Aidan's First Birthday Party!

I can't believe my little man is a year old! On December 12th we celebrated his life with family and friends. We had a wonderful time, good food, good company and good smiles watching Aidan open presents. Here's a recap in photos...

This is my mom (Grammie) with the baby boy of honor...


Me, heating up some good grub...

Some of the party goers...

This is Aidan and Chris's mom (Grandma)...


Getting ready to open some presents!


I think he was a little excited!


He ripped right into the presents, and boy does he like Tickle Me Elmo!


But just like a typical kid, he liked the ribbons even more!

About halfway through we had to take a tantrum time out... he was getting pretty tired, but I set off the Tickle Me Elmo again and gave him some ribbon and we started back in...

He really figured out opening presents quickly...

And when all was said and done, Aidan went back to the ribbon.


Now time for cake...


Aidan thought it was another present and tried unwrapping it...


I made his cake. It was a mix in the organic section and was peanut free, dairy free and egg free. His frosting was made with whipping cream and sugar free vanilla pudding. It was actually really tasty. I just had something against his first real people food (other than veggies) being so full of sugar! I also decorated the cake myself, I got my first cake decorating lesson that morning from Chris's aunt who decorates cakes.

He ripped into it pretty good but only took like 2 or 3 bites...

And that was Aidan's party. We all had a really good time and Aidan was such a good boy. He is so social and was just happy the whole time! Happy Birthday Aidan!
