Our Little Pumpkin

Below are pictures of our little Christian's one year birthday party, as well as photos of both of our boys prepping for the party with a little pumpkin decorating. We had a wonderful weekend of celebrating. It is just unbelievable that a year has blown away like the wind! In fact, this is what we had printed on the top of Christian's invitations:

"Our Little Pumpkin is as cute as pie,
And his first year has just flown by...."

Our little pumpkin:
Caleb and Christian, and pumpkin decorating fun: The birthday party invitations (recognize that pumpkin-like photo of Christian?):

The goody bags:
Filled with pumpkin goodies and candy corn:
Mommy and her baby birthday boy:
Here comes the gigantic pumpkin cake:
Happy birthday to you, my little pumpkin:
The cake (it was HUGE! I used 2 bundt pan cakes - one upside down - stacked on top of each other, then coated with A LOT of buttercream icing):
Christian TOTALLY rejected the cake. He refused to take one bite!!!:
Not everyone rejected the cake, however:
Diving into presents (with a few little helpers): Our cute little pumpkin, having fun at his birthday party:

It's my birthday! We love you, Christian!:

3 friends had a thing or two to say...:

Darlene, I love that cake! What another wonderful event and more fun memories for the book! I just made a really fun folding card that would be perfect for your celebration memories and it wasn't to hard to make either. Happy Birthday to your little guy!
