Our Little Family Celebration of Olive

Olive's final birthday party was on her actual birthday with just our little family.
It was the perfect way to wrap up her week long birthday celebration.

We sang Happy Birthday all day long.

We did a little birthday photo shoot.

 Then we wrapped up the day by eating dinner, reminiscing about Olive's BIRTHday last year

and we took a picture on her exact birthday - 4:45pm!

I opted to put the gifts in boxes and not wrap them this year.  I wanted her to be excited about the contents of the boxes and not the wrapping paper.  It worked like a charm and she loved the walking toy, Saltwater sandals and pool float we got her.

 We also put together her new trike!

 Cakes are fun
and first birthday parties really are the best!!
We had a wonderful, low-key birthday at home with just our little family.


  1. Catching up on my blog reading and so happy to see that Olive was well celebrated!! Happy (belated) Birthday to your cutie pie! :)

  2. What a fun day! Sometimes those parties are the best :) We still have a "family party" as my kids call it every year - and I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one snapping pics at the exact birth time - I still do that! #nerdymom (me, not you! :)

  3. Such a special day! Love the idea of taking a picture at her actual time of birth :) She is seriously adorable - and looking so big in those first pictures!
