One is Fun!

Anyone who has had the joy of raising a child understands the excitement of the first birthday party! It the moment when you gather family and friends and throw yourselves a big bash. Let's be honest, who is the party really for? I mean, seriously, Russ would have been just as happy eating a Sammy Jammy in his teepee; It was us, the parents, who were ready to celebrate!

Luckily I didn't have to brainstorm much since we have 2 themes built into our last name.
Batt= 1) Baseball party  2) Batman party *) Maybe for his 21st we combine the two

So, for his first shindig, we made Russ our lil "Batt"boy and a baseball theme it was. If you know us as a couple then you know that Evan and I have a different style of party planning.  I immediately set out and started to make decorations with construction paper and glue sticks. The kindergarten teacher in me allows me to think that anything worth having can be made with construction paper. Also, as most of you know, I'm cheap. Evan is the opposite. He immediately started to google hot dog, margarita, snow cone, frozen yogurt and cotton candy machines. It got out of control so fast, we didn't even know what happened. Luckily, we were able to compromise and the party turned out perfectly! We had a FABULOUS time and want to thank everyone for coming. It was a SPECIAL day for us and we will be sure to tell Russ that he had a good time (well for about 15 minutes of it.)
