JOSEPH'S FIRST BIRTHDAY WAS SO MUCH FUN!
As Suze Orman says, "People first, then money, then things"... well, to describe the pictures, it's - People first, then FOOD, then things :)
Since it was Oct 25, a few days before Halloween, we started off having Joseph and his guests have a photo-op in their costumes. It was a zoo- because we had lots of animal costumes, and also because of the mayhem that happens trying to take a picture of lots of kids at the same time.
After the pictures, we had some yummy lunch, and followed by a great puppet show! It was called "Baby Bear's 1st Birthday". Super cute.
After the cake, Joseph gave all his guests a little white pumpkin and a balloon.
It's hard to believe that a year has come and gone. Joseph is such a cute little toddler now. He's a great walker, talker, and all around shaker! He is so sweet whenever he says "mama" and "daddy". The best is when he folds his arms when we pray. He will always be our precious little guy.
Hope you enjoy our pics! We hope you can come at the next big bash!
