E's Birthday Party: Part 2: Festivities

Once the decorating was all done with and the guests had arrived, we had SO much fun. I made E this "One" shirt with iron on vinyl, and the suspenders were vintage thrifted that I cut down to his size. (He didn't really want to keep them on. 

Our little Family.
Grandpa 


Auntie
I made this little Top Hat party hat for E using a plastic container, some spray paint, a printed 1, and elastic.
The cake eating was the best part of the whole day. I am so not a cake decorator, so I tried something really simple. I striped the cake with red fruit by the foot, and added a pennant on top and an elephant candle. As you can see it melted a bit in the sun.
E was in HEAVEN. He loves him some sugar, just like his mama does. He resorted to sticking his entire face into the cake.


Cake kiss!
 
If I knew a personal cake was all I needed for these smiles, I may have obliged much earlier. He kept looking around at everyone and saying "MMmm"!
 
Oh I love this messy faced boy.

Getting cleaned up in the sink.

The ice cream cone bar was one of the things I didn't have time to put together. I put out a few of the toppings, and we had PLAY DOUGH ice cream at my request. Have you ever had it? It's like the definition of summer.

 Remember when I said E's cake was my favorite part of the day? I lied. This was my favorite part of the day.

And TA DA!!! Magnificent! I remember the days of a warm little body snugged up against my swimsuit skin. You captured it all beautifully. Looks like you will need to have a bunch more kids so we can multiply and replenish our vicarious living through you. :)

I can totally relate to all the emotions in this post. I think I cried three times on my son's first birthday. It is so much fun too. E is just scrumptious!

Hi Sarah, your pictures are so GREAT, as I knew they would be. E is so cute and I love the ones in the pool with you, the cake and the 'tired' one. Good thing I know who to call when planning Isaak and Krysti's next party...are you in the market?? :)
