macie's first birthday is tuesday, but we had her party today. we've had ice and snow the past few days...so several people weren't able to make it. we had lots of fun, though. she opened presents (her cousins parker and peyton helped). then we had a special candle that her grandpa moody bought on their trip to china, a few months before he died. he never knew about macie, but he bought it knowing that blake and i would have a baby and need a special candle to celebrate her first birthday someday. today was that day...except the sentimental candle almost caught the whole house on fire! you can see the disaster in the pictures. it was a good thing we had kenny, a firefighter, here. her little smash cake was ruined, but she enjoyed a piece of the big cake and she never knew the difference.
