Somehow I managed to miss posting photos from Caleb's 1st birthday party (which was almost a month ago)..so I think I'll remedy that today. What's a party without balloons!
Grandpa and Gramma got Caleb a shopping cart full of goodies...including a cute, green alligator. All my grandbabies have a special animal. Alligators belong to Caleb.
Aunt Jo planned a fun craft.....what little girl doesn't love beads. Charlotte and Penelope filled little bottles with the beads and then decorated the bottles to look like fish. I don't have a photo of a finished one but you can see Jo's inspiration here.
Caleb got to join in the fun too! Step 1) Put white paper in covered box; Step 2) coat marbles with paint: Step 3) Put marbles in box; Step 4) tip box back & forth and side to side.
Results - ARTWORK ready for framing!
I loved the crafts Jo prepared and so did the kiddos!
Pool time was fun and these "spongy things" were a huge hit! Jo made them and the kiddos loved them!!
Caleb liked his shopping cart and he also REALLY liked the blanket that I made him. I had enough fabric left over to make two small matching blankies. Every one year old needs a couple travel blankies!
How about a school of fish swimming in a number one! Jo made these too...one "scale" at a time. I think these are so cute and they were tasty too!
The party was Bubble Guppie themed...Great party Jo!
I love you sweet Caleb!
