Caleb's Big Day



We had Caleb's party last Sunday with a house full of family. Steve's Dad and step-mom were in town, so it was lot's of fun to have them here for the big event! As always, a first birthday party is more for the adults and the memories, as was evidenced by Caleb crying off and on throughout the festivities. It is all just a little much for the little guy! We opened presents....



And we made him wear the birthday hat against his wishes...



And we all sang a rousing version of Happy Birthday, which made him freeze in fear and stare at all of us like we were completely crazy....



However, the cake was his favorite part of the day. He takes his food very seriously, and his cake was no different! I made a cake that was for the adult crowd...


And then Caleb had his own little cake to eat in whatever way he chose. And this is what he did...




By the end, it was just too much trouble to use his hands and he just did a face plant in the cake. He liked that method so much, he continued with it for the remainder of his first cake eating experience. It was a great moment that he can relive later in life in photos and a video. He will love that I am sure :~)

So we had to say goodbye to Grandpa and Grammi on Monday as they headed back on the long drive to sunny So Cal (southern California for those who aren't down with the lingo). It was great to see them as always, and we look forward to the next time we can all be together. They watched the boys on Saturday night so that Steve and I could go out on a date. We had such a great time! We went to a Mexican restaurant in downtown Dallas that had live Latin jazz music. Thanks again Grandpa and Grammi for a great weekend together!
