Of course, we also got to celebrate this week because Lucas turned one. [Be prepared ... if you're not ready for a cuteness overload, you should exit now.]
Today, we gathered at Amanda and Steve's for Lucas's first birthday party.
Of course, there was the celebratory cake that is a rite of passage for a one year old to smear all over himself. Lucas did a GREAT job with the smearing! He had his own personal paparazzi with both grandma's and me shooting pretty much continuously. At one point, Amanda did ask if someone was taking some pictures - only about 100 :-)
After a quick rinse in the tub...
... there were presents! Lots of presents. This little boy is so loved. Probably the most unique gift was a special bottle from his Uncle Aaron that they will share in twenty years to celebrate a different milestone birthday.
And, with a Mickey themed party, there was lots of Mickey Gear, as well as a few beloved car and truck toys, a new swing, some doggy themed items, lots of Colts gear - just in time for the big game tonight - and a little cold, hard cash.
What a great party and a wonderful time getting together with the family. My personal most special moment - I got to rock this little man and give him a bottle. He didn't go off to dreamland, although he was tired enough to do so after all this partying, but he did snuggle for a few minutes and rest.
Did you celebrate anything special this weekend?
