Yesterday was D’s first birthday. We had a nice evening at my parents house. During the day we had to run errands to get ready for D’s party.
Today was the party. It was Toy Story themed. I had coloring pages for the kids (or any adult that wanted to color), piggy banks representing Hamm that the kids could decorate, There’s a Snake in my boot game (throw a rubber snake into a cowboy boot), pin the tail on Bullseye, a knock the cups down game (we had little pencil cups that we put pictures of the evil Mr. Potato Head’s wanted poster on and then had people knock them down), and a photo booth. We, of course, had pizza (from Costco going by Pizza Planet), a veggie tray, and chips. Goodie bags included a Toy Story activity book, Crayons, a jar of play-doh, a Toy Story cup, a crazy straw, and a large army man. For the children under one they also got a baby food pouch and a teething ring.
I wish I was able to get photos of everything, but I was too busy trying to make sure it all went well. I am exhausted and just hope that everything was a success. People said that they enjoyed the party. So I will hang my hat on that, so to speak.
D has been going non-stop since his party. He is fighting so hard not to fall asleep.
The good news (knock on wood), he finally seems to be willing to sleep in his crib!!
