I'm a Big Boy Now!!

Our little baby turned one today, can you believe it? We had the Boyers, our old neighbors the Bories, and our good friend Aaron Terry over for a cake and icecream celebration. Abe was SO excited to have so many friends at his house. I really thought that he would be more into all the wrapping paper, but he wasn't too interested. He loved all the toys though and had a great time playing with all his new loot. The highlight of the evening was definately the eating of the cake. In this case, a picture is worth a thousand words. I made Abe a Dump Truck cake (it is really a bunch of cupcakes), but we thought Abe needed more than a cupcake to dig in. I was pretty nervous to make his cake, since all my sisters and sister-in-laws are amazing at cake making. I think his turned out well though and I was proud of it. Sorry for the overload of pictures, I'll just post my favorites and put the rest in a slideshow. Happy Birthday Buddy! We love you!One of his favorite new toys.Another favorite.

There were so many of these pictures that were just adorable! I would have posted them all, but you'll have to look through the slideshow to see the rest!


Trying to get him clean was an event in and of itself! Here is the cute duck Aunt Jessie sent.

Happy Birthday Abe.
The cake looks awesome and there is no such thing as to many pictures of a first birthday.

Cake looked great- cupcakes are all the rage and that is what Elise wants for her birthday this year.

I can't believe he is so big already! Didn't you promise me a visit sometime this fall/winter?

Happy birthday Abe!!
The cake looked awesome! I just might have to steal that design in December. Those pictures of him eating the cake are priceless, looks like he had the time of his life! He is one spoiled little boy!

Wow! I nearly cried as I read this post, partly because I wish we could be closer to the little guy (and you guys too) and partly because it made me realize that my baby will be one TOMORROW! I haven't even bought him anything or thought about a cake.

Abe is sure a GREAT baby! Loved the pictures.

Happy Birthday little buddy! I love the random head on your table Kim, if it was any one else, I would wonder, but I'm sure it's not even a Halloween thing, just a center piece :) The cake does look awesome.

One already?? No way! Kim, you put us all to shame with your birthday cake! That is SO super cute! Happy Birthday, sweet Abe!
