Last night we had a great time for Jake’s birthday. 11 families showed up for the bbq for a total of 43 people in my house. We didn’t end up outside like we planned it was just too cold. Fall is in the air!!

JZ was overwhelmed at present time with all the kids standing over him ~ helping him open everything. He was staring at everyone like a deer caught in the headlights. Stunned! I took some incredible shots of him digging into his cake, a chocolate cake to boot… It took him a while to warm up to the idea of sticking his hands into the goo (a little friend had to help coax him into taking his first bite) but once he had a taste of the icing ~ he was hooked. Pretty soon he had it smeered from one ear to the other; he was blinking through green and brown icing. The bathtub had a huge ring around it!!! He still feels a bit greasy… such soft skin!!

Thanks to everyone for coming; for bringing side dishes and the gifts for Jake and for helping clean it all up afterwards! You’re a fun group of friends!!
