Can't believe it's been a year (easy for me to say--I didn't have to change all the diapers).

lol, yeah, he enjoyed that big box :)

Also the blue envelope was one of the favorite "toys" he received!  He wouldn't put it down!  

He wasn't sure about the chocolate cake, we ended up putting his pacifier in the frosting and that's pretty much all he ate.

Here's a video of him eating the cake:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VN5GO8Xve_c&feature=share

He ate two of the cake pops, yesterday though - loved them!

Well, we figured the first birthday is special :)  And it wasn't that much work or money, actually - balloons, streamers, sign, and hats from Party City.  Plates/napkins/favors from Oriental Trading Post.  Cakes and cake pops courtesy my fabulous baker/Cousin Cherise and Aunt Shirley.

Too cute!!! :)  What a handsome young man.  Blue envelopes are the bestest.

When my brother turned one, a lot of his chocolate birthday cake ended up in his diapers.  We have evidence in pictures LOL!

My baby boy is about 2 weeks shy from 13 (gulp).  Time flies - enjoy these little years!

Those pictures are just fun to look at.  I shared them with my wife  and we both enjoyed them- especially the one when baby is just getting his fingers into the cake.

lol, that's all he really got into the cake.  Can't blame him, we've never given him much in the way of cake or chocolate or any sweets!  But he has learned to eat cake pops since the party - he loves those :)

That was just like how it was on our grandson's first BD party.  He got a whole little cake just forhimself and had no idea what to do with it.  Mommy and Daddy helped him get his fingers into it but you could tell he really wasn't certain about the whole fingers in cake thing.  He seems to enjoy licking the frosting some, but he wasn't relaly used to that, either.  We adults loved it!!

I am really glad you are sharing these.  Your family has grown up here.  I remember when you and your hubby met and then married, now the first BD- Great sharing moment.

BTW, hubby looks great.  

So do you.

The last time I was in Yucaipa about 6-7 weeks ago I went biking up a bike trail not far from your office- trail started with LL- two names.  Great biking trail.  All work going up but coming down is lots of fun!!  Next time I get over that way maybe we can meet.

Yes, Loch Leven- that was it.  My son said we went about 2/3 of the way up on our bikes.  The ride down was just fun!

Also, it seems I recognized a few faces in your photos from our group hike when I was out there for cancer treatment.  That was a very good day for me- great moral boost.
