Elijah's Balloon Birthday

Eli is ONE! I can’t believe it’s been one year, what an amazing year. I know more than anything you really just want to see pictures, so this will be short. We had Eli’s first birthday party at our church in the Children’s worship area- it was perfect. The only decorating I did was table cloths and balloons, our family had so much going on in the past three weeks that I ended up having to keep the party a lot more simple then I had planned, but I pretty happy with the outcome. My saddest moment was about an hour and a half through the party I realized the camera was on the wrong setting- so many of our pictures are blurry because of this- so sad but we still got a few good ones once I fixed it. We have had a week full of family and new adventures for Elijah- I will post pictures soon of our visit to the zoo and arboretum. Here are just a few of his birthday pictures. Sorry I am on the mac, and the pictures are on the PC. So I hope to have a little smile box slide show soon.

It was so much fun to make the balloon trees and banner, I wanted to find an inexpensive way to use all the balloons I found in our church garage sale and this worked perfect! I had so much fun decorating with the balloons I was sad to take them down. John's family helped blow them all up on Friday afternoon, it was so fun! My mom ordered the wonderful Batman cake you see below, it was so cute.
