Well, our current status is not very fun -- we are sickly sick. All of us. Except for Kristopher, who has remained unscathed so far. Charlotte started with croup last week. Then Barrett had high fever and was diagnosed with a sinus infection on Monday. And then I was diagnosed with a sinus infection, ear infection, and walking pneumonia on Tuesday. And then the pediatrician called in antibiotics for Charlotte on Wednesday because she still wasn't better from the croup last week. I'm just so grateful that they called in the medicine for her without me having to bring her back for a second appointment. Because with the way I feel, there's a 50/50 chance I would have shown up in my my bathrobe. And no one wants that. Trust me. I'm just hoping that we all get better soon because this marks Day Eight and a Half of sickness in our house and everyone is starting to wear a little thin.

|Big laugh from the birthday girl!|
|Charlotte's monogram on our front door for the party.|
The pink organza bow is the one we used when she came home from the hospital!
|Pretty invitation and enclosure card|
|Lauren's printable drink bottle wrappers|
|"Fancy" food, one-year-old style: chicken popovers, PBJ pinwheels, white chocolate covered cherries, cake dip, and white chocolate covered oreo pops sprinkled with pearls~|
Finally, time for cake!!

|"Big" cake, for the adults|
I'd been practicing buttercream roses so I could make a cake that was completely covered with them.
The more icing, the better, right??
|We decided to take off her silk dress so she could enjoy the cake. But, she still wore her pearls :)|
And last, but not least -- the party favors!
Can you spy the colorful bags hanging on either side of the windows?
|Cute printable favor tags designed by Lauren!|
It was a wonderful day! Thank you to all our family and friends who made Charlotte's birthday so special!
We love you, Charlotte!
Happy Birthday ~ ~ ~
