MJ is 1!

On Saturday afternoon, we had the joy of attending the 1st birthday party of a good friend. Here's the invitation (minus the location info, a courtesy rule of my blog). Andrea handmade them as well as most of the decorations.

How awesome are these decorations! She cut, glued & painted most of these herself. And learned the "joys" of glitter. A banner, centerpieces, cake pop boxes. She even made goodies bags for the kids. So sweet. And those Mickey pops? Oreos in chocolate! Mmm. She was busy, busy, busy. And of course she made MJ's big cupcake.

We got there early so I could take pictures of everything set up and give a hand if needed. We saw some old friends and made some new ones.

Here comes the birthday boy! Look at how adorable he is!

Look how stylin', in his Mickey outfit. Another show of craftiness on his mom's part, check out that shirt. Yep, she made that too.

MJ made the rounds greeting his guests just like a gentleman.

There's a small gap of no pictures here when we ate. There was a very yummy chicken & broccoli alfredo, which Keira of course loved. So did I, for that matter. There was also pizza and a few other options. Before and during dinner, the kids played and the adults socialized.

Meet Tim. Ben's dad & our resident outlet guard.

Look at this little ham!


Such a little cutie!

 Then came the cake. He was more interested in the candle at first, but then he got into the cake.

A beautiful family.

Dessert time!

(In case anyone is wondering where Keira was in these pics, she was happily napping away in her Ergo on my back.)

Afterward, the presents were opened.

 A tired birthday boy.
