Happy Birthday party Little Elvis!

Little Elvis celebrated his first birthday today with friends and family. He must have sensed this was an important day and went down for morning nap - an hour and a half morning nap, thank you very much!! So on a day where he received several presents, he gave us a great one as well.
First off, some bragging:

Yes, we made two teddybear cakes (which I frosted) and teddybear sugar cookies. My mom did the eyes and nose, and had to put up with my criticisms while doing it. She also helped us clean, AFTER putting up with my icing insults. Pretty nice, no?

Little Elvis seemed to enjoy his first taste of chocolate and refined sugars at the party. He didn't make the mess we anticipated, but was pretty entertained with the process of eating a piece of cake. Of the two, he preferred the cookie to the cake.

Overall, we all had a great day. Little Elvis did a really good job sharing his toys and playing with the other kids at the party. He got tired at the end of the day, but I think he really enjoyed himself.

The preparation was stressful, but that's because we decided to make two cakes. We wanted to have a back up in case I messed up the first one. We now have a cake in the freezer to be popped out the next time we're craving something sweet -- other than our Little Elvis, of course!

Happy birthday party day, my little sweet angel.

Awww, nice job! We have that same 1st Birthday centerpiece thingie too. Our party will be just us - we're too far from anyone to make it bigger, but he'll know just how loved he is when I let his sister loose in the toy department tonight to find something for him for his birthday LOL

Great pictures! Sounds like a wonderful party. And I am so impressed with Little Elvis' neatness, my two had cake EVERYWHERE (like their ears, for example) on their first birthdays.
