They Say it’s Your Birthday

Feb 20, 2011

On Saturday we celebrated Sterling’s First Birthday with a party at our house with family and friends. Everything was perfect. We could not have asked for better weather, 70 degrees and bright and sunny. I think Sterling had a fabulous time! I know we did as some of our close friends stayed til almost midnight! I just wanted to share a few pictures with ya’ll! And by a few pictures, I mean far too many! Sorry if you get bored, but I couldn’t resist sharing all these.
