Oh my goodness! I can't believe that my little man is 1 year old!! We had a great celebration where I took A LOT of pictures, and I had the hardest time choosing which ones to show you! Thanks to my handy Cricut machine I made everything for the party including invitations and games! We made it a fun, small, family party.
Pin the nose on Elmo game, which all of the kids LOVED to play!

All of the cousins join in on the fun of opening presents!
Aimsey and Kiki bought this amazing stool for Walt. It is a puzzle with a really cool engraving.
It is a tradition for Loli to make every child's first birthday cake, and here is Walt's cake! Look how precious his green, block cake is! Loli is the best cake maker!!
He wasn't fussy once he got a taste of that cake!
Grandmom gave me this antique Wilton big bird cake pan. Thanks to Kiki's awesome icing skills, this cake turned out great! I was going to give up!
Old Friends drive into town for the party.
My little man in his new stroller.
We had his party with the family on the weekend before his birthday, so we reused all of the decorations on his actual birthday! All of the neighborhood kids knew that it was Walt's special day!
I took so many pictures!
Our next door neighbor added this adorable picture to our door when we put our decorations outside!
Walt did not feel well on his birthday, so this picture really sums up his big day!
Another birthday cake!
