Birthday Party: My baby is 1!

So, Seth isn't really one yet...the real birthday is Thursday, but since his original birthday was a week ago, I figure I can cheat and celebrate for a week long, right?  We had his birthday party this past Saturday.  Troy voted for a fireman theme, so Chief Seth Rider was the honored guest at the fire station for the day.  We had lots of fun with our family.  It was a very special treat to have both sets of grandparents and Seths grandparents all together in the same room.  Lots of aunts and uncles and cousins shared the day with us.  We're so blessed to have family that loves our crazy kids as their own!  Here are the highlights of our week-long celebration (thus far):

Making a mess for the cupcakes:

These are fire engines....not semi trucks with wierd wings:

Making lollipops....that was really fun and pretty easy!  We might have to try it in Cubbies sometime....ok, maybe not.

The finished product (some of them, anyway).  My mom added the "1" for the final touch, thanks Mom.

The painting, by none other than Abby Charlton, of course!

Happy Birthday, my little silly man!

Again, I LOVE the fire trucks! You have quite the talent - and PATIENCE!

And I hope you don't mind, but I'm ordering that same painting for Tate - except it will have his name of course instead of Seth's...

Seth makes a very adorable 1 year old!
