David Turns One!

My baby Davie turned one on Sunday August 5th. In some ways it is hard to believe and in others, not at all. Let's face it, the kid hasn't thought he was a baby since he was about 3 months old. We happened to be in Ogden on the weekend of his birthday for Dan's grandpa's funeral...not a happy occasion, but nice to be with family nonetheless.

I, love having a party theme, but it was a last minute party. So, inspired by the wrapping paper in my mom's closet, we had a froggy theme. It seemed fitting.



Ah, the cake. The pinnacle of a one-year-old's party. Good thing
we chose a green theme. :)



The cake before Davie slaughtered it...good job Dan!



See what I mean about thinking he isn't a baby...Grace was

so not doing that at one...


He wasn't sure what to do about the presents, but Grace

sure was. Whenever David gets something Grace says "I want to share."

Sure you do Grace.....in translation that means, "Give me your toys now."

Too funny. Love the frog theme. My little Dane is the SAME- he does not want to be a baby! It's shocking when you are used to the first. Evy was not at all so eager to grow up. Dane is only 6 months and wants to walk and move more than anything. Cute pictures of you all.

I forgot that David's birthday is the same as Sophie's (she just turned four). How did you make the cake?

What a great cake! Fun birthday!

Are you getting settled in? We're anxious to hear about New Haven. Are Brian and Jeannie Sorensen in your ward by chance? He's an ER resident. They just moved to New Haven as well. They are such sweet people. I thought maybe you'd end up in the same ward.
