I am in league with probably every other parent here, when I say, I can't believe my baby is 1!
How did that happen, where did the time go?! This year has been a swell of emotion. I have found a whole new type of love in parenting;
it is instinctual, giddy and unwavering. I feel so fortunate to get to be a mama and while I never want to wish away a moment, I get so
excited about all that we get to show Hen in this life.
Now for the party, we went a bit kitschy and put together a lumberjack bash, this was such a fun theme! I will probably not do anything big again until he knows what's going on and can choose his own type of party. A year milestone could not go by though without a celebration and luckily many of our nearest and dearest family and friends were able to attend in the midst of the holidays. Here are the few pictures I managed to collect in the craziness:
Crescent Wrapped Hot Dogs
Mac & Cheese
Hot Cocoa Bar
-Homemade Marshmallows (Chocolate, Mint, Vanilla)
-Butterscotch and Mint Chips
Stump Smash Cake
