Paxton was born 12.14.12 I thought the Winter ONEderland theme would be perfect! I fell in love with the idea right away. I planned out his party for 6 months. All the hard work and love I put into it was so worth it and the day couldn't have been more perfect. We had a white out that day and although some people from a little further away couldn't make it due to the weather conditions, it still couldn't have gone any smoother. We hired a photographer and I had a shirt and hat personalized just for my lil man. He enjoyed every second; Especially the cake!
Paxton eating his smash cake and in general being around all the people that love Paxton so much. I also loved that we had a total white out. It made the Winter ONEderland come to life.
The whole time Paxton was eating his cake, he just kept saying..mmmmm
Most Touching Moment
My great grandfather died in 1991 and I was left his wallet with $30 in it. I never wanted to just spend it. I was 12 when I received it. I decide later in life that when I had my 1st child, I would buy something for it with his money and my child would have a gift from his deceased great great grandfather. So, I had something made and engraved for him in Italian and personalized it from my papa and when I showed my grandparents it, they were very emotional. I cried my butt off when I actually had to hand his money over to pay for it. I really...reallly....cried hard. the lady at the counter looked at me like I was nuts and I tried to explain to her the best I could through my sobbing. it was so bad that my husband said, let's just pay for it ourselves and you keep the money but I held my grounds and did it.
the man of the hour, of course.
Red velvet cupcakes and hot chocolate cupcakes with a peppermint icing and peppermint stick in it. Marshmallow ice cubes, chocolate covered nutter butter reindeer.
stuffed animal penguins and isolated mugs that were from the hot chocolate.
Activities / Games
I didn't want to miss out on anything that I thought we had to have or that would make it perfect. That's why I started planning it 6 months in advance. I didn't want money to be an issue. And although I know there are way more expensive 1st birthday parties, I thought that his turned out just the way I had in my mind.
