Reid's First Birthday Party

While the big day is actually tomorrow, we celebrated Reid's first birthday with our family yesterday.

We had a ball!

That was the theme too. Reid loves to play ball, so we made a party out of it. We had ball pits, ball games, ball food, and ball presents. The biggest hit for the bigger kids was the laundry shoot. They much preferred to put the tin can telephone and other toys down the shoot rather than play with all of the toys in the basement or ball games we had set up. I'll have to remember that for next time. Maybe a laundry shoot party theme? Although I just asked Jack and his favorite part of the party was running on the deck outside of his room with his cousins.

Reid definitely enjoyed his party. He loved playing with his cousins and family. The ball pit was his favorite along with rides on the PowerWheels. He didn't quite understand what all of the singing was about, but he definitely liked it. Luckily Emmett blew out the candle; Reid wanted to touch it.

Since I was home this year, I had some fun making everything for the party from decorations to the cake. The cake pops were probably the most popular followed closely by the tomato mozzarella skewers.

Of course there are photos. So here they are are. Enjoy!

It was a really fun party!!! Our kids must have some of our genes because you can see the resemblance in Nicky and Reid. One day, a few generations from now, someone may think those two were brothers when they look at that picture.
