Gibson Turns One!

So, the original reason for flying up for a quick weekend in Indy was to celebrate with my family on Gibson's first birthday. Here are the photos that tell the tale:

Ceiling decor

Table decor - blues and greens.
And, interestingly, people brought packages mostly in those colors.
Way to coordinate, people!

Of the four 2010 babies, Gibby is the only one who was truly walking on his 1st birthday!

The present from us - his favorite part - the card that had a fuzzy nose.

The part his mom liked - the shirts with his name.

His Dad took photos...

What's in there?

This gift - definitely on LM's Santa list.

Bevi took the monster outdoors for a while during presents...

Soft books for Gibson from my mom - I'm sensing a theme here.

The kid really cleaned up!

Luckily, this toy had lots of parts - plenty to go around for all the little boys!

Before the cake!

Amused by the singing

IMG_1739
Not sure...

IMG_1747
...didn't take long.

IMG_1752
SO glad I went around and got this shot. 
I love it!

IMG_1754
Gibson preferred the "face in cake" approach.

IMG_1768

IMG_1781
LOVE this one too.

IMG_1785
Nom Nom

IMG_1788
Good job Gibby!

IMG_1789
The cake!

My mom made the cake, and she was disappointed in how it turned out. But, I thought it was totally cute. And, it tasted amazing.

IMG_1796
Gibby liked the cake, for sure!

IMG_1803
Mama put the birthday hat on for a few photos.
This led to icing in Gibson's hair! Hee hee.

IMG_1805
Great fun.

IMG_1815
Fun with Cousin Cora!

IMG_1817

IMG_1831
One thing is for certain. 
LM and Gibson have LOTS of boy cousins to look up to.

IMG_1835
And they make good drums too.

IMG_1837
Uncle Bob's always good for a little fun too.

IMG_1848
Gibson totally agrees with that assessment.

IMG_1858
Go ahead baby, shake shake shake!

IMG_1861
Nathon is playing soccer.
Turns out some soccer stuff the kids just outgrew fits him!

IMG_1866
Such a cutie!

IMG_1863
A fun time was had by all!
Happy Birthday Gibson!

We have a full weekend planned - a playgroup meeting at our house. Seriously, I have no idea why I thought that was a good idea after being out of town last weekend. But, it's a happening! Then, some family photos on Sunday. And, other "stuff". Lots of "stuff". Maybe finishing the vests!!! I hope your weekend is a good one. 

See you soon.
