Happy Birthday, Pate Man!

Saturday, we went to our sweet friend, Pate’s 1st Birthday party!  Pate’s mommy, Michele, and I work together.  Just a little over a year ago we were both big and pregnant and counting down the days to delivery!  Pate took his time and came a week late on July 31st, and Elliott came 2 weeks early…sorry Michele, doctor’s orders!  Technically, their due dates were nearly a month apart, but their birthdays are only 2 days apart!  Michele, did such a great job planning the party!  The party was in the morning so we chowed down on delish breakfast foods!  Yum!

The theme of the party was puzzles….there were puzzles everywhere!  The invitation that came in the mail was in pieces and we had to put it together to find out the details!  There were puzzles to put together on the floor and gigantic puzzles pieces with Pate’s baby pictures hanging from the chandeliers.

Elliott had the best time in the bounce house!  He loved it when the older kids would jump and bounce him around.  Silly boy.

The bounce house was a first for Elliott, and so was the sandbox!  I was shocked when he didn’t try to eat the sand!

Everything was adorable…including the birthday boy!  I’m sad to say that my camera died before Pate got his cake (big sister, Aggie, helped him blow out the candle!)  Thanks for having us, Pate!  We sure do enjoy having you as our friend!



  1. Thanks for the sweet post. We are so looking forward to celebrating Elliott’s birthday. Pate and Aggie are blessed to have such a friend (and their Mommy too)!

  2. Tricia,
    Happy Belated Birthday! I just love your blog! 28 is going to be an amazing year for you – may God fill it with unexpected and joyful blessings.
