The Fox of Jude-ly

The Fox of Jude-ly

I take pride in over-planning my children’s birthdays, but this year I just couldn’t get it together. I was worn out from work and it seemed like there wasn’t a magical weekend in July that everyone could attend and that would give me more time to plan. So, pretty much 3 days before, we decided to just invite Joe’s family over to the house and do a double July birthday (Fox and Jude).  I had dubbed it the “Fox of Jude-ly.”

Fox did spectacular. Of course, having a lot of people in the house at once was surprising for him, but eventually adjusted. He got to show off his walking skills and had his first birthday cupcake. He ended up taking a really long nap later in the evening, so we decided to take him to the fireworks show, and he loved it.

Food, pinatas, presents. It was a great day. Jude really enjoyed having his older cousins in the house to play video games with. As far as parties go, it was our most laid back. Of course, there was a part of me that wanted to make the cakes, and wanted to get really cute Etsy invites, and make some theme of the whole day, but I gotta learn to let that go. The important stuff all happened: spending time with family and celebrating the boys.
