Birthday Party Number 2

We celebrated Oliver's birthday with a sports themed party at our home. We spent the day eating ball park themed food and beverages! From the pictures below, you will see that everyone wore their favorite sports gear (there was a prize for the most spirited) and were so gracious towards Oliver with such generous gifts! He is definitely a spoiled little boy. We are working on our manners, but haven't yet mastered the sign for thank you. I think by the looks of the smiles when he saw a new gift was his thank you!
Mommy wearing IU, Daddy wearing Purdue and the birthday boy wearing PU. It was almost unanimous about the Purdue jersey. I am a minority around here with all the Purdue people. I agreed ONLY because the jersey had a appropriate number 1 on it!

Kim wearing the Steelers adn Bob wearing a Purdue jersey with his hockey pads underneath. Yes, those are black painted bandaids under his eyes! GO BOB!

Dave wearing Michigan and Katie wearing the Colts head to toe.....literally! Note the presents are decorated with cream and crimson ribbon and black and gold ribbon! Katie is so crafty!

Amanda in Steve's jersey, Maya wearing her cheerleading skirt and a Purdue jersey, Ryan wearing his Colts jersey and Steve wearing his jersey. Amana has eyeliner under her eyes! What creative partygoers!
Ryan wearing Michigan State, Jackson wearing Michigan State and Claire wearing a basketball necklace!
Matt wearing IU, baby Joseph, and Jessica wearing Michigan State.
Larry picked up all the balloons at the party store. The balloons placed around the deck are in the colors of the partygoers colleges! It just added a special touch!
We had to remind Oliver that was only 1 not 21! Just another 20 years to go buddy! Maybe Ryan can show you how to deliver a beer in another year! Ryan will walk around asking everyone if they need a beer....regardless of your get one!
Soccer decorations
Basketball decorations with Maya! She loved the stars!

The table all decorated. We served hot pretzels, hot dogs, brats, nachos/fritos with cheese and chili, peanuts, cotton candy, and big league chew!

These are the cakes and cupcakes that I made! Oliver's cake is the soccer ball and the pennant is the cake for everyone else! Oliver LOVED the helicopter that Amanda and Steve got him. We kept trying to get him to open more presents but the toy kept making noises and would grab his attention.
Everyone enjoying the party.
A book! There is always time for one of those! He absolutely loves to read!
STANDING! He can stand by himself for quite some time now. It is amazing to me that is his able to do these things. I am going to blink and he is going to be running soon. What a wonderful birthday party! We thank all of you who came to share in the special day with our little man! We appreciate all the things that you have done for us and for Oliver this past year! We look forward to many more memories with all of you!!!!!!
