Some Bunny Is Turning One ~ Elliott’s First Birthday Party

We celebrated our littlest babe's first birthday today.  She doesn't actually turn one until the 27th, but we decided to celebrate on this weekend.  The theme was 'Some Bunny Is Turning One' and the story behind it is two-fold.  Stephen has always called Elliott his "honey bunny" and her favorite night-time lovey is a bunny [...]
