Charlie's Birthday Bash

We had a great time Sunday morning celebrating Charlie's first birthday with a few friends and family.

Here's our birthday boy with his birthday hat on. He actually wore it for about 20 seconds which is a hat-wearing record for him.
He enjoyed opening his presents. Well,l I should say, Jack and Melody enjoyed opening his presents. This is the only present Charlie actually got to open. And really he only tore the paper a little bit before the rest of the kids swooped in and finished it off.


The masterpiece cake I made. I was pretty proud of it even thought it didn't look nearly as good as the one of the video I used as a guide.

Do you think he liked the cake?



Of course he did! Who doesn't like cake? No one in our family, at least.
