Leo the Lion Turns One!

Our sweet-pea Leo turned one last Saturday and we celebrated with family and friends at our home for a birthday brunch. I am a second child but I like to believe that I don’t carry the second child chip on my shoulder ;0) Despite that, I did make sure Leo’s birthday celebration was just as fun and festive as his brother’s just so there will be no dispute in the future! I know he won’t remember this day, but all those who came to support our family and celebrate our sweet little boy, thank you,we really appreciate you!

I tried not to go too crazy with the crafty decorations, but with a cute little lion theme, how could I not get a little crafty? Thanks to Pinterest, a little colored paper and a few design prints, we turned our home into Leo’s Little Birthday Lion Den. I do these things because I love it and it’s a creative outlet for me. Gino might call me a little nutty, but without having a little girl to make tutus for or to braid hair and paint nails, my boys will have to accept my urges to craft up their parties and things, ha ha – it comes with the territory of me being their Mama!

Yes, there were babies everywhere, literally, and I loved every bit of it. Thankfully my Dad was able to capture some really beautiful memories of Leo’s first birthday party, enjoy!IMG_9518
