Cute as a Button

I thought that I would post some pictures from Charlotte's "Cute as a Button" birthday party this past Sunday in Omaha. While the weather didn't exactly cooperate, the day was pretty perfect overall. Thank you again to everyone who helped us celebrate this GIGANTIC milestone, and especially to my sister Jill and her hubby for lending us their house for the day!

I decided that I want to be a "make the cake" mom. Here is year #1. Cute and simple.

Yummy button cupcakes. They were so cute!

A thank you gift to Charlotte's grandparents, aunts and uncles for all that they did for us this past year. We truly could not have done it with out them.

CUTEST PICTURE EVER (Thanks, Erin!) This was taken while we were singing "Happy Birthday." She looks like she's loving it!

Getting curious...

She is very good at sharing.

Its not a party until there's frosting in your ear.

All cleaned up and heading up for a nap. She definitely partied her little booty off!

Family picture...Mom, Dad and one tired one year old!

If anyone has more pictures, feel free to send them my way. I managed to keep myself busy enough that I didn't take near as many pictures as I had wanted to. Go figure.

So, that about wraps it up...we successfully conquered YEAR 1, the first chapter has come to an end. Something tells me that year 2 has good things in store for Little Miss Ritchie. We keep trusting that God has big plans for us and we live each and every day appreciating the little things.


  1. What a cute party and precious birthday girl! The frosting in the ear photo is priceless :) Happy First Birthday Charlotte!

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! What a great idea and great job on the cake, cupcakes and cookies. Happy Birthday Miss Charlotte!!

  3. oh my gosh, she is too adorable, I love the frosting in the ear too! hehe. I bought that button mold (actually, two on accident) and can't wait to use it!
