We had a small family only gathering here at our house. We were limited to having his party on his actual birthday and subsequently a week night due to Daniel's work schedule. I personally like it that way and feel that having it on his actual birthday makes it extra special.
We served dinner of Baked 4 cheese penne along with salad with a variety of veggie toppings... And of course there was cake, or at least cupcakes.
Here are some photos from the little man's shindig.

|Mustache smash cake by me|
|Mustache chocolate lollipops, the candy mold was ordered from Amazon|

|He barely even picked at the cake-- not what any of us were expecting to happen.|
|LOVED the chocolate lollipops though!|
Happy happy birthday sweet Hayden! We love you SO much and hope that you enjoyed your special day. We look forward to many more birthdays with you.
** Also, if anyone is interested, I have been reminiscing on Hayden's birth today, and you can read his birth story too, here if you're into birthy details. :)
