Hudson’s First Birthday

Hudson’s 2nd birthday party is this weekend. I cannot believe he will be two already, time flies when you are having fun. We are doing it early this year, his actual birthday is on Thanksgiving day so we had to plan to do it a little earlier. It will be a regular thing for the rest of his life every few years it will be on Thanksgiving. For me I would love it, tons of food and football pretty good birthday if you ask me.

Hudson is obsessed with trucks, trains and planes, anything that rolls or flies. So we decided on an On-the-GO party. I think he will love it but get mad that I am using some of his toys as decoration…..he will just have to deal. But first I wanted to share pictures and decorations from his 1st Birthday, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.


All the decorations I made myself using a Cricut, I borrowed from a friend. The cake was made at Plum Cakery. They do custom cakes, my friend from High School made it and will be doing this years cake as well. .

I was IN LOVE with Hudson’s cake, I could barely cut into it. It was so tasty too.

The Cricut, made making all the signs very simple once I figured out sizing and the right way to type in the codes. I loved how the signs turned out. I couldn’t buy anything that wasn’t cheesy. I wanted it to be cute without looking ridiculous.

Any who, the other sweets are Pumpkin bars, a family recipe. The chocolate cupcakes are a boxed recipe and mini Oreo’s for ears. We served two different types of chili for the adults.


My grandma, Hudson’s Great Grandma, insisted she get him a cake of his very own. She was so happy to give it to Hudson to make a mess with. And He did not disappoint, it did take him a minute to dive in but once he did he had fun.

Hudson did not do great with unwrapping presents he only wanted to play with the tissue paper or box, typical One year old right?!

All in all we had the BEST time with his first birthday. Its a bittersweet moment am I right. I spent the whole time hoping for him to get older so he would sleep or talk or crawl. Then BAM! First birthday.


Word to the wise, just enjoy each second and every milestone. They will go flying by. Now onto my sweet boys 2nd Birthday….tears will fall I promise you.
