Let's Luau!

HaPpY 1st BiRtHdAy LaNdOn!

For Landon's first birthday party, we had a big Luau in our back yard! We had it decorated so good that sometimes I actually thought I was on the beach! Not really, but it looked great! I didn't get very many pictures of all the great Luau decorations, but hopefully you can imagine you are at your own Luau on the beach!

Here is all the food!

We had a little kiddie pool set up and we put a bunch of Luau rubber duckies in it and let them float around so the kiddies could play with them.

We decorated the waterfall, that Jared worked so hard on, fo soooo long (I'm glad he's done) with a Luau theme kit. It is used fish net draped along the fence, with starfish, sea shells, crabs and seahorses randomly placed on it. The left over crabs and lobsters were placed in the falls!

Some of our guests enjoying themselves. I say some because I know some of you would have my head if I put your picture on here!

We even had a special Luau dancer that did the hula on the beach!

Gifts! Landon did okay with this part, until he got his broom then I unwrapped the rest of them.

THE BROOM! Cake time! Landon wasn't real interested in playing in the cake, but we gave it another try. (He wasn't interested in my last post either) He pretty much just ate the Gold Fish crackers off the top of it.Some more of our decorations.
We had a HUGE authentic sand pile in the drive way to give an even stronger sense of being at the beach!

There were Hula girls greeting people at the door.

All in all, we had a great time. I really enjoyed hosting the big Luau party and I certainly hope the guests had as much fun. Thank you all for coming and for the great gifts you gave Landon. He loves them all. Everyday I am cleaning and re-cleaning the living room from his new toys!
A special thanks to:
for all the great decorations that supplied us with endless fun!

That was such a cute party. Your yard looked so nice. It's so crazy it's already been a year since we had those cute little babies. It's been so fun watching them grow up together. Happy Birthday Landon!

cute post! It was an awesome party. I loved the Hula dancer - I wonder if he knows he is on your blog. Hahaha. I agree with Ang I can't believe its already been a year.

Looks like you had a great party. The decorations were perfect. I can't believe he is already one. What a cute little boy! Is he walking yet? I heard you only work one day a week now - do you enjoy that? Hope everything is going well.

Hey Brandee this will be a fun way to keep up with your life. It looks like you had a blast! I can't believe your baby is one already. Time really does fly after high school. I can't wait to see you next week. Jan

How fun! I've been thinking of doing a luau for Gwen's birthday, even though it'll be September. Now I can get ideas from your blog!
