It's someone's birthday!

We had an excellent first birthday celebration!
Full of friends and family, and cake and presents and lots of kids running around. Nickolas had a blast!
He got to eat and get messy - but surprisingly not too messy.He ate his whole cupcake, and loved it (surprise, surprise).

I want to mention here that I know Nickolas is wearing some pretty boring clothes for a birthday celebration. But he actually did have a matching outfit to go with Katheryn's dress. Amazingly it was soo hot that he couldn't wear his sweater at all! We actually had all the windows open in the house. (In November, in Canada I was very surprised).

OK back to presents...

Nick got lots of presents, some toys and clothes and Katheryn really liked showing him how they all worked. When Katheryn saw his new foam chair - she ran and got hers - so they could sit together!

Katheryn was too busy having fun that she didn't even want to open the presents that she had to open as well (so she didn't get jealous). A couple of people had similar ideas and so Katheryn had a few presents to open. But nope - couldn't stop her playing to open anything!

It was really fun watching Nick try to figure out his new toys. And the smile on his face when his toys started working! He really liked this toy racetrack, lots of noise and things going all over. Nick sat there and kept putting more and more toys down the track so they could roll around and shoot off!

And at the end of the day, everyone was all tuckered out and ready for bed!

The perfect birthday!
