Maddox’s Sesame Street Birthday: the Party

Yesterday, I showed you all the decorations my sister-in-law Sommer and I made for my nephew’s Sesame Street-themed first birthday party, and today I’m back with pictures of the party and the birthday boy himself.

Mom, dad and the handsome birthday boy.

I managed to snap a few photos of people, but didn’t get one of every one. Unfortunately, Maddox came down with hand-foot-mouth syndrome (?? is that what you call it) a few days before and several of his daycare buddies caught it too so they had to miss the festivities.

Why yes, that fellow with the giant beard is my husband. Thanks for noticing. But seriously, the beard is out of control.

At one point we snuck the little man outside and I snapped a few family portraits.

Then it was time for presents

If you’ve ever been to a one-year-old’s birthday party, you know this is the standard gift scene. Mom and dad unwrap the presents and the baby is usually distracted by a box or random object. Always hilarious and adorable.

Seriously, how precious is he?

Maddox got a ton of great gifts. Although I do have to say the Sesame Street ball pit from Aunt Jessi and Uncle Jacob was totally the best in my opinion.

After presents we took a few family photos.

Pretty soon it was time for cake!

Despite almost sticking his entire face in the thing, Maddox had no desire to eat any of it.

He did, however, find it fun to smash in his hands.

After such a fun party, the little guy was pretty exhausted.

But I think that’s a sign of a successful party.

It’s so hard to believe that just a year ago, he was a tiny baby and now he’s practically running around.

Look at those teeth! So freaking cute.

Elmo Says – -Chase is Two

It seems like just yesterday we were driving to my friend Jordan’s house for her son Chase’s first birthday party. Which makes it that much harder to believe the little stinker is two years old already!

This past Saturday my friends Christine, Celia, Michelle and I made the same trip for Chase’s second birthday party (check out how cute baby Julianne looked)

Jordan threw an adorable Elmo-themed soiree, and just like last year Chase got a ton of toys.

My oldest and best friends. I’ve known these ladies since I was in junior high and love them to pieces.

Oh, yes. Jacob and I definitely bought Chase a giant crayon piggy bank.

It was a great party and after a really stressful week it was so nice to hang out and catch up with my friends. If I didn’t detest the word ‘besties,’ I would definitely say these four are my besties.
