Birthday Party Extravaganza

To celebrate Caleb's birthday, Doug and I decided to throw him an awesome birthday party. There were friends, burgers, cake, balloons, and lots of presents-- all the essentials of an awesome 1st birthday party! My good friend Anj was the party photographer-- here are some of the great pics she took of the evening:

Caleb and his Auntie Kristi

One of the rare times that Micah gets to drink pop... (stay tuned for the after effects)

Welcome to the party boys!

Caleb was really excited that all of his friends could make it.

This one just melts my heart-- Keziah, you are so pretty!

What do you think they're talking about? Wedding plans, maybe?

Remember the pop? Here's what happens when a three year old and coke mix!

The birthday cake!

Singing happy birthday... At one point I thought he would break into tears, but he managed to hold it together!

Give me my cake! I've waited all year for this!

First bites... this is pretty good!

Mom! That's my cake!

Opening presents... and starting to get sleepy... not a good combination.

And once Caleb went to bed... everyone else decided to break in his new toys! Who knew toddler toys could inspire so much fun for a group of adults!

Thanks for coming everyone! Happy birthday buddy!

Looks like our boys not only share the same birthday, but had a very similar party! (Right down to the exact same cakes!)

Sounds like it was a fun party! It looks like Caleb had a wonderful 1st birthday. Anj did a great job of taking pictures. The one of Caleb laughing in his highchair is priceless! And I love the picture of Micah after pop:) - too funny!
