Thank you to all of you who attended Karrot's first birthday party. We had a great turn out.
First off, let me give most of the credit to my mom. I named the theme and she went all out. She thought of borrowing tables and chairs and got the decorations and all. Thank you for all your hard work!
We started off a little late as my mom ordered the pig for 2:00pm and the party started at 1:00pm. I also started the punch late and it called for juicing a bunch of lemons and we didn't have a juicer. It turned out yummy,though!
After rushing around and inviting everyone to eat, I almost forgot we had things to do! We had a pinata for the kids and then opened gifts and ate cake. I was surprised how excited the adults were to watch it all.
As pictures can say better than words how the day went, here you go!
