Remember last year when my cousin Monique shocked everyone (including herself!) when she gave birth to a baby boy! It was one of those "I didn't know I was pregnant" stories that could have been on the show! Well that little baby boy turned 1 year old over the weekend and his parents threw him the greatest party on earth. Every single detail was amazing. My cousin Monique really pulled out all the stops, she planned for months and Mr. Mathme had the most amazing circus themed birthday party ever!
There were a bunch of carnival games and each kid received a prize each time they tried each game!
There was a face painter, a henna tattoo artist, a balloon maker and of course a bouncy house! Phi and Louie had an amazing time.
The tables were set with decorations and adorable centerpieces of popcorn containers filled with lollipops and pictures of the super adorable Mathme!
There was a photo booth and a cardboard cutout for even more photo ops!
The pinata was an adorable lion. Before the pinata each kid was given a box already filled with toys and candy.
There was an great taco guy with tons of good food, and a dessert table filled with tons of candy, popcorn, peanuts, cookies, cupcakes, rice krispie treats and an amazing cake!
What I really loved was seeing and feeling how loved this little boy is, by everyone there but especially by him Mom and Dad. I have never seen my cousin Monique so completely happy and in love like she is with her baby Matthew. And Chris is such a proud Daddy. He opened all the gifts and oohhed and ahhed over every single one.
The love and attention that Niques and Chris shower on Mathme is so obvious. You can feel it when you are around them. And it shows in Matthew. He is the happiest baby around. Content and safe and loved.
Mathme, you were the biggest and best surprise this family has ever received. You are a gift and we are so happy and lucky to be your family. We love you so much and are so happy we got to celebrate the big "1" with you!
