Henry's first birthday was last weekend (where did the last year go?) and I actually got a little crafty for it. I made the banner above and I plan on reusing by removing the number each year. Actually, I have in my mind creating a cake with velcro'ed candles-- have to work that one out.
And to be completely over the top, I made each child a personalized towel for summer. The towels are just bath towels from Target and I appliqued their names on them. Most of the children were older (a one-year-old doesn't have any friends) and they really seemed to like them.
Oh, the birthday boy? I thought you'd never ask.
I'm off to Quilt Market in Minneapolis tomorrow. I think I'm going to have a good time. I have no obligations and I finally know a bunch of people that will be there. And with twitter, I'll be able to find them. (So if you want to avoid me, don't respond to my tweets!)
