Last weekend we celebrating my sweet boy's first birthday! As happy as I was for it I was super emotional believe it or not. I just cannot believe 1 whole year has passed. Some days it seems like he has been here as long as Ellison has and other days it seems we just brought him home. What a blessing he has been and I cannot wait for the many years of memories with our precious son to come!
On Saturday (after Ellison's last soccer game) we had five of our closest family friends come over to celebrate Elic's special day. Since we had 11 kid between us all we had to provide some entertainment :) It was a gorgeous day so we had our play set, a bounce house, bubbles, side walk chalk and just the great outdoors! The theme of Elic's first birthday was Little Monsters. I did all of the decorating myself (besides actually printing the items off the banners, etc. from the computer). I think it turned out SO cute...
These were the party favors...it was called "Adopt a Monster" :)
With little thank you notes that say "Thank you for the Wild Birthday!" ~Elic
Happy 1`st Birthday Elic!
