Andrew's First Birthday Party

We had Andrew's 1st Birthday party yesterday because my sister, Rachel and her family will be in Florida for his actual birthday.



Humpty Dumpty cakes.

Little one for Andrew and
big one for everyone else.









based loosely on this wall art hanging above Andrew's bed.
















All ready












Andrew was having an "I need Mommy" day.

















present from William



















Opening present from Sarah



































present from Emily
















present from Uncle Dean & Aunt Lisa

















We had to wake Emily up for the party (it took quite a bit, too!) and she was groggy for the first while!
















present #1 from Mommy & Daddy


































present #2 from Mommy & Daddy















present from Grandpa & Grandma



















look I can get in all by myself














Ta-da!














I didn't get a good picture of Andrew with his present from Uncle Jason & Aunt Rachel, but here it is (the snake) with the other 3 kids' chairs. (Age order from left to right)












Andrew in the "Happy 1st Birthday" bib I made before Sarah's 1st Birthday.






























"Happy Birthday to you..."


































Yummy!




















































playing with the new toys


































reading books















playing in the boys' room



















story time with Grandpa














This is the only picture I got of Andrew and Peter together.









The kids all sitting in the chairs that Grandpa made them.

He made rocking chairs for some of the 1st born grandkids, but I asked if he'd make one for each of my kids so they would have their own since Sarah didn't want to share hers!









They are all different














a rocking circle

Becky, I keep meaning to bring our paint pens and redo the details on Sarah's and Emily's chairs. Sometime if you'd like to bring them over here, I can redo the details for you. Or, I'll try to remember and bring them over sometime!
