Partying like Rock Stars

we survived

On Saturday we celebrated the quads’ first birthday, Survivor style!!  Ok, not everything went according to plan, but I think everyone had fun and it was a success.  As the hostess, I wasn’t able to snap more than a couple pictures, but luckily a friend took my camera around to capture some of the fun.  Hopefully other guests took some great shots also, and will send the pictures to me!!  But here’s a little glimpse of the babies and some of the fun.

Here are the four guests of honor, sporting their awesome personalized shirts made by a fellow quad mom.  (Check out her Etsy shop Sweet Dumpling Boutique!). The girls also had tutus specially made by their Aunt Crystal (you can check out her handiwork on Facebook – see InspiredbyCourtney) This was the best I could do in the minutes before I brought them downstairs because once everyone saw them, there was no chance on taking a nice group picture!!!  The babies were all amazing at the party, and were more than happy to be passed around and to be entertained until bedtime!

We had a bounce house and an inflatable water slide, and despite the rain at the start of the party (it was POURING as I was putting tablecloths on the tables!) the kids could not get in there fast enough!!  Some even jumped in with their clothes on!

Here is the slide – the babies’ gift from their Grammy and Pappy – the day after the party

Here are some more pictures from the party:

One of the favors, filled with a beach ball, a fan, a tropical tattoo and a tropical stamper. Our infant-aged guests each got an Oball toy instead 🙂

We also had a chocolate fountain (thanks Aunt Kelly!) and a bunch of treats to dip… we couldn’t get a picture before everyone started digging in!

Oh and by the way, we had Famous Dave’s cater, and it was amazing!!!  Not to mention a reasonable price.  Go Dave’s!

Hope you all enjoy this glimpse into our celebration.  It was crazy, but I’m glad we celebrated their first year (our surviving the first year, I mean!) in such a big way.  Can’t wait to see what the second year has in store for us!
