his actual birthday is this week and i really can't believe he's almost one.
i think, in some way, i'm in denial. it just went too fast.
i was grateful for my sister who helped me pull it off. i just couldn't get my act together for this party and i was feeling guilty for not having the 'umph' needed to plan a party like i normally do. now that i'm able to sit back and reflect, i realize that i was putting it off because i just don't want him to grow up so fast. i know, i know...it's good that they grow up, i just wish it didn't have to be a lightning speed!
table centerpieces...i had plans of putting pictures on stakes in the buckets, but didn't get to it.
here's some of my favorite photos taken from the party.
sissy & the happiest baby...he was (as usual) cracking us up. i need to video him.
the 'men' cracking themselves up...i didn't ask...i don't want to know.
nana & oma...oma wouldn't leave the kitchen window until nana got there. funny...
a great picture of opa
the little princess got a BIG kick out of the fact that we gave the happiest baby his own cupcake to devour. i realized that she has not witnessed this tradition before. she wouldn't leave his side.
it was a nice afternoon.
thank you suz and brent for all your help!!! mom, inka and janice thanks for helping with the food. i love all of you and am so thankful to have family so close and so involved.
