The Big Celebration!

Daddy's been promising Carter a giant birthday party since the little guy was one week old. Well, he certainly delivered! We had our family over for a Subway party sub, and the kids played in the back yard with the bouncy castle, while the rest of us just relaxed and chatted.

First, let me tell you about the cake. Our dear friend, Anna, made Carter this AMAZING cake. It was bigger than he is! It tasted just as good as it looks. THANK YOU ANNA! Carter (and the rest of us) LOVED it! It certainly made his first birthday even more special. The cake was simply perfect!




She made a little cake for him to dive into as well.






He liked it at first until some of the frosting got stuck in his cleft and he shot it out his nose lol! Everyone spoiled him with clothes and toys. We figure he deserves it though! Carter had a little cold, so he didn't quite make it through the opening of gifts before he needed a break, but that was OK since brother and sister didn't mind opening them for him. All in all it was a truly excellent day, and a birthday that I won't soon forget. I'm now the proud mother of a one year old! Thank you to everyone for making his day so special!

Oh that cake is to die for! We call Jax our little monkey, that would have been perfect! I'm so behind on birthdays. My neice just recieved her present and her birthday was the 20th. We have four birthday friends this week, Yikes!
Also, what size does Carter wear? I have a bunch of clothes that don't fit Jax anymore, and Carter is the only one I think may be small enough. I hate to chuck them because they are mostly old navy and childrens place clothes.

Happy 1st Birthday ! That is best cake I've seen and I love how Carter got his own cake to . I'm planning a party for Taylor 1st in two weeks and think I may steal that Idea and at least make him his own cupcake.
