When I booked Hannah’s party this year I was thinking that Henry would be about 2 weeks old, so I didn’t want to have it at our house. With that in mind, we booked it at a local ballet studio complete with a prima ballerina! Because baby boy was early I probably could have pulled off something a little simpler, but Hannah had a great time and it was such an easy party (if there is such a thing).
Doing a little warm-up with the ballerina.
Story time. She read Angelina Ballerina and Sleeping Beauty. (She looks a little scary in this picture). They all sat quietly and listened.
Playing freeze dance to “Let it Go.”
And take a bow.
Nathan watched from the sidelines.
After the studio time we went back to have cake, make a craft and open presents.
Nursing break in the massage chair. I think this is for the professional ballerina’s in the studio, but a few of us took advantage of it.
Sweet birthday girl on the way home. She NEVER naps anymore, so I know she was worn out. Birthdays are hard work!!
Afterwards, all of our family that was in town came back to our house for dinner. Scott grilled steaks and we had fun just hanging out. This is the only picture we have, but there was good food, kids on the swing set, a game of Bocce ball going on, and good weather.

Thanks to all of those who came to help us celebrate our sweet girl and we missed the ones who couldn’t make it!
