Benaiah celebrated his first birthday last week and let’s just say, I’m exhausted from all the fun. 🙂 We spent his actual birthday celebrating as a family by going to Chick-fil-a for lunch, running a few errands for his big party, and ending it with breakfast for dinner!
Then, on Saturday, we had his big party! I decided to do a Curious George theme, because it’s one of Benaiah’s favorite shows, and he likes the books too. 🙂 I went a little crazy with the decorations, but I couldn’t help myself…I found WAY too many cute ideas on Pinterest so I had to incorporate them!
Two of my best friends came down that morning to help me set up everything. It would have taken me all day, but with their help, it only took a few hours. Here are a few pictures of the decorations right before the party started!
Then the party began! We had spaghetti (with whole wheat spaghetti and ground turkey), salad, bread (something VLCADD friendly 🙂 ) and delicious cupcakes made by one of my best friends who is a FANTASTIC baker! She even made a cupcake specifically for Benaiah that he LOVED.
And don’t forget the presents! Benaiah enjoyed “opening” his presents, but I think the other kids had more fun than he did 😉
It was a really great time spent with family and friends.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of his special day in one way or another!! We love you all!!
