We were so excited to have Hadleigh's first birthday party on 8.27.11 - BUT Hurricane Irene had some other plans! Unfortunately because of the weather, very few people were able to come. We still made the best of it and Hadleigh had a blast. She got lots of gifts and got to play with her cousins. Our power went out about 30 minutes before the party was supposed to start, so that was interesting! Not that we wouldn't ever forget her 1st birthday party, but now we really won't! I had worked on a few DIY projects for Hadleigh's party. I think I did a pretty good job!
