Gavin's First Birthday

Last week, we celebrated our son's very first birthday!  Where has the time flown?  It seems like just the other day that we first welcomed our sweet little one into the world and now he's already 1 year old! (above is a picture of him at 1 year and below at 1 day)

"Hold him a little longer, rock him a little more,
tell him another story, tell him a million more.
Let him sleep on your shoulder, cherish his every smile.
He is only a baby for just a little while." ~unknown

 Since Gavin LOVES being outside, we chose to have a fishing themed party for him!
Here a few pictures of his exciting day:

"Reeds" or "Cattails"
Were made of chocolate dipped marshmallows
on sticks

Tons of sandwiches cut with a fish-shaped cookie cutter

 Jesse's masterpiece; the carved watermelon turtle!

 Everything turned out soooooo cute!  I really want to thank all of the Wrights for all of their help in making this party look amazing.  Couldn't have done it without y'all!

 Jesse made this cupcake stand from cedar log slices and I love how beautifully it turned out.
Hopefully we will have these for sale in our Etsy Shop before too long.
 Adorable "fishing" cupcakes

The tables were decorated so prettily.  The horseshoe paper towel holder was made by Jesse and is also soon to be available in our Etsy Shop.
 Gavin enjoying all of his new gifts!

 He simply loves books
and anything with wheels!

And we ended the day off by going fishing at the pond!

Happy Birthday to you, our handsome little Gavin!  We love you so very much!  You are so cheerful and kind, and we are very grateful that we've been blessed to be your parents.  Thank for all of your precious smiles and for always making us laugh.  It's so wonderful getting to watch as you discover and explore this big world around you.

We love you little man!
