Maebh’s First Birthday Party – It Was A Hoot!

Today the snow melted and the sun was shinning and lots of friends joined us to celebrate Maebh’s first birthday.  Unfortunately a bunch were sick and couldn’t come, but it was a lot of fun with those who did make it.

We did an Owl themed party, which turned out to be a HOOT! 😉

Here are tons of photos of the big party and a video.  On her actual birthday we will probably give her an ice cream treat.

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
