I've loved reflecting back on his first birthday and on this past year, as I see how much he's grown, changed, and developed more into the person he was created to be! I love him more every day! It was such an honor to celebrate his life and remember what a blessing from the Lord he is! Here are some pictures of the celebration!
After his nap, we headed to Grandma's house, who was hosting the big party that night! With the baby coming, I wanted to make the party as simple as possible, which included involving others' help! I chose to do a Cars theme, which seemed to revolve around Disney Cars. Like Laura, I'm not a big fan of character themed parties, but I knew Titus would love it, and I was went pretty basic with it! I decorated mostly with Reds and Blues, and threw in a little of the Cars theme here and there. The cupcake tower was my main tie to the theme. I made the little toppers out of Cars stickers, cardstock and toothpicks. The main topper was designed and printed by Tim. I loved that when I finished it, it looked like a billboard. I had a table of desserts and drinks (cupcakes, mint brownies and plate of cookies a grandma brought) and then the island was filled with lots of yummy appetizers my mother in law made or had others bring.
Ready to party! :)
I also had Laura make Titus a shirt to fit theme! I loved that he matched his party! Thanks, Laura!
The birthday boys! (Tim's was the day before!)
He knew just what to do with the presents this year! He didn't need an coaxing from Mama! :) I loved to see his excitement!
We practiced blowing out matches, so that he would successfully blow out his candles! And he did amazing! :) So proud!
Yay for using forks now! :)
A not-so-great picture of our family! :) Happy Birthday, Titus!
