YES. It was a tiny bit insane. But I "kinda" love to throw a party. And since we never had a baby shower with our friends we used this opportunity to celebrate our little dude.
I actually took pictures. LOTS AND LOTS of pictures (over 150!) so the good news is, some day Luke will know his mom threw him a killer party. Until then, I'm glad birthdays only come around once a year!
And some decorations hanging the night before the party:
|A comparison of the first diaper size to now|
|Superhero cape for each friend|
|And of course there had to be a phone book for the transformation to superhero!|
|Luke's own smash cake|
WHICH HE LOVED!!!!!
|Disclaimer: this isn't a picture of our cake, but it's what we sent to our cake lady. Who managed to do EXACTLY what we wanted! PRECIOUS!|
Here's some of the cute guests:
|The Guest of Honor, aka mini Bat Boy|
|Yay! Got a cute one by our photo booth (otherwise that would have been a complete bomb since the kids didn't want to stand still for a silly pic!)|
Case in Point:
The older boys and some of the daddies relocated to the game room for some fuseball...
The baking Queen (my MIL) loving on the guest of honor.
|Luke had a batman cape since I had a hunch there might be a REAL superhero showing up!|
And there was lots and Lots of catching up with friends and eating good food! I feel like as everyone was leaving I found myself saying "We miss ya'll! Can we get together soon please?!?!?" The thing is...I meant it with each and every one of these great friends. Now that we live in the burbs...and we have a
baby toddler...it's been so long since we've been able to have a big group over and we loved seeing every one of their sweet faces.
AND, you won't believe it, but look who showed up to surprise the Bday boy!!!
|(Daddy, you're such a good sport. I KNOW that was hot but you rocked it!)|
