First Fiest Fun

Oh the 1st birthday craziness that Pinterest has ignited.  All I can say is that I am grateful that there was no Pinterest when I got married, b/c it would have made things too overwhelming.

I started thinking about H's 1st birthday about 2 months ago (yes, I am crazy).  Then the other day we sat down to make a potential guest list, and it was painfully obvious that more than half of our friends and family live 3+ hours away.  Combine that with the fact that we didn't want people to bring presents, and H doesn't really like stranger adults and we decided to skip the big First Fiesta celebration I was envisioning and go with a family only party.

So I thought I would share the idea I had with you guys, in case anyone wants to steal my theme.  Go ahead, I won't be mad!
