Taryn's First Birthday!

One year today, I gave birth to Taryn Jackson. I am just amazed at how fast the time has flown by in the last year. She is such a joy to have in our family, that our lives would be lost without her. (Look at all that dark cute)

Here is the little Blondie herself opening her "ball machine." She was all about ripping the paper off the presents.
It took a while to get her to unwrap her gifts, because she just wanted to unwrap one and then play with it. We had to do a lot of coaxing to get her to open more.
This is the ball machine we gave her for her birthday. She loves it because it moves fast and is crazy, just like her. Thank goodness it is a hit and she likes it better than the box it came in. HEE HEE.
Here is our little princess. I loved the feathery hat, had to get it!
I worked, pretty much, the whole afternoon to get her cake finished. How does it look?Once we sang "Happy Birthday" to Taryn, we cut her a piece of cake and she dove for it.
This was about 2 seconds after I gave her the piece of cake. She couldn't shove it into her mouth fast enough.
This balloon was at the Party City store and I couldn't resist. I had to have it.
Taryn, in all her glory. She had more fun with the cake than anything else.
Tyson decided that since his little sister could eat her cake with her hands, he would too. They both were covered in cake and frosting.
Trying to decide which finger to lick first.
Frosting face.She was too proud of herself. What a little imp!
Here is a video of her eating her cake. It is a good laugh. Thank you to Grandma T, MomaD, PopaD, Aunt D, Uncle Jesse, Grandma and Grandpa Jackson and the boys for all her presents. She was a little princess today!

That was too cute. I loved her smacking the whole time. I bet she needed a nice glass of milk to wash it down!
