Elijah's First Birthday!

Our little pumpkin turned 1 on October 21, 2013. My mom came down from Iowa to celebrate, as well as we had a bunch of our Austin friends (second family ;)) over to the house for a fall birthday party. The weather was perfect. My mom and I had fun cooking and decorating for a few days leading up to the party. All-in-all, we had a wonderful party hosting 30 guests on a $175 budget!

The Menu: cupcakes, ginger spice cake, apples with fruit dip, fruit kebabs, beef and white chicken chili, and beer bread and corn bread
