I failed a bit as a mom for their birthdays because I had a lot of plans that didn't happen but hey it was a great day and there is always next year. The thing is we have a tiny (I mean really small) house and we could never fit more than another family in here comfortably. So instead of hosting the party here we had it at Pizza Hut (I know glamorous....lol). We had less than 20 people (us and babies included) but it was the perfect size and the boys did really well. Fynn had one minor meltdown but that is to be expected, he has never really liked loud noises and lots of people and this was both. Hudson loved every second of it and probably would have partied all night....lol.
I had ordered the boys custom made birthday shirts from Etsy but they did not arrive in time (you would think 3 weeks would be sufficient). I ended up getting them little bow ties from Gap and they looked adorable. I had planned to make the boys their first cake, I had literally planned it in my head for an entire year. HOWEVER, I have NEVER made a cake and apparently it is harder than it looks. Okay, I am a disaster in the kitchen. Luckily I had done a couple of trail runs for hubbys birthday and came to the quick conclusion that this year I would purchase a cake. It was delicious and it all worked out. I guess we will just have to do a home photo shoot with a cake smash when the shirts finally arrive.
Birthday Breakfast at home
First Birthday Cake the only thing I would have changed was I would have also ordered two smaller cakes/cupcakes for the boys with the messy icing to get the standard icing on the face first birthday picture.

Poor Fynn is done, the hat put him over the top :(
