As if having a Birthday party at our house for Emma (with 12 girls) wasn’t enough excitement for one day, we decided to have Cash’s 1 year party that evening! Their Birthdays are exactly one week apart and December 14th fell right smack in the middle. I figured it would be easiest to clean the house thoroughly ONCE than clean it 2 weeks in a row. :) I needed to do it the 14th instead of the 21st so that I could have at least 10 days to prepare for Christmas. Oh the joys of having 3 Winter Birthdays! We also celebrated Emma’s Birthday with family at Cash’s party. When I talked to her about celebrating her Birthday with family she said, “Can I PLEASE just share a party with Cash?” Well of course!
When I started thinking about a theme for Cash’s 1st Birthday party, I didn’t have to think very long…. I knew I wanted to have a firetruck/fireman theme since Firemen helped him enter this world! I didn’t go over the top for Cash’s Birthday. I ordered the cake at Walmart the day before the party and I picked up Rex’s chicken for the meal. We just invited family.
My friend, Krista, let me borrow her “ONE” sign that she made for her little boy’s 1st B-day party. I had several of my favorite pictures of Cash on display for his party. I’m a little nuts about pictures.
My good friend, Candace, made these adorable cookies for Cash’s parties. She amazes me, she can make ANYTHING! I love that she put his name on some of them and a “1” on some of them. What a special addition to his party. They are so yummy. I must admit that I ate 3 of them while decorating for the party…. oops.

Robin made a video for Cash’s 1 year Birthday- he has done this with each of our kids and it is so so special. Emma and Foster still ask to watch their video on a regular basis. We always watch it at the child’s 1st B-day party. Here is Cash ‘watching’ his video. :)
Gift time! Cash got so many nice gifts!

After Emma and Cash opened gifts we sang to both of them and lit their Birthday candles…
Cash did not dive into his cake like I thought he might…the dents you see in the cake are from me trying to entice him to eat it! :)
I love these pictures of Foster behind Cash- he is photobombing Cash’s 1st Birthday cake-eating pics!
One of Cash’s gifts- a giraffe ride on toy!
Cash started really started acting like a ham towards the end of the night- I think he realized the party was about him and he really enjoyed the attention!
Thank you Nana, Judy, and Ron for helping us celebrate! We are so proud of our big 1 year old!
