The Birthday Party

Surely I'm not the only mother out there that wore herself out planning her kids first Birthday party...all something they won't ever remember. I got on this kick a while back about wanting Cooper to have a Basketball Cake, like an actual ball, well 4th times a charm, I practiced this thing 3 times before last week, and with the help of my mother drawing the lines on it, it came out perfectly. All to be looked at by my son like you expect me to eat this? Over all I continue to be overwhelmed by the amazing generosity of our family and friends, Cooper has more toys then he will ever play with, so seriously, send you kids to my house, maybe the bubble truck won't make them cry. We were also so glad that some of Jeremy's family could come up for the big event. A huge thanks to my mom and dad for getting their house ready and keeping Cooper occupied while I decorated and for getting our son a car for his first birthday, he sure will be disappointed on his 16th! (Unless you'd like to buy him a car then too!) Also before the pics...
Dear Church League Basketball,
Next season please get your schedule right. Let the last game be scheduled at 1:30 like the printed, handed out, schedule says and not schedule my husband to play 3 games on the day of our son's first birthday party. Yes, I realize he could've missed his last game that started at 2:30 before his 3:30 party appointment, but seriously have you met my husband!
Thanks,
Michelle...sorry I had to get that one off my chest, and now for the slideshow!

Great job on the cake Michelle! It looks like everything turned out very good! I'm sure Cooper will appreciate it someday when he looks back at the pictures!

Good job on the cake! I did that too for Corban's party (made multiple cakes to perfect the actual birthday cake) and now Joshua makes me use Katie so I don't drive everyone nuts. Love the basketball pics!

That is awesome. I want another first birthday so I can dig in a cake like that again with no regrets! :)

SO CUTE!! Happy bday!

To answer your question...we tried MotoPhoto last fall for baseball pics, but they never scheduled a day to do them!! I was SO mad that we didn't get professional pics for that season. For the other seasons, we've used Milestone Photography--Jan Foisy. Are you thinking of doing baseball pics? We will use you!!!
