We waited until the 28th to celebrate his birthday.  Somehow we managed to squeeze twenty adults and children into our dinning room for dinner.  He was totally oblivious to the fact that all of those people where there to celebrate his birthday.  He was just happy to have the house full of people and excitement.

The cake looked great… but it didn’t taste very good.  I made it from scratch.  The party guests were kind and complemented me, but then I had a piece and realized it tasted like almond flavored toast!

After dinner he was ready to dive into the colorful presents that waited on the floor for him.

He wasn’t the only one excited about the presents.  It’s hard on a kid to watch someone else open all the presents!

After gifts he blew out his candle as we sang him Happy Birthday

He approached his cake cautiously at first.  He must of thought that having a piece of cake all to himself was to good to be true.

Soon fingers gave way to an entire fist full of cake.

Our lives have been blessed by his bright eyes and beaming smile.

    Oh the “joy” of having a birthday so soon after Christmas.  Mine is Jan. 5 and it is easy to overlook because we are tired of sweets and parties by then.  You have a special job of making his birthday an exciting time each year.

    I love first b-day cake smeared faces. LOL! Too cute! And you you cake and table settings were cute too! Sorry the cake didn’t taste so great. You wouldn’t think cakes were a tricky thing, but they really can be.
