When we were brainstorming for a theme for Natalie's first birthday, we tried coming up with something that best reflected her personality. We would fondly call her our little sunshine because of her very smiley and friendly personality and disposition. She always brought a smile to everyone's face because of her playful nature.
So when I said that there should be sunshine in our theme, my husband suggested calling it "Sunshine on a Rainy Day!" (since September is still rainy season! haha). I thought this was just perfect :)
|We celebrated Natalie's 1st Birthday and Dedication to the Lord together.|
During the prayer and blessing, Natalie wanted to say her own prayer on the mic :)
|I had fun coming up with concepts for the dessert table and styling it for the party.|
More on this in another post :)

|Circle Time! :)|
Teacher Marla led the kids with familiar songs from Natalie's Playlist.
This was an activity that we knew Natalie would enjoy since she loved music and playing with musical instruments.
|Bells, triangles, tambourines and maracas were among the instruments that we prepared for the kids|
|And the egg shakers made by Teacher Marge! :)|
|Big sis Audrey was having fun following the actions for the songs :)|
|And finally, the blowing of the birthday candle! (care of Audrey hehe) :)|
|Thank you so much to Adrian Santos of Catilo Photography and the Events by Marge team (Teacher Marge, Teacher Kaki and Teacher Marla) for helping us out and making Natalie's celebration fun and awesome!!! :)|
