a little party

I may have mentioned there was giant little party this weekend.

See, a year ago there was a  most special little guy born. He wasn’t expected to live very long. Doctors told his parents so many things that he wouldn’t be able to do-one of those things was he wasn’t going to be able to breathe on his own. Praise God, there was a HUGE miracle and the little guy defied all odds. Time after time. He is a little breathing, smiling, giggling, sweet, little miracle.

So we had a rather large party to celebrate that fact.

and to thank everyone who has given his momma and daddy so much. to give everyone a chance to celebrate the little guy too.

You can find more of the details on the little ONE year old’s blog. But I thought I’d share some of the pretty little details that we’d worked on for the past few weeks.

The theme was “O’s”(for O-wen). So we went with a lot of Owls. All the food was little O’s. the decorations were O’s. Man- even the TP was o’s. HA. jk. but,  it was fun to see  how many O’s we could come up with. 🙂

please enjoy some of the little details before the party got started:

these large posters were actually really cheap! We of course learned the secret on Pinterest from this link.large imagesowlpoof2

some of us had to sneak some food before everyone showed up:: (getting things ready was tiring!)getting food

I am so in love with this O face garland:o treats(also found on pinterest)owlpoof3

I love how sweet this picture of Momma and birthday boy getting ready for the party::

and of course, a fleet of owl cupcakes:owl cupcakes

I think my favorite part was the photo booth. 🙂 we had props, hats, crowns, masks, harry potter glasses and even boa so that everyone could dress up and get their picture taken! This way, we can compile all the pictures into an awesome photo book to enjoy for years to come 🙂photobooth2

all of the rest of the photos from the party can be/will be found on Owen’s blog. I haven’t seen all of them yet. But so far, this one with Sharon is my favorite::

Happy 1st birthday to the most popular, sweetest, most loved little guy I know!
