The truth is this party was more than just a celebration of Reese's 1st birthday! While that was defiantly the focus and most important reason for Arnold and I to host such a big event, we had a hidden agenda...This was also an anniversary party for the two of us. The anniversary of our lives changing forever and receiving the most precious gift we'd ever been given. As first time parents you never know what to expect, but our expectations were far exceeded with Reese. This past year has truly been the greatest year of our lives. I really wish I could put into words the joy and fulfillment Reese brings to us everyday. We know there will be tough times as parents, we know there will be trials and challenges ahead. But this year...this year was perfection!
So even though poor little Reese was sick and she didn't really get to enjoy the fun, I'd still do it again.
Thanks to everyone who came. We have the best family, friends and neighbors in the world! These pictures represent only a highlight of all the wonderful shots that our good friend Chellese took for us!
