Happy First Birthday Tred!

 This is Tred Michael Collins. My favorite 1 year old on the planet. True Life

His mama and I became friends in college, she is one of my dearest friends in this world.



Yesterday was his "real" first birthday, but we celebrated it on Saturday.


NOT only did I get to celebrate with the cutest one year old on the planet but I got to spend the weekend with two of my other BFF's, Stephanie(L) and Katiebeth (rR). Sadly we were missing one GREAT piece of the commune, Tory!
(yes, we call ourselves a commune… its a long story) 


Amy planned the most wonderful "Cardboard Box" Themed party… it was AMAZING!
She decorated with orange and cardboard color, to say it was perfection was an understatement.

 Tred SUPER CUTE cardboard fort cake! 


Sweet Sweet Family!! 



so obsessed with paper straws!!



Great cardboard accents!







The kids ran around, painted and had a grand old time playing in the cardboard city! Such a great party!!


I haven't been to a First birthday in FOREVER so I forgot how WONDERFUL the
 cake smash event is.
Words will not do… so i'll leave it to the pictures
KB wanted to cake smash too...



I mean really? I'm obsessed. If my kids aren't this precious, happy and hilarious I am sending them back. 


Our first picture with Little Bit Collins #2

Precious friends + a wonderful one year old= a smashing party

Hahah this is so stinking cute!!! I love the cardboard theme and I love that you call him your future ring bearer. I totally have my future flower girl chosen. Glad you got to have a fun day with your girls and the sweetest little boy.
