I love that he was born on a Friday, because we had his party on his real birthday! We had a cowboy theme, y'all, and had a rootin' tootin' good time. Ok, cheesy words I know, but I love a good theme.
Here is the birthday boy before the party began. He was not too happy about having his picture taken, but I wanted to snap a pic of his cute shirt! The boots were precious too, and he wore them for about three minutes. Money well spent.
I went cowboy with the decor, of course. I was so fortunate to borrow many decorations from my mom. Vacation Bible School was a western theme last year, so she had lots of good stuff.

Presents! Hayes was interested for a short time. Then he played in paper and boxes.
He LOVED his cake! He did not hesitate at all and ate almost all of it. I can't blame him. Chocolate cake is so much more delicious than pureed fruits and veggies.
Happy first birthday! We had such a special day celebrating you. You are just a wonderful gift and add so much to our family. You love to be around people and you are so smart and determined, and I can't wait to see you use these qualities to love God and love others.
Excited to celebrate many more,
