I love 1st birthdays. We have done them simple with family all three times and they have been my favorite parties. Blake had a blast. I made chicken, potato casserole, rolls, salsa, and cake (of course). Our guests were Daddy, Mommy, Kourtney, McKenna, Papa, Nana, Aunt Marcela (poor Uncle Phil had to work), Max (my furry nephew), "Aunt" Tammy, and Chris. Blake got awesome gifts from everyone including a chair with his name engraved and a bathtub toy from Nana and Papa, a plane that zooms from Phil and Marcela, more cars and race tracks than he knows what to do with from Tammy, a squishy noisy bus from Chris, overalls, blocks, a little people train, and a storage container from Grammy and Grandpa (who were greatly missed), and a basketball hoop and sun glasses from Mommy and Daddy. I will do a separate post for cake and basketball pictures.
