One Fish, Two Fish (We Threw A Party)

We had a little party over the weekend for Lincolns upcoming 1st birthday (it's not till Thursday). We did a One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish theme - the kiddos loved it!

I may have gone a tad overboard on the decor and goodies considering Lincoln doesn't really know its his birthday. But I know, and isn't the 1st birthday really for the mom anyway? Yes? I agree :).

Not to mention my little ladies had so much fun helping out, they had a blast.


He did great and seemed to enjoy all the festivities and company. I am over the moon for this kiddo, you may have picked up on that at some point over the past 12 months...


I ordered some things off of Etsy and I was thrilled with what I got. It was super cheap and super festive...2 things I thoroughly enjoy...


Of course we had balloons, Lincoln thinks they're hilarious. Although he looks a little afraid here...


We will be eating cupcakes for the rest of the week - no one is complaining...


Yes, you may reach in there and squeeze the party boy...


Another great idea I found online that ended up being price savvy were popcorn party favors. I went to the popcorn place at the mall and bought an embarrassing amount of red, blue, and yellow popcorn. Another thing that the kids thought were fantastic...


So that's a small glimpse of what we were up to in this neck of the woods. Can not believe that child will be 1 on Thursday. Is it ok if I talk about him a lot this week? Yes? Thanks.


Love him :).

Hope you had a great weekend!

Mama D’s Dozen said...

When, exactly, did he grow up? Wow!

Looks like a fun birthday celebration ... even if he didn't know it was his birthday ... or what a birthday is, for that matter.

Hope you all are doing well. I've gotten a bit behind on my blog reading, as I'm busy with 5 kids in spring sports.
