Eli Turned One on June 28th.
And I was good and had a party. (well it was on the 29th but close enough!)
But I haven't posted about it yet.... sooooo

We had TONS of family over for it.
Brooke and Brett
Bryan and Erin and their 7 kiddos
Lindsay and Derik and 2 kiddos
Brad and Whit and 2 kiddos
Both Grandma's and Grandpa's
Bob and 1 kiddo

So we had it outside in the new backyard. Had to break it in!

His cake. I came up with this idea from a shirt he was wearing - it didn't look like this but it had a robot on it...

He wasn't totally sure about the cake thing. And I had totally pegged him as a dive in head first kind of kid.
Guess not!

He was exhausted by party time and really just sat and did this...
or crawled around and spilled people's plates!

Opening presents (most of which he could have cared less about!)

I can't believe he is one!
My little man!
He certainly is a LOT of work.
But we love him and are so glad he's in our family!


AND I have lots of editing and posting of photos on my photo blog as of late. (i've got 3 shoots done and 7 more to edit and more shoots scheduled!)

AND we had our family pictures taken with one of my favorite photographers. You can see a sneak peak here. :)
