As expected, we had a fabulous time at number eight's first birthday party. (Don't you love his birthday crown? My daughter found it on etsy!) The little cousins were running through the house, chasing one another with helium balloons, and we watched an incredibly sweet and touching video that my son-in-law created showing his first year in pictures and videos.
I created a chalkboard look poster, and my daughter added some adorable table decorations....
His cutie-patootie shirt was an etsy find as well...
The birthday boy had revolted against taking his afternoon nap, and so he was pretty chill during the party.
As you can see in my first photo in this post, he was far more interested in the paper straw flags and little candies on the cake than eating the cake or frosting.
We had a decent rain shower in the morning, but by the time the party began, we had sunny skies. The cousins were then able to run around in the front yard for a bit before the party ended.
A good time was had by all!
