Brendan and Cason turned one (what?! HOW are they already that old?!) on December 18th, but we had their party the Saturday before that. (and I’m just now blogging about it? yeah, yeah, I know…)
The theme was Winter ONEderland, and the (minimal) decor was “wintery.” We also served chili and potato soup + a hot chocolate bar and their cupcakes (made by my awesome mom!) to go with the winter theme. I made a gazillion…er, 60ish…snowflake shaped sugar cookies and decorated them. Then I bagged them in sets of two and attached card-stock that read, “No Two Are Alike” and gave them out as favors.
The room we were in at the YMCA echoes quite a lot, and it was loud, and there were lots of people. Cason was fine with it all, but Brendan cried a lot and spent most of the party with me. They got SO MANY things – to be completely honest, it’s a bit overwhelming. All told, it was a fun day and I just loved celebrating my babies being one!
