Roll on by for some fun...

George is one!
 I guess it's time I finally post his party pics.  Be warned, it is picture overload!
 I so loved making each little thing for this party.  I am all about some DIY!
These pinwheels were so easy!  I used them all over.
The adorable invites were custom created by the talented Courtney Callahan.
The dessert bar
 Found this free printable sign here.  The stuff is amazing, and they are so generous.
The dessert bar included a homemade cake {courtesy of my fabulous mother!} with caramel filling, cake pops {courtesy of moi!}, salted caramel cupcakes, pecan tarlets, candy sticks and Twizzlers.  I am in love with how it turned out.

 For food I went with tortilla pinwheels, creamy salsa dip, marinated sandwiches, hummus, veggies and tomato tartlets. 
 How adorable are these mini wagons?

We did beer and water outside, but inside spiced cider with bubbly to add.
Can you believe my mom and I made this hat?  Again, courtesy of gaddie + tood.
 It's not a party for me without a favor. 
Of course I had to share the yummy Dulce Desserts cookies.
Adorable tags were another gaddie + tood steal as well.
We've been taking pics of G each month, and it was so fun to put them together for this banner.
 The beginning...
Cannot believe how much he has grown and changed.

The birthday boy welcomes his guests!
 For all the kiddos coming I made them their very own Radio Flyer licenses.  They were such a hit!
 Coloring station to keep the kiddos occupied.
 And of course favors for them!

G's adorable shirt was custom made by my talented friend Beth who launched Red Rover Kids.

Do you spy the book with G's face on it?  It is the most precious photo book made by my brother's adorable girlfriend, Alicia. 


G was not a fan of the hat.

Not too sure about all this...

Warming up to the idea of sugar...

He is now a fan of frosting.

One of the many highlights of the party was seeing this wagon filled with gifts for children less fortunate.  Our little man is so blessed, so we asked our friends to bring something for the kiddos at Preston Taylor Ministries.

The party was a huge success, and I was truly humbled by the outpouring of love from our family that traveled so far to be there and our community of friends here who came over to love on our little man.  Such an incredible celebration of the past year, which has truly been the most amazing journey of my life. 
Happy birthday, George!  You are so very loved by so very many.
