So five days later, I am just starting to recover from the first birthday madness. I mean, it took 2 days just to clean up the mess from the party!!! (I’m sure it didn’t have to take that long, but whatever… don’t judge me)
And then I realized that I haven’t shown you all the PICTURES!!! And I need to blog about it!!!
Except for the fact that, there aren’t that many… and the only reason there are any is because my friend Nicole, an amazing photographer, took them for me.
Not exactly the Martha Stewart moment I had hoped for.
Don’t get me wrong. The party was awesome. Our friends were amazing, generous, and happy hanging out in the enormous backyard. The food was good, the birthday cake was AWESOME (if I do say so myself) but it really was chaos. (And about 100 degrees…)
I forget how out of practice I am at throwing parties.
I wanted to have everything organized, prepped and ready to go beforehand, so that when it came down to party time, I wouldn’t be racing around like a maniac.
Ahhhh… if wishes were horses… Drew would have had a pony for his birthday.
Overall it was great. But I didn’t get a chance to talk to any of my friends. Didn’t even know where my kid was half the time (thank you to my mother-in-law for making sure he was even fed) and it was like Brian and I were running around with our HAIR on fire.
But then, amidst the chaos, there was this.
|Drew loves it when people sing to him. So the birthday song? HEAVEN.
|My Chubby Little Monkey
|I’m watching you Monkey
|Let the assault begin!
|Holy sh** what IS this stuff? Amazing!
|It got MUCH messier, but my camera ran out of juice… whoops.
|WOOOHOOOO I’m ONE!!!
