Last week we celebrated our big ONE year old! I went back and forth about having a big first birthday party and eventually settle on going big or going home. When your immediate family alone is 30ish people, what’s a few more?! We hosted it at our house and thankfully the Lord took pity on me and we woke up to bright, sunny skies and the most perfect day for a indoor/outdoor party!
As much as I tried to get done the weekend and week before I was still running around like a chicken with my head cut off for most of the day handling last minute details and didn’t have time to snap any pics before everyone got here. Then I proceeded to forget to take pretty much ANY pictures during the party, so thanks to my friends and family for making most of this post possible 😉 Here are some pictures of the big day!
And a #bday banner from the Dollar Spot at Target pretty much wrapped it up! Funny story, I took these to our grocery store the morning of the party to have them filled with air. After she huffed and puffed about being super busy because didn’t I know Mother’s Day was tomorrow? it turned out that you fill them with air…from your lungs. Go me.
I shared the story of these non-pineapple, pineapple cookie favors I made for our guests over on Instagram the day before the party. So funny. My life is ridiculous (but they were adorable).
This guy did not care one lick about the actual cake underneath all those sprinkles and icing. The whole back half of icing was gone but the cake was barely touched. He does not get that from me! #allcake #noicingplease Side note: This and other pictures my sister took with her iPhone 7 has me super convinced that I need one. You know, for work purposes.
Camden Lewis, there are no words that can accurately express the love and joy you bring to our live’s every single day just by simply being here. Being your mom is the absolute best, most rewarding thing I’ve ever done and I’m so grateful of the ways you have changed me in the last year! You are already loyal, kind, opinionated, silly, smart and a physical reminder of God’s love, grace, and provision. I love you to the moon and back, sweet boy!
