Simon's First Birthday Party

 Simon's first birthday party was Saturday.  We decided on a smurf theme months ago, and it came together really well.  But, it was hard getting motivated to start the planning.  I'm really having a tough time with him turning 1.  It just doesn't seem like he that old already, and I am a little sad.  Okay, maybe more than a little.  I am sure grief has played its own role in it all also.

Anyway, we had a really wonderful time with everyone who came.  I am so grateful for the friends and family who have surrounded Simon with love. 

Here are some pictures.  It was hard to choose from the over 250 that were taken from 3 different cameras.

 The snack table. 

 The veggie tray.  I love this one! The mushrooms are radishes.
 Simon's smash cake.  Dru rocked it!!

 And his cake.  Love it too!

 I have to share the wonderful artwork my husband did.  And I am really enjoying our chalkboard wall.
 Simon taking his first swing at the piñata that Willy built. Yes, I have a crafty husband.
 Simon trying to get into his new Cozy Coupe from Grandpa Tim.
One of so many picture of Simon and his tongue sticking out.
I love the look on his face here.  He actually snuggled with the outfit when I was taking the tags off.
Ripping open a present....again with his tongue out.

Clapping at himself for a job well done.

Riding the train Grandma Dru and Grandpa Mike bought him.

I was really surprised how little of a mess he made. But he is pretty serious about food and probably just didn't want to waste any of it.

And this is the idea that really started the smurf theme for his birthday.  Great shot, grandma!!
