Presley's 1st Birthday!!

 I can't believe it's been a year since this little princess was born!! The time has flown by and she is growing up way to fast! We love every single stage of life she has gone through, and she is super fun right now! Presley has been such a great baby and we love her more than we ever could have imagined!
She is my best little buddy and we love spending time with eachother (which is good since we are together all day every day). She keeps me busy and entertained, and I am just amazed at how beautiful and smart and funny she is! She already has such a cute personality, I'm so excited to continue watching her grow, even though I wish she would stay my little baby for forever!

It's hard to think of how life was before she came along. She made me a mom, which is a dream come true. And she is seriously the best kid I ever could have asked for!
 We had a little party for her on her birthday. Swimming, presents and cake (and lots of pink frosting).

Just a warning, this post is a picture overload. BUT she is my baby and it's her birthday so i don't care! :)

 I had some little photo shoots with her in the days leading up to her birthday. (those pics will come in a later post, and there will be Lots of those too!)
 My sister Melanie and her family came over to celebrate with us.

 Me and my birthday girl! ♥

 Family birthday picture

 Getting ready to start opening the presents.....

 She got lots of really cute clothes and some much needed new toys and books to keep her busy.
 She did pretty good at opening the presents (for being a 1 year old)
 And THIS..... this was her favorite present of all. Melanie got it for her and everything she opened after this present was not exciting to her because she just wanted to snuggle with the pink lady bug.

 The cake......While trying to get a picture with her and the cake she snuck some frosting off of the corner...
 This is the CUTEST face in the world!! So proud of the frosting she got lol

 poor girl was getting tired. The swimming and presents was just so much fun!
 But then she realized how much fun it was to smush the cake

Here are a couple of videos of her enjoying her cake :)

 And she's tired again, lol.

After she was done, she was pretty messy. Pink frosting and cake everywhere!
So we rolled her highchair outside and hosed her and the chair off..... :)
Good thing she loves water!

Mommy/daughter matching pedicures! ♥
(No I didn't take her to ge them done. I worked very hard to get those tiny piggies painted and finally got them!)

 I can't believe that just a year ago this tiny little angel was born......

Happy Birthday Presley Faye!! We love you!! ♥ ♥

Utah Trip - Cabin

 We were able to go up to My Grandma's cabin and spend some time with some of my MacKay side of the family and celebrate Grandma's Birthday.

Here is my Uncle Kirk holding Presley. She was a little stinker and didn't want my uncles to hold her. We got this picture right before the screaming started.
 But she loooooooves to have her daddy hold her!!
 This was actually not at the cabin, but we were able to see my sister Rebecca as well. She even held Presley for a picture (which if you know Rebecca you know that's a pretty big deal)   :)
 Uncle Kirk and Lane getting their bows ready to shoot.
We convinced Josh to try shooting their bows. He has only ever shot one once, and that was my dad's several years ago. He got out there and got a bullseye on the first shot! And pretty much every shot after that too!
I had to show off my skills so we pulled out the 22 and shot with that.

 We took a nice walk down to the river and were able to get some pretty pictures together. It is always so pretty down there!!
 My cousin Megan was Presley's best friend up there. She was my little babysitter, which is weird since I remember Megan being a baby!

They fed us some great food and we stayed up way to late talking with my aunts, uncles, cousins and Grandma, but it was lots of fun!

 Grandma spent her birthday relaxing on the couch with an afgan over her lap, reading grandpa's biography. It was really nice to just sit with her and chat! I love her SO much!! Presley's middle name is actually after my Grandma....  Donna Faye & Presley Faye
I'm so glad that I got that time with family, especially with my Grandma. I never know how much longer she has and I cherish each visit with her! It's also great to be able to let Presley meet her and spend some time with her (even though she won't remember these times, we have pictures and videos for her to see later).
