Birthday Party

We had Hudson's birthday party at our house this afternoon. It was SO much fun and Hudson did great! He was a little unsure of all the people at first, but he warmed up after a while. We were so lucky to have so many family members and close friends come celebrate with us. Thank you to all who came! You really made the day special!

On a side note, Hudson seems to finally be over the fever virus. His fever got all the way up to 103 (on Motrin and Tylenol) on Friday night before it finally broke and he woke up Saturday morning feeling better. It was a little scary because we couldn't get the fever down, but luckily he got over it fast! We were worried that we might have to cancel the party, but he seemed like he felt fine yesterday and today, he was even better.

Here are a few pictures pre-party. I used the brown and blue and polka dots theme again. You will not see me doing any more brown and blue, but I figured I needed to do it one more time to round out the year. It turned out cute, but I'm so done with those colors! Talk about overkill!

The food spread. We just did cake and ice cream, and a few dips. Nothing too much for a 3 pm party!

I put up his monthly chair pictures for everyone to see how much he changed each month.

This next picture is a bit out of order, but Joel's Dad MADE THIS ROCKING HORSE! Seriously, he made it. Isn't it AMAZING?!?! It is so special to us. I know that Hudson is just going to love it!

I made a book using Snapfish of Hudson's first year. I have been working on it for months and almost decided to just not do it because it was so time consuming, but I'm so glad I did. It turned out really great!

Cake time! Look at him eying that cake!

Wait a minute...we need to put the hat on him first!

Ok, NO HAT PLEASE! (For the record, I knew he hated the hat, but someone told Joel to put it on him and he absolutely threw a fit!)

All better now! Now, what is this stuff???

Ooohhhh yummy!

I'm having SO MUCH FUN!

Hudson made up for a week's worth of not eating with his smash cake! He couldn't get enough!

We decided it was time to call it quits before he made himself sick! This was the only family shot we got of the day.

After the smash cake mess, we got Hudson all cleaned up, opened presents (which, by the way, Hudson got a TON of great new things--thank you all so much!), and then we played and visited with everyone. It was so good to have all our friends and family in one place. It had been a while since we had seen everyone, and all the kids played so well together. The weather today made it all the better. We were outside for a good part of the party, and I'm pretty sure all the kids were out there the whole time! They loved it!

At one point during the party, I looked over at Hudson and he had decided to go find some more cake in his high chair! It was too funny! He ate all the crumbs that had spilled out!

My eater is back!

We got Hudson the wagon and a Pottery Barn chair for his birthday. We can't wait to use the wagon in this good weather! We did a little riding around the house tonight and he loved it.

Happy Birthday Hudson! What a fun day it was!
