Emerson’s first birthday!

July 11, 2011

My sweet little man has turned one!!!  I can’t believe it, this past year has flown by…bringing all kinds of unexpected changes.  His party turned out fantastic, hubs and I have been working hard this past month prepping everything.  I made a barn out of two cardboard boxes & masking tape, painted a cow and a pig on a couple more pieces, S put up wooden pallets from the dumpster to make a “fence” and added the posts for me to hang the banners by (which are made out of burlap and cloth hot glued to twine, with happy birthday Emerson painted on).  My sister came over and we tackled the cake, it’s a little saggy but I think it turned out awesome!!  We had lots of friends and family to celebrate with us, the fun, the food, the homemade cake & ice cream, it was all wonderful.  Thank you to everyone to pitched in to help and to my friend Bobbie for taking pictures (which will be shared later in another post).

    The barn is adorable – it doesn’t even resemble cardboard!! And the cake – I can’t believe ya’ll made it, I thought maybe you’d had it done. It’s adorable!
