It's hard to believe that our little McKenna is ONE today! 
We couldn't be more blessed and I love the amount of joy and energy she has brought into our lives. I knew from the time she started moving around in my tummy she was going to be a mover and a shaker. She keeps us on our toes and I love every minute of it. She is so so precious.  
January 3rd is such a special day for us. Number one because it's the day McKenna was born (duh) but it is also Bob and I's original wedding day before my accident. I love that we now have a joyous occasion to celebrate each year on January 3rd. 
I love to plan a birthday party. (another duh) I get so excited about them that I start brainstorming months in advance. Well Christmas (and life with 2 kiddos) threw me off a little bit this year. Night Owl was one of the first things that came to mind when I started thinking of a theme for Kenna's 1st birthday party. It fit her perfectly and I loved the idea of it but couldn't really get the ball rolling with it. So, as of last week I have decided to go with the theme Busy Bee for her party. Her party that is actually in 11 days! I was so late in getting things started that I had to make the invites super last minute and they just went in the mail today.
They have a slight resemblance of something winnie the pooh might have come up with, but whatever, they work.
I am excited about stripes being a big part of the party decor and my super awesome husband agreed to a late night IKEA trip the other night so I could get some black and white striped fabric. I dyed the fabric in yellow rit dye to get some bold bumble bee stripes. I did a test strip first with golden yellow and lemon yellow.
I decided to go with the lemon yellow and dyed 3 yards at a time in my washing machine. Not exactly sure what I am doing with 6 yards of black and yellow striped fabric but something fun!

How fun was the year in review post Kristen did?! I loved looking back at some highlights from 2011, such a great year! I never really got a chance to document McKenna walking on the blog so here is a little clip of our walking one year old! So crazy!
Happy Birthday sweet McKenna! We love you SO much!!!!
