the ONE party....

I was going to wait until after party #2 to post pics, but I know some family members are waiting to see them, and since we're still waiting for the 2nd party, here's what we had so far!
our guest list involved 32+ people, so that's why we ended up with 2 parties. On his actual birthday, we had a chance to gather with good friends and several of our neighbors, who we've barely seen since warm weather! It was a wonderful time to be all together and we appreciate how kind they have all been to Graham! Party #2 is his "friend party" and will involve a few more little people!

I don't think you always have to have a theme, but for the last few months, I knew that since G loves all things BALL, it was an easy choice! I figured he would have the most fun surrounded by balls, and he did! This borrowed ball pit was a huge hit!

favors...(balls, of course!)
carrot cake was my compromise in actually letting him eat cake. :) I was going to let his go un-cream-cheese frosted, but I received too many cries of meanest mother ever!!!
you CAN tell it's a baseball & tennis ball, right?????????????

notice he's going at it frosting-first!
and yes, he did eat every last crumb. Not that there was any doubt that he wouldn't!

a very special apron, made by his great-grandmother Hughes!

So , needless to say, we all had a ball!!
(I had to say it, right?)
