Zoe - The Birthday Girl!

Today is Zoe's 1st Birthday!!

We are currently in Omaha, NE because last night we picked up my sister Gabby from the airport down here. Later on today we will be driving back to Sioux Falls and we will go to CiCi's with family for dinner. We are planning a party for her on Saturday!

I cannot believe it has been a whole year already. This year has flown by! Everyone told me it would go by fast so I made sure each day was cherished, but even then, the year seemed to pass by more quickly than previous years. She is the most beautiful baby girl that I have ever seen, I absolutely adore her.
