Now, onto the fun stuff...
Back in October, we started to discuss plans for Logan's first birthday. We threw around a few ideas but quickly came to the conclusion that we would love to have it at our new house (a lot of our friends had not been over to see it yet) and we wanted it to have a Robots theme.
I knew, with Halloween and Thanksgiving, that his party was going to sneak up on us so I made a list of all the ideas I had for the party, food and decoration. With that list, I made a long 'to-do' list with tasks for each week. (This is what I did for my wedding.) I got a little excited about decorations and activities for the day so I prioritized them and started with the most important. I'm a very "do it yourself" crafty type of person (my mom used to teach art) so I have learned that things always take longer than you think they will. We didn't even get to half of the decorations on my list... but that ok!
(The Mini Trampoline hiding in the corner was our big gift to Logan and has been a huge hit.)
Veggie tray and dip
Chips and dip
Homemade applesauce and animal crackers (for the kids)
Baked brie in a puff pastry with crackers
White Chicken Chili
I definitely wanted to have a cake smash for his party. We had our cakes made by Triolo's Bakery and they did a wonderful job on them. (They even gave us his cake smash for free)

I can't believe we have a one year old! Tell me time slows down now...
