a very hungry caterpillar 1st birthday

We celebrated Holden's first birthday.
I was so thankful for everyone who came that at times I almost couldn't hold back my misty eyes.
This was a big deal to me, just because of our family story.
Enjoy some photos!

Birthday cake and smash cake.

Ball Jars with jelly-bellies for favors.

kalamata olives, mozzarella, and tomato skewers

This onion dip {from The Barefoot Contessa} was the fastest mover at the party!

Look at my plate, mom!

He wasn't sure he should be touching his cake.  :-)

messy messy boy!

After his post-cake bath and outfit change he was ready to play with his presents!

Enjoy your Sunday.
