Thanks everyone! The party turned out great, but wow I'm glad it's done with! It was so much work and so many people it was a madhouse! DH's aunt showed up early while I was still trying to finish cooking, so that pushed me late with getting ready. I hate being frantic! I made clam chowder to go with our theme and everyone loved it! So that's good at least.
H was so overwhelmed as well and barely smiled until the end when a lot of people had left. As soon as we walked into the room to go for his nap, he kept saying "Bye Bye!" It was adorable. He ate a few bites of the cake but then got mad when I tried to put his hands in it, lol.
I haven't DLed all the pictures from my camera but here are a few.
Chloe - Yes I have the toddler cookbook, it does have a few recipes, but really it is meant to be a whole family cookbook, so it gives you ideas for dinner and then you can pulse it in the processor to break it up, or just cut bite sized pieces. I completely understand you on the dinner thing, sometimes it's so hard! H has had his fair share of cheese and banana dinners lol. Especially when we have fish for dinner, it's hard to throw something together for him. If we're really desperate, I'll just give him a Sprout pouch that we usually only use when we are out and about.
