The Party...

As all of you know who follow me, I took a cake decorating class last month so I could make Gage a nice cake for his birthday- the kind my Mom used to make me. You probably saw my practice cake last month, and I'm proud to say his birthday cake for the real day came out just as nice. I was pretty proud of myself.

We are happy to report that Gage's party was a success. Don't ask me why we invited so many people- lots of people didn't show, or we would've had a housefull. But it was awesome that so many people came out to celebrate with him, some people I hadn't seen in quite a while. Gage of course got TONS of presents and he is one loved little boy! Unfortunately, 1st bday parties are a whirlwind like anything else and I feel like I missed tons of it. Thankfully my Mom got alot on tape that I missed seeing myself. There was just so much to do and so many people to entertain. At some point, I will try to go in and edit/clip some of the videos to post, but that will be pretty time consuming so for now, here is Gage's birthday weekend-in pictures.

To start Gage's birthday weekend, the Grandparents flew in and Great Aunt and Uncle Julie and Jan came to visit.

Gage enjoyed spending time with his Grandma and Grandpa Itnyre.  He hadn't seen them since April!

Presents just from Mommy, Daddy and the Grandparents
Presents from EVERYONE!

Holy Smokes, I'm one!

My bib is big!

This is what I'm in for??

Do I have something on my butt?

Wouldn't I make a fabulous gift?  Yes, the bag was THAT big.

Me and Grandma and Grandpa Itnyre...until next time!
Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated with us!  We can't wait to see you next year!
