Hudson's Birthday Party

We celebrated Hudson's birthday last Saturday.  We had it in Indiana to try and help our families out with driving.  My goal for Hudson's Party was to try and keep it relatively simple since I had to make and plan everything here and then travel to Indiana for the actual party.
Happy boy with his cake
Brian made Hudson's smash cake.  I think he did a great job. 
I was really impressed with his skill- who knew?.
Brian's mom made a chocolate and a vanilla cake for everyone to eat.  They were really yummy. 
I kept the food really simple - finger sandwiches, either ham or chicken salad, cheese, and cake.
I put Hudson in his highchair for presents because I knew he probably wouldn't sit still -  Poor Hudson - his pants are a little too short and look even worse when he was sitting down.  He has a really skinny waist and needs 6-9 month pants, but the length is just too short.
He is obsessed with phones right now.
Singing Happy Birthday to Hudson
At first Hudson was very delicate with the cake and only eating the icing.  He ended up with a major sugar buzz and didn't fall asleep until about 10:30 that night.

Dave, Noel, and Elise were able to make it to the party - it was so good seeing them. We missed seeing Beth, though.  Noel and Elise drew Hudson special pictures

So happy to have Josh, Julie and Kaitlyn at the party
So thankful that Melissa and Michael were able to come

So..thankful for great family and friends!  Also, so thankful for Hudson!  He has been such a sweet blessing this past year.


  1. That first birthday is so very special! Happy Birthday to your little guy!

  2. Hi. Barely catching up. I still have so many boxes to unpack but I'm tired and need a break.

    Mmm, I would have loved to have a piece of cake! Hudson looked so cute stuffing his face with cake :)

    What sweet memories.


Thanks for leaving me a message! Many Blessings!
