One is FUN!!!

So Saturday was a big day for Michael. He turned the big 1!!!! We had a really fun time getting ready for his celebration. Auntie Terry(she is going to help care for Michael & our dogs while we are picking up PC) is in these first pictures signing his birthday plate. She also made the big cake for everyone while I made the little one for Michael. We decided to do carrot to make it a little healthier.

We had a wonderful dinner of beef short ribs, rice, and asparagus. Michael really loved it and wolfed it down. We had it once before and he told me he wanted it for his birthday dinner:)

Then we blew out his cake. It was great watching him taste cake for the first time!!

We had another cake for him pre-presents. He wanted to dive into that one too but we didn't let him.

We had a pinata that my nieces and nephew loved, but Michael didn't quite get it yet. He did love his gift from Tito Dave, and so did the others. It was quite a riot to watch them mimic it.

And this is the end of a wonderful day!!! We are so blessed and deliriously happy to have our son Michael!
