Planning first birthday party!!

I can't believe it's almost been a year already! My baby is growing up too fast! Everyone told me the first year would fly by, but I didn't think it would go by THIS FAST! So now we are planning his first birthday. At first I was all set to give him a duck themed birthday party (all for my viewing pleasure of course!) but he is SOOOO in love with Elmo, so I have decided to give him what he wants ;) So far, I'm set on an Elmo cake and hiring someone in an Elmo costume to come and entertain the kids. I'm still trying to decide if I should do the party at my mom's house or mine. I would love to do it here, but I worry that most of my family will not want to drive the 2.5 hours to his party. But if I give it at my mom's house, then we will have to make the birthday boy ride 2.5 hours to his own party...Is that fair?? LOL? Perhaps I will call family and ask them if they would be willing to come here for his birthday. We've been in MS for almost 2 yrs now and the only family that has ever visited us has been my parents and my brother. I really want J's cousins to be there at his party, so I'll have to decide on the best spot. Oh well...I have 3 months left right???

1 year old parties are so FUN! I can't wait to see all the Elmo stuff you can come up with!

Are you kidding 2.5 hours and nobody visits! That's sad! I'd drive at least double that to get my hands on Jayden regularly! I love Elmo too!
