Somebody's One!

As crazy as it seems to me, our baby boy has completed a whole sun cycle!
This year has been the biggest oxymoron.  It was the longest year of my life, and yet, it seems to have flown by.  Being this boy's Mama is such a blessing, but in the most different ways I could have ever imagined.  Cole has been, from the start, the kind of boy who keeps you on your toes.  Never content to just hang out and snuggle, he lives life to the fullest in every sense of the word.  He takes "no" as a suggestion, and has eaten a wider variety of foods (and non foods) at the completion of his first year than our 7 year old has in his lifetime.
This baby boy is not the "perfect child" that my oldest is in terms of behavior, caution, and savoir-faire.  But he certainly is the "perfect child" in terms of gumption, daring, and assertiveness.  Nothing will hold this boy back from life.  He simply must experience it all. 
We thought it would be perfectly fitting to have a wilderness themed first birthday, because well, our boy is nothing short of wild!

The cutesy, Forest Friends decor is from Hobby Lobby, as is the cupcake stand (which was white before we made it a tree by painting it brown). The metal C and metal chalk board bins I scored from Michael's for 70% off! The pine garland and pine scented candles are also from Michael's.  The other trays and bowls I already, and I thrifted that awesome candle that looks like a log, the rustic green table (8 bucks!!) and the wooden tray.
The Menu:

Woodland Berries
Teddy Grahams
Goldfish Crackers
Pretzel Rods (Deer Twigs)
Cheetos (Campfire Flames)
Banana Chips (Chipmunk Chips)
Brownie Bites (Bear Poop)
Pigs in a Blanket
Chocolate Cupcakes
Pumpkin Bread (Fallen Log)
Scones
S'mores station with ingredients to get your S'more on!
We also had a bonfire and roasted marshmallows for S'mores!  
As usual for 1st birthday parties, much more than the gifts, the big hit was the wrapping paper!!
