Party!

Today was Maddux's First Birthday Party. It was Goldfish themed and we had so much fun throwing it! Thank you so much to everyone who made it! We are so happy to have so many awesome friends and amazing family that live so close!

the general setup...here is the food spread. we had all of maddux's favorite foods: turkey dogs, mac n cheese, yogurt, string cheese, applesauce, and fish shaped sandwiches...maddux got sooooo many toys and cool gifts. we are feeling a bit spoiled at the moment. thank you to all!here is the progression of the cake eating...it went slowly at first, not too sure what to think of it....then he discovered he could do this....which then lead to this...we had a room set up in the back with all of maddux's favorite toys...each kid got to take home a goldfish as a party favor (some, who shall remain nameless...{*cough*lauren*cough*aubry*cough} chose not to take one). here is amirra super excited about her new pet...party favor...messy birthday boy...here are most of the girls who came. i am sad because we didn't take pictures until after a few people had to leave...(sorry rasmussens, goodmans and hansens)this is drew's side of the family...my mom and dad....
We love you MadDog!!

Thanks for inviting Amirra! We had so much fun at the party!!! Everything turned out so cute and I loved everything that you did for the party!

Amirra had her fish in her carseat all the way home, and sticking her fingers in it as well. Poor little fish! Don't worry about spelling my name wrong, I'm so use to it, with school and stuff back in the day, that it has grown on me. :) So no worries!!!

Thanks again for everything, we will have to get all three of you guys over sometime for dinner or games or something fun! :) I love the all pictures you took. :)

That was a great party!! I'm happy to report that Dorothy is still alive and well. We fed her tonight at bedtime and she seemed to be happy about it. We'll see what the morning brings. :) Thanks for inviting us, the kids had a great time. :)
