1st Birthday Party

For Hammond's first birthday, Jamie and I decided we would celebrate him (of course) and the fact that he and I had made it through one full year of parenting!  Woohoo.  So we threw a big celebration with our friends and his. :)

Here are a few snapshots of the celebration...

Hadley was a huge help setting up the kids' snacks
(popcorn, goldfish, raisins, apples)

the dessert table

I made a banner of pictures from Hammond's first year...it was
one of my favorites.  and i still haven't taken it down yet!

beverages just taste better out of a mason jar + a striped straw :)

 And then came the cake...

wait for it...

wait for it...

 and the meltdown!

Outside of the cake meltdown -- I'm thinking it had more to do with all of the attention on him and the birthday song -- the rest of the birthday celebration sure was fun!  And I loved celebrating his first year of life.
