Happy First Birthday Parker!

I was busy most of last week planning Parker's First Birthday. Can you believe that he is all ready 1 years old?!? We did a Mickey Mouse theme for his party. Every morning, when we are getting ready to go to the gym, he watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He always stops whatever he is doing to watch Mickey Mouse. I think he loves Mickey's high pitched voice and songs.


My Mouseceteer - can you believe he kept his ears on for most of the party?


The kids playing games. Eventually, the ball broke the chandelier in the room. Luckily, it is a light that I was planning on replacing as soon as Phillip is finished with the remodel project.


The gang watching Parker and me open his gifts.


Since Parker wasn't too interested in opening the gifts- too much going on- the other kids wanted to help.


Tiana, Joe, Jess and baby Chloe. Everyone had mouse ears! What great sports our friends are!



Bradly and Parker say "Cheese".


Jess and Joe wearing their mouse ears.

We had a local bakery make Parker's first birthday cake - chocolate of course! I wanted a Mickey Mouse head, thinking that would be easy...but no one could make it. Something about copyright or some silly thing. I personally don't understand that since I could go to Michael's Craft Stores right now and purchase a Mickey Mouse cake pan this very second...if only I could decorate cakes. Well, I guess that is on my list of things I need to learn now.

Katie, Parker and I - singing Happy Birthday to Parker. You should have seen the look on his face. he didn't know what to think of all the hoop-la.

The big ice-cream project that Phillip was out of town for the past two weeks made their debut at Parker's party. They were yummy.

Instead of a Mickey Mouse head, this is what I got. It isn't exactly what I had in mind...but I am very particular about the details of my events. The cake tasted very good regardless. I suppose I will give the bakery another chance next year, but I will have to be more involved in the design of the cake. I am sure they will hate me...
If there was ever a doubt that he wasn't my son before...there certainly can't be a doubt now. Mmmm, chocolate cake! Parker absolutely loved the cake. He couldn't get enough.

Happy Birthday Baby Boy!! Mommy loves you more than you can ever imagine!
