Birthday Party Pictures - Part 2

We had SUCH a fun time at Nathan's first birthday party! My friend, Heather, gave me the idea for a candy themed party (she is SO creative - it's really inspiring!), so off to Sam's I went to try to find as much bulk candy as I could find. Rather than "goodie bags" for kids, everyone got to make their own goodie bag full of whatever kinds of candy they liked! We just did family at this celebration (and that mostly consists of adults), as we have a lot of extended family. We were so thankful everyone was able to join in celebrating this wonderful occassion!

The pictures from his party are below, but we warned, there are a lot! How do you choose just a few with a cutie like Nathan??? :)

Here are a few pictures of the decorations. The ADORABLE banner was made by one of my best friends (more like family), Amy. Unfortunately, she lives out in Colorado now so they were not able to be at the party, but she was so kind to make Nathan's banner special, just for his party. Isn't it amazing!?!?!

A few more decorations

And, the infamous candy table!

A few shots of the party goers

Time to open the presents!

Reading with Grandma (a favorite of his)! Please note the cheesy grin... this is the face he makes every time the camera would show the little orange light (right before the picture would take).

Time for cake!
