Hazeline’s Sofia the First Birthday Party

After a small family party at our house last week, we had Hazeline’s big party with friends this past weekend.  And since she’s been all Sofia, all the time, there was no doubt from the very beginning that it would be a Sofia the First birthday party.   I won’t lie, the day did not […]
