On August 25th we celebrated Houston’s first birthday a few days shy of the actual with lots of family and friends – almost 50 people came to our home, a.k.a. the Roberts’ Ranch! We were blown away by each and every one of their presence that day and our hearts were full with the outflow of love for our little buckaroo from so many.
The day was nothing short of magical.
I will forever look back at this day with *extremely* fond memories. It honestly ranks right up there with the day he was born and our wedding day. I LOVED every moment and there’s no way it would have been possible without the most dedicated grandparents and aunts and uncles any little boy would be blessed to have.
Too bad Houston will never remember it, but that’s why there pictures – right?
The party started at 2 that afternoon and the friends began trickling in!
‘Happy Trails Mix’ for our guests.
Miss Bessie donated by my best gal, Houston’s aunt Ginny :)
I probably attached more than 200 balloons to this wreath for my baby boy’s big day. More on this craft soon!
The birthday banner I worked all week on and made my family make various morbid promises about…
Cowboy hats in kids and adult sizes, sheriff badges, Indian head dresses and stick on MUSTACHES for only the most fun guests ;)
His itty bitty cowboy boots and hat that he pretty much refused to wear – cute pic anyway!
Stick horses for the kiddies.
Simple tied together bandanas for a banner around the deck.
The cake and cupcakes were phenomenal looking AND delicious. If you’re in the Lexington/Georgetown area, Desserts by Rebecca was a dream to work with. Thanks, Rebecca!
My cousin, Kristen, approves.
My maternal grandfather, Ernie :)
The boy and his beloved Poppy.

Meredith brought a sweet little Indian to the shin-dig, Houston’s buddy, Mason.
This picture of my boys melts my heart.
