Happy First Birthday!

How are these two sweet boys already one year old? It feels so strange that I have been a mom for one year now. Time flies and it really makes me appreciate all of the time I get to spend with my babies as a stay-at-home mom. It truly goes by so quickly!

We celebrated the boys’ birthday a week early, since it was President’s Day and family members were able to fly out and spend more time over the long weekend than during their actual birthday weekend.

Folks flew in from Pennsylvania, Oregon, Texas and San Francisco to be with us. The theme I chose for the party was “Where the Wild Things Are” and I included a photo display of the boys’ monthly pictures from their first 11 months! It is so crazy to see how much they have changed!

For food, I ordered Hawaiian food, just because. We had kalbi (Korean-style beef short ribs), baked fish, rice, macaroni salad, another salad and spam musubi. Yum!

Of course, we had to have cake too, so I got a strawberries and cream custom cake and a two flavors of cupcakes!

I love how the cake turned out. It is Max’s king of the wild things crown from the book! So adorable.

We gave the boys their first taste of sugar for their birthday, and that was not a good idea. The boys had allergic reactions to something in the cakes and got sick. Hubby had to take little brother to the ER to get checked out after calling the pediatrician’s nurse line! The party quickly dispersed after that. Big brother’s reaction was a bit slower and he wound up getting sick too.

It’s all fun and games until someone winds up in the hospital. They just needed a bit of Benadryl and were okay. Thank goodness!

After the kids had some time to recover, we were finally able to open presents later that night. They got so much cute stuff!

Things did not exactly go as planned, but it will be a birthday party to remember.
