…our favorite little guy turned one yesterday and we celebrated all weekend long.
Saturday we had a small party here with just our immediate family. We opened gifts – have to say, the tissue paper we all used abundantly for wrapping was a huge hit!
I think he likes the blanket, but he really loves all the new books and a set of finger puppets featuring barnyard animals.
For this “first cake”, I baked a carrot cake and one cupcake with cream cheese frosting just for him. He totally got the point of frosting.
But it wasn’t until his big party yesterday that he really got into it. literally.
Aren’t they a cute family?! It was fun to see so many friends and family (some of whom I haven’t seen since they got married over two years ago) all gathered to celebrate them and this little one.
Katie did a wonderful job with the food and the decorations. Everyone loved the photo wall. What a year it’s been!
She let the guests take photos home. These are my four.
We tried late in the afternoon for a Marmie and Charlie photo. Would you believe this is the best we could do?
And we didn’t get any with his Aunt Sara…who made a special trip from Wisconsin to be part of the celebration. Oh well, we do have the memories and a renewed focus to do better the next time she’s here!
