We had Mavry's first birthday party a few weeks after her actual birthday in order to buy us two extra weekends to work on the house and get ready. We managed to get the big stuff crossed off our list before the party! We got the place looking decent and Colin put in a fence in the front (with the help of a few friends). I painted the fence (with the help of my mama group friends).
I had some nice help getting the favor bags ready for the party. A friend who I taught with in China came over to help cut the pineapple to get ready for dehydrating. She cut them in the special Chinese way to make the most of the fruit. The dehydrated pineapple went into the bag with homemade fruit roll ups, dehydrated oranges and apple slices.
We had a really lovely warm sunny day to celebrate. We were thankful for our huge shade tree
Happy birthday to our bright and wonderful Mavry Arden!
