Yesterday was Ben’s party. Photos coming soon. Accidentally coordinating it with Daylight Savings was a Catch 22. He made it through a longer period of time since his nap time was technically pushed back an extra hour. YAY. We woke up to the doorbell ringing and me questioning what day it was when the nanny arrived this morning. BOO.
I originally wanted a two hour party simply serving cake. Since we live far away from most people, the 2 hour event was down voted by PTB and we stretched it to 3 hours. Once we added a third hour, food, beverages, and a theme were added to the mix. Oh my.
I’m a procrastinator through and through. I had to place a rush on his invitation order because I didn’t even design them until 3 weeks before the party. No other details or food were worked on until Friday night before the party. And we were barely home on Saturday. Lots of late nights makes for one tired mommy. Around 45 people in my home makes for one messy house. A cupcake all to himself and a French macaron on a stick makes for one happy one year old. And really that’s all that matters right?
I am so incredibly thankful to all of our friends and family for coming out and helping us celebrate. I can’t thank our friend Joy enough for taking over the task of pictures so I didn’t have to stress about missing any special moments. When I regain consciousness I will post pictures and details 🙂
