I still haven't recovered from EIV's 1st Birthday party that we hosted last weekend.
It started the night before with the decorating of the cakes, cookies and cupcakes.
No Yankee-themed party would be complete without a few baseballs.
Here they are under construction:
And here they are completed:
One to destroy:
And one for the show:
And a field of baseball decorated cookies:
A team of cupcakes:
For EIV's sisters to decorate:
(Look good enough to eat, don't they??)
Then it was time for the cake smash:
But despite our efforts.....there was to be no smashing of cake.
EIV was not interested at all. Actually, he got pretty mad when I pushed his hand in the cake.
Next was the opening of the gifts. With big sisters ages 7 and 5, there was NO WAY that EIV was actually going to be able to open any of his gifts (which he did not). But he did enjoy the tissue paper party post-gift opening.
