Warren's Woodsy 1st Birthday!

On March 3, my little man turned 1 - which hardly seems possible - and to celebrate, we threw him a woodsy-themed bash. It really helped to find such a perfect, rustic log cabin for our venue, but I also had fun making the decorations and, of course, the food. I wish I had gotten more pictures of the decorations - especially the monthly portraits of him that were hanging around the room and the cute wreath on the door, but I ended up spending most of my time hosting, mingling, and having fun. So I guess that's not a bad thing.

Camp food, including hot dogs, chili and cornbread muffins

S'mores - these were great because there was a beautiful stone fireplace in which to roast them

The cupcakes were little owl faces made with open Oreo cookies and Reece's Pieces

The original fabric is still folded neatly in my stash. *sigh* I must also confess that I finished this project about two months ago, but life has been crazy and my poor, neglected blog has been, well, neglected. Now, without further ado, here is Warren's new(ish) jacket:
