My boy is ONE!

Today was a beautiful day...literally and figuratively. It was a sunny, gorgeous day the day my boy turned one. My mom and sister came in from out of town for the big occasion. Thank God!! I never would have been able to get everything done without them. My mom and sister helped cook and clean. We had queso, guacamole, mini chicken meatballs with mini pasta, chicken nuggets, sliders, fruit, cupcakes and brownies. Mmmmm! Special thanks to Christy for making Gavin's cake. I wanted to make it myself, but just ran out of time. He had a banana cake with chocolate buttercream icing shaped into a monkey face. It turned out so good!

We had lots of guests, and Gavin had so much fun!

My favorite part of the day was when we sang "Happy Birthday" to Gavin and gave him his cake. He did not disappoint us!! He dug into that cake without hesitation and got it everywhere!

What a great day! Thanks to all of our family and friends for making this such a special day!!!


  1. Happy Birthday to Gavin! I can't believe he is 1!! Much love to all of you!

  2. You are so creative and think of everything! The food, decorations and your friends were outstanding. I thank God that I was able to be there with you, my baby, for your baby on his 1st Birthday. I had so much fun, between you and Gary and Gina making me laugh, the adorable Grandson of mine and the things he did, it was moe than I had hoped for. Now you know how stong a mothers love is. You are loved "finite." Thank you for giving me Gary, Gavin & Jack to love also.
