Maddox's First Birthday Party

I admit I waited until the last minute to actually start the LONG list of projects and such for Maddox's 1st Birthday Party.  Since we were having the party at our house, I also had to paint a couple of rooms and hang pictures and curtains and all that jazz.  All the painting, decorating, project making was exhausting but... it all came together in the end. 

I decided to hire a photographer to take pictures so I could actually enjoy the party and not worry about that part.  Best decision ever.  I highly recommend doing the same (hint hint... I shoot birthday parties lol).  I hired a fellow local photographer, Katlyn Marie Photography.  She did a great job and I'm so thankful for all the pictures.  Everything was a bit of a whirlwind and it went so fast.  There are several pictures that I wish I could have gotten but oh well! :)

We, of course, went with a baseball theme... duh.  I think everything turned out great :)  Although it looks like Pinterest threw up a little lol  I tried my best to keep the cost of the party down so I made quite a bit of the decorations myself.  My mother in law made the yummy strawberry cakes (thanks Joy!) and I decorated them (definitely don't count that as one of my talents lol).

I'm so grateful for family and friends that took time out of their busy weekend to come celebrate my sweet boy.  He is indeed blessed to have so many people love him.  We missed those that couldn't make it for various reasons.

So here are lots of pictures.... (like I said.. these are all by Katlyn Marie Photography.  I didn't pick up the camera).








I'm thinking about hanging this in his room.  I just don't think I can part with it :)

Thanks for the idea Theryne :)






Maddox loves Tanner :)

Maddox's little buddies...





This pretty much sums up his thoughts on cake lol I was shocked he didn't like it but I'm totally cool with that because I know it will change very soon.













Looks like Maddox got a handful of Uncle Mike's beard hehe :)
