The party don't start till I walk in.....

Birthday week is finally coming to an end!
And what better way to finish it off than with Jamie's 1st Bday Bash!
If you missed the invite last Saturday, the official theme was
"Guess Whooooo's Turning One!"
The house was decked out with lots of blue, green, brown & owls galore!
 
All paper products courtesy of Toadally Cute
 The man of the hour.
(Doesn't he look THRILLED to be turning 1??  Oh the joys of photographing a BUSY toddler!)
Owl Shirt from WeChooseJoy

MENU
BBQ Pulled Pork & Chicken
Baked Beans
Cheesy Corn
Coleslaw
Watermelon
and...
CUPCAKES!!

White Peach Sangria and Cranberry Lemonade to quench your thirst
(Both were new recipes and absolutely to die for.  The Sangria will be a staple at all our summer parties from here on out!!)

The infamous hat!  And matching bib.
From Sunshine Daydream
 Whoooo's ready for some cake??
This guy! 
(Note the matching diaper....you didn't think this cloth addict would miss an opportunity to buy new fluff did you??  LOL.  Truth be told, the diaper came first and kind of inspired the whole theme!)

 





 Notice the hat....propped precariously on the back of his chair?  Yeah, that's about as close to his head as we could get it.  I can't say I'm surprised.....

The EyeCanSee's
Look at us!  We survived an entire year of parenting and we're still smiling!
Too bad we can't say the same for our kid....oh well....2 outta 3 ain't bad!

Whew!  This turning one business is tough work!  Let me take a load off on my sweet new chair!

Thanks for coming!
Happy Friday friends!

Emily- you did such a great job planning- you didn't miss a beat! I am going to have to look at some of the websites for the boys- we have decided that we are doing a pizza party since their b-day is on a Saturday might as well do it up right- not at our house! Well it looks like it was a really fun time! Good job momma! :)
