We celebrated big boy's first birthday this past weekend with cake and company. Paddy boy didn't realize he had so many friends. =) He was in high spirits the whole day. He ate his cake, he opened his presents, he took no nap... it was his birthday on his terms. Seems fitting.
The cake didn't smash up as planned, though. That marzipan just doesn't give like buttercream. Still tastes good, though.

He kept looking at me with this face & I'm fairly certain he was asking "You ok with this, lady?" Cute boy.
|cakes, favors, presents, the boy|
Big sis was a big help with decorating and making the party bags. It may not look it from this picture, but she did hang up his birthday banner and stuff favors into goodie bags. She was a big help.
|He was still wondering what to do about that cake, bless him.|
|But he knew just what to do about the presents!|
|The favorite present was this abacus from Ikea.|
