First Birthday Party Pictures!

Officially he is a ONE YEAR OLD!!!! We made it! We made it! Everything went very well except for the slight hiccup on Friday evening. My niece Penelope decided she wanted to give her mommy just a little taste of what it would feel like when she makes her debut. I get a call Friday night right after I had just STARTED my errands saying my sister (who is not due until sometime in September) thinks she is in labor. My heart was all a flutter with emotions! I wasn't upset about the party I was just concerned about what I was going to do with the OMG fabulous cake we had coming. But thankfully Nelly decided to hang on a bit longer.

The cake was the centerpiece! It was so delicious! As we speak I'm noshing on left overs. The only thing I regretted was having a party at 10:40 in the morning. It was a lovely sentiment when the idea hit me but when it was 8:30 and I was just climbing the mountain to get to my parents house I thought I should have made the party at 3 PM! I was so tired! Remember my post about going to bed at 8 PM Friday night? Please! I didn't even get home until 10!

It was a great party with tons of people and food. We served brunch and lunch. Which is a favorite of mine! Cupcakes, Cake, Balloons, loud noises, bright colors, and laughter.

We were a bit worried how Phoenix would act. He's not the worlds nicest baby. He has his moments, but sometimes he can be down right mean to other kids. He did have his moments at the party, but for the most part he did really great, considering his party started at his nap time.

Enjoy a few pictures from the party and head over to my Flickr album (link on left side) to see more!

The drum kit from Ab-ba and Anthony. This is a HIT. This kid is a musician for real

Baby Grand Piano from Daddy. Another hit!

Mommy's idea: Over 200 pictures strung through out the backyard

Serious sugar rush

Could only place the hat on his head for a photo op. He would NOT wear it!

He was so tired (party was right at nap time) he didn't want to feed himself, at first.

Another birthday gift, that doubled as a party entertainment. Ball Pit.

Photo sign for guest to leave birthday wishes. Finished & Framed product will be hung in his room.

Mommy's gift bag idea. Tutuorial (LOL) in another post.

Phoenix's fantastic mini cake

"How wonderful life is, now that you're in the world!"

Fabulous, fantastic, and delicious birthday cake! It was awesome! Worth every single penny!!
