Watch out Blog Friends... The cat is coming out of the bag to talk about the birthday bash... we officially celebrated kiddo turning UNO! I'm going to let pictures do the talking in this post.
He officially hides from the camera now so this is the best I could do getting his Uno shirt... (oh and his dad had him wearing his tool belt!)
Weely photos from weeks 1-48...
We asked guests to sign in with there favorite memory from the past year... hoping to do that at all birthdays!
I made up cards for the food and such. This one for the party favors said that "he likes to sign 'please.' Kids-- please accept a little gift!"
I made an "UNO" fruit pizza as the cake for the big people.
My Father-in-law and baby boy share a birthday. So I made him a cake that said 71 and a shirt also announcing his age. ; )
Fruit bowl in "Uno" colors...
The birthday boys!
With all of the food I made signs like the one below... Around N's birth I craved Papa John's Pizzs with tomatoes and extra sauce!
Guests (and no this is not at my house-- it's a rented clubhouse.)
And this is pretty much how he wanted to be the entire time... in my arms or holding my hand. He was a bit overwhelmed!
I ended up going with the vanilla (reduced sugar) cake that I posted the recipe for. I surrounded it with bananas and put a dab of (melted) whip cream on top for a mess-factor. He LOVED it and cheered up a little after eating. I think that many people were a little too much for him. But cake helped make it better!
So that's it... the Uno party is over and the guy officially turns Uno on Thursday. Sniff.
