1st Birthday

The plan was to have a real birthday party for Collin with invites, a cool cake, friends and games. But, that didn't happen. I'm really tired. (Have I mentioned that lately?) In the end, I called my next door neighbors and asked them if they wanted to have cake with us and sing to Collin. They have a little boy Lydia's age and a baby just about the same age as Collin. They walked over and we spent an hour eating cake and watching the kids make a mess. Now that I think of it, that was probably just what Collin would have chosen to do anyway.

I think these blue eyes are here to stay.

I never claim to be much of a cake decorator; I usually just wing it. Tasted yummy though.

At least Collin seemed to think so.

Happy Birthday sweet sweet boy. 

More photos here. Scroll down to see his gifts.

Awe! That looks like a fun time. I think I'm putting to much effort into my little baby's first birthday. I need to not make it a huge production and save that for when they can remember!

Wow...I can't believe your little man is already a whole year old! Looks like you guys celebrated in style. Happy Birthday Collin!!

Collin has the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen. You have precious children. I don't know how I would get anything done around the house with those 2 cuties running around. God Bless You and your family.

Happy Birthday Sweet Collin!! And thank you so much for the gift for my b-day!! I love it. I am so sad that I missed the little party gathering at Melting Pot!! The last week of school was nuts for me--and I was brain dead!! Usually I would never miss a girls night out! I will be there next time!

I think it turned out just perfect. I'm sure I'm going way overboard on E's party. I keep trying to think "Keep it Simple." Baby Collin is so darling, and his mom is equally sweet!

Just stopping by to say -- Why YES I am LDS too! :)

How coincidental!

Your son and mine have birthday's 20 days apart and matching blue eyes. My Noble turned one on May 7th. So fun to have a little one year old man in the house huh?
