Happy Birthday Jude & Sloane!

Linking up with Twin Talk today and sharing Jude & Sloane's 1st Birthday Celebration!! They turned one on October 30, 2013.  Enjoy! :)

----

Jude and Sloane's birthday party was so much fun (ignore the fact that it was two months ago)!

I kept everything fairly simple because 1) I am not crafty and 2) We're on a budget.  We invited quite a few people thinking no one would come because 1) It was a Saturday during football season and 2) It's a birthday party for two very small children.  However, almost everyone replied yes (cue temporary anxiety attack from yours truly).  It meant so much to me that so many friends were a part of their special day.  I will be the first to admit that many of Jude & Sloane's gifts were immediately packed away and then moved under the tree to be re-opened on Christmas.  Don't worry, we told them who gave them each gift (unless they really loved it and then we took full credit). ;)

The (loosely-based) theme was "Early Bird Birthday Brunch" and I'll let the pictures and side comments tell the rest of the story.

 I miss having that many donuts in our home.

They each had a Happy Birthday book for guests to sign.

Party favor: Gummy worms ("The early bird catches the worm")







We never got a picture with everyone but this one had quite a few.

She had absolutely no interest in her cake.

My brother flew down for their birthday.  It meant the world to me!

I don't wanna be anonymous but I don't have an account on any of the options. I'm gonna say something despite if that: wonderful birthday decorations. Everything looks so yummy and pretty! And I am happy for you that so many people came. Just one question: does 11>12:30 mean that guests were invited within that time frame/ for 1 1/2 hours? I've never seen this way of telling guests when to come lol so just being curious.

Hmm... It looks like you photoshopped a giant bald spot on the top of my head!

Oh, who am I kidding... Actually, I'm a bit disappointed that amongst all the goings on, I failed to sign their guestbooks. How sad!
