My friend Lisa made this cute birthday banner. I wanted to do something with the mantle but ran out of time. I was thinking maybe putting his monthly pictures would be cute but oh well.
We grilled chicken, steak and shrimp kabobs. They were all good but the shrimp were delicious! I got the recipe here. Look for sweet and spicy honey shrimp. I haven't figured out how to copy the whole link.
I made stuffed bleu cheese potatoes, also from the above site. Even those who dislike bleu cheese loved these!
I made these cookies sort of at the last minute. I do not love how they looked but they tasted good.
I dipped some pretzel sticks as well and they were a big hit. Other goodies included pigs in a blanket, chicken nuggets, fruit and veggies and a cheeseball and crackers.
I found these colorful sodas at Walgreens. I was planning to buy some blue cream soda as well but for some reason decided to wait until the day of the party and the store was sold out.
Ms. Honey came to see Reed and celebrate with us. She brought her granddaughter Austin, too.
After gifts it was time for cake!
He started out slowly, just taking teensy bites.
But pretty soon he demolished his smash cake!
We had a wonderful time celebrating Reed's first of many birthdays. We are so blessed to have this little man in our lives! His birthday is also our wedding anniversary. I can't think of a better way to celebrate our marriage than the birth of our son!
