We've had family visiting the last few weeks so I haven't had much time to write! That's a good thing though, since time spent with family is so much more valuable than time spend online.
Anyway, while both sets of grandparents were here we had an early 1st birthday celebration for Hayden. We went with the airplane theme again (poor kid, he doesn't stand a chance). We hung some clouds made with cotton balls and cardstock to the ceiling fan and put out our little collection of planes on the table. Hayden already has an obsession with ceiling fans, so hanging something on them as well really made his day!
I didn't do anything fancy with his cake. Its a boxed mix and a few cans of white frosting. I just tinted a little of the frosting blue, and then piped on some clouds with the remaining white frosting. I reused his little pilot rubber duckie from my baby shower as a topper. I thought it would encourage him to dig in, but apparently, redheaded babies don't like cake!
Overall it was a pretty short and sweet little party but I think we all enjoyed watching Hayden's disgust towards his cake!
Welcome! My name is Marie, and I have been married for 5 years now. We have one beautiful son, Isaac, waiting for us in Heaven and another son, Hayden, here with us! I hope to share with you more about our journey- where we have been and where we are going.
