Luke's 1st Birthday Bash!

We celebrated Luke's 1st birthday last month. What a great day! It wasn't as sunny as we would have wished, but the sun was shining inside with all 30 of us!! At one time I counted the number of people in our small kitchen alone....21!! As in twenty-one PEOPLE! It was a hoot! The night before the party my niece Sami came over and she, Tyler and I made some really neat cupcake cones.

You just use cake mix and instead of putting it in a pan, you place it in ice cream cones and bake it! It's so neat! And FUN to decorate too. As you can see, we had some fun! Thanks Sami~~you're special to me!

Gettin' creative!

The finished product! I placed two cake plates on top of each other and arranged the cones all around.
It was a colorful party, with lots of candy and rainbow fishes....Luke's "cake" was made from four little brownies, each one had a letter of his name, it turned out pretty neat. (and those are candles in the shape of crayons!)

Luke loved his special treat.
He wasn't so sure at first,
but as time went on he and the cone
got to know each other very well!
Some of our friends gathering down at the gazebo.
Here's a taste of our kitchen gathering! 10 people in this shot! Luke was a bit overwhelmed!
Here he is opening the gift from Grandpa & Grandma Beiler and Grammie Stoltzfus....
