How Sweet it is!

-To have friends and family like ours!

Yesterday we hosted Eli's 1st birthday party at our house and were blessed to celebrate with 25+ of our closest friends and family. Our house is small, it is not fancy, there weren't enough seats, but let me tell you; it was bursting at the seams with love. We have, hands down, the best family and friends anyone could ever ask for!

Have I mentioned lately how blessed we are?

We celebrated in style with chili and hot dogs. We ate cake and opened gifts. We exchanged MUCH witty banter :) Because our family is not only wonderful, they are funny as all get out! (Especially me and Jodi... We're funny girls! You should hear our elephant joke "shtick"!)
And of course the day wouldn't have been complete without my brother-in-laws "roasting" things over the fire! I WISH that I had a photo of Brett getting a shot of hot gourd juice right in the face!

The day couldn't have been any better and we're oh-so thankful!

Here are some of my favorite photos of our little one's special day!

  1. Umm, Aunt Sara is pretty pumped she made it into the blog! AND that somehow she got sleeping Eli time. Great party, Steph. You are the most wonderful mom in the world! I'm really proud of you. I hope I can be as good a mom as you :)
