For the past 7-8 months I collected memories, pictures and kind words from family and friends and created a photo book through Shutterfly. But I wanted to do more than just give him memories, so my sister and I threw him a party!
It was a huge success, we held it at a restaurant so we didn't have to setup or take down which made for a stress-free party on my part. There was enough space for all the guests and enough food without having too many leftovers, all the guests and my mom loved the book, and I was delighted to perform my party trick of cutting the cake with floss. I very rarely take pictures, so I pretty much have to rely on other people to take pictures and hope they share with me. But my favorite moment was this:
