Twas the night before a birthday... so we decorated, of course!
The big day arrived! Evan was excited to get started with life as a 1 year old. Isn't that an awesome smile?!
He was a bit confused when he saw the decorations...
But then we gave him a crown and explained it was *his* day!
We played. We bought balloons, which Evan was impressed by (I think):
And later in the day? We had cake. Grandma made Evan's birthday cake for him, and it was a beauty! Bright blue and green. I made blue velvet cupcakes to go with it, in keeping with our blue theme.
Evan looked like a smurf by the time he was done working on his cake.
The older three headed off to karate and Evan and Lincoln enjoyed a bath. When the trio came home it was present time!
Happy birthday, little guy! We hope you like all the new toys that make noise. :) More importantly, we're glad we've had a great year watching you grow into the gleeful and inquisitive toddler you are today!
