You know that I've been excited about my baby's elephant party for a while now.
We had such a sweet little party with our family last weekend.
For dinner, I ordered chicken nuggets from Chick Fil-A and served them up with homemade mac and cheese and peas and carrots. Mmmmm.
So simple and so kid-friendly.
No one noticed dinner, though.
All eyes were on the amazing assortment of cupcakes my friend, Kyla, made.
Banana Cream Pie (with a vanilla center).
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup
And Chocolate Cream Pie (with a chocolate cream center)
I bundled up the tee shirts I'd made and had those ready for take-homes.
Whoa. Say that three times fast.
Here's my balloon wreath. We use it for every birthday and it makes the birthday boy (or me) feel special for a week or two before the big day.
Mimi made sure and snapped a quick pic of Mommy and Daddy with the birthday boy.
This is my son. He did not mess around with that piece of cake.
The big boys enjoyed chasing balloons around the living room while the grandparents convinced them to try out static electricity.
Then they helped the birthday boy open his presents.
Actually, they opened his presents and the birthday boy enjoyed the tissue paper.
After lots of visiting and running around and sneaking extra cupcakes, it was time to say goodnight.
I love simple gatherings with family and special memories made with sweet cousins.
Happy Birthday, precious boy. You are loved by many.
