Birthday Party Time!

Here are so pics from Eli's 1st birthday party. We had our families, neighbors, and a few friends over, keeping it small since Eli didn't even know what was going on! It was a whole lot of fun and we have great pics and long lasting memories made!
Some of the decorations....I made a banner that had a picture from every month of his first year, I think it turned out pretty cute!
The CAKE!! It turned out even better than expected! I am already thinking about next year and a theme for his 2nd bday and can't wait to see that cake. Here is the website for the place where I got the cake, she is awesome!!
Ryan grilling for the party, mmmm!
Some of the friends at the party...
Brayden
Miss Baylee, Brayden's little sister
Miss Kinley, a few months younger than Baylee
Some of my favorite neighbors and friends!
Miranda, Steph and Amy
The boys playing, E had so much fun playing with the "big" boys...
I know you usually hand out party favors when you have a bday party, but I made goodie buckets for all the kids that came over so that they wouldn't be too bored. Since Eli doesn't have too many "bid kid" toys to play with I wanted them to have fun too. I filled their buckets with water balloons, silly string, sidewalk chalk, crayons, and a coloring book and some cute pezz dispensers! They seemed to love it all, and I was glad they had fun!
Presents...he had a lot of fun playing with all the paper and cards.....I guess that's a 1 year old for ya! He got some really cute clothes, and fun toys....thanks everyone for all the great gifts!
E playing with his uncles
Being silly with Aunt J
Eli had a little practice with the cupcake a few days earlier, but I think he might have been a little shy since he had a whole room of people singing and starring at him when cake time rolled around. He finally got into it and ended up stuffing his face and making a big mess...FUN TIMES!!
His Bday hat!
A family pic, the only one we took all day!

Time for a scrub down! We stripped him down and stuck him in the sink! He was so cute, must have been thirsty!
Clean, and happy baby!
Pics of all the fun the daddies and kids were having outside with the water balloons...
