first b-day party

I'm finally getting around to posting about this little man's birthday bash. We had an island theme party complete with shredded pork roast and all the island mixed plate staples; rice, macaroni salad, coleslaw, and fruit salad. These pics were taken right before the party started. I had to include his yelling photo :)
After dinner it was pinata time!!
I'm not a very ambitious mom when it comes to creating adorable birthday cakes (oh how I admire those mommies!) so my kids get to have birthday cakes ala Costco :) At least they are delicious!
And Kai got in there and enjoyed his cake
What a crowd, he's in there somewhere being adored by all his cousins while he chows down! We are so lucky to have so many loving relatives :)
And now it was time for a little soak in the tub to clean off all the chocolate goodness!
It was a very fun First birthday party can't wait for many, many more!!!

One year ago....

..this precious little bundle entered my life and melted all our hearts! Has it really been a year?!?Things he "does" now..
-Walking or running everywhere
-Still no teeth but that's nothing new to us. Teagan was the only one to cut a tooth before his first birthday.
-He's a 20 pounder
-Won't smile for you until you earn it. But a pleasant little guy otherwise :)
-Loves his big brothers and sisters more than anything! They are his VIP's for sure

And now he's still a little sweetheart but with a budding fiesty side :) This is his "what the...?!" face. Oh how I love you! Happy Birthday to you, my little Kai-Kai ;)))
