To view the rest of the pictures of the day's festivities:

Taking your lead with your love of all things Cookie Monster (Gee, I wonder who you inherited your love of Muppets?!?), Katy, we decided to have a Cookie Monster themed first birthday celebration. Saturday, February 19, 2011, was the day of the party and it was a huge success!

All relatives from out of town arrived to our house safe and sound. Grandparents arrived with cookies galore and gifts for the birthday girl. In attendance for the party were; Grandma and Pop-Pop Tinkey, Auntie Hope, Molly, Nana and Grandpa Jones, Aunt Megan, Uncle Jason, Uncle Rob, Aunt Julie, the Keys family, Charltons, Foleys, Smilies, Allens, Hitchcocks- about 30 guests, total! What a fun, boisterous crowd!

You had fun showing off your new moves, Katy- walking like a big girl. You greeted all of your guests with smiles. You were certainly the life of the party and you managed to get fed more than a few cookies by willing aunts, uncles and grandparents. Since you woke up from your nice, long nap right before the party, you were in a GREAT mood throughout the party and your handled the noise, laughter, food and overall, general stimulus like a champ. You are most certainly my Party Girl, Katy! :-)

Guests enjoyed cookies, cookies, cookies and Cookie Monster cupcakes and ice cream. We played "Put the cookie in Cookie Monster's mouth" (Pin the tail on the donkey) and Anderson Hitchcock won. Caleb Smilie won the Cookie Jar guessing game by guessing 72 cookies- there were really 73 cookies in the cookie jar.

Katy, you had fun opening your gifts with a little help from friends Elizabeth Allen and Jordan Hitchcock. You received lots of fun toys, interesting books, stuffed animals and pretty clothes. Now, where to put all of your new toys...?

Guests mingled and had a good time. The weather was a perfect sunny 70 degrees. And, everybody got to be a Cookie Monster for the day with all of the yummy cookies!

Family and close friends stayed for dinner, after the party. I guess you could call it an "after party." We had lasagna, baked ziti and of course, more cookies for dessert. It was nice to relax after a hectic afternoon. You were very well-behaved all day- having fun, smiling and basking in all of the extra attention.
