Good Morning Birthday Boy!

We spent a busy and fun day together decorating the house and cooking and baking. Olivia spent all morning coloring pictures of cars and street signs to hang on the walls. After school we had her book fair and Parent Teacher Conferences (she's doing great by the way.) And then it was home for a yummy dinner and race car birthday party with the Benson family.
Here is my masterpiece! It's the first non-square cake I've ever made and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out! :)
He was excited about the fire...
But not so much the cake.
I've never seen such a clean post-birthday cake 1 year old before. He wouldn't even touch it!
Olivia on the other hand, was more than happy to show him how it's supposed to be done.

Olivia and Wyatt were kind enough to show him how to open presents as well. :)
He LOVED his "Little People" lift the flap book, his mini squishy cars and his eye-spy quilt. He warmed up to the noisy fire engine after a few minutes and would bounce up and down clapping his hands for the rest of the night whenever it would go zooming by.
Happy Birthday sweet little man!!

I still cannot believe he's 1!! How does time fly by so quickly? We're going to be old before we know it. Haha. Your cake looked awesome, I am very impressed! And Livvy's bangs look very good too. You are braver than I, I won't touch Beth's hair with scissors.

Caleb is so cute. It looks like he had a fun little party.I remember when Brynn turned one she won't touch the cake at all. My other two did, but not her. Funny kids. I also love Olivia bangs. Brynn got bangs about a year ago, and I have loved not having her hair in her face. Loves

What a cutie! Too bad he didn't dig into the cute little cake. Maybe he just didn't want to upset you after you worked so hard on it!! j/k
