We sure love this kid...

I am overwhelmed at the love there is for my son. We celebrated his first birthday today with lots of our family and a few friends and there was no shortage of joy in our home.

The most joy-filled one of all was this boy...Here are a few pics of the party...thanks for taking these, Christy! You're the best. :)

Here he is! All naked and ready for his CAKE! :)

After making Owen a special wheat-free cake, all he ate was the frosting. ;)

This is my favorite picture of the whole day. You can actually hear him yelling! This, of course, came about 15 minutes after the cake eating started...right as the sugar kicked in.

This boy was SPOILED when it came to the birthday gift portion of the day! Everyone was so generous...I was in shock.

I hope you always know how loved you are, my sweet boy.

He's super cute...and so are you! :) You did such a great job with the decorations and set-up. You're quite the little party planner, Jess! Love it all!

I can't believe your little boy is already almost a year old. How does that happen so fast? Hooray for Owen!

Anne - it means the world to me when the Princess of Craftiness likes what I've put together! (The Queen of Craftiness is undoubtedly Miss Kathy, of course!! :)

Lisa - I'm totally going to do something fun like this for all 4 of our kids when you guys come out so the cousins can celebrate all of their birthdays together!! :)

Goodness. He is SO cute. I cannot believe I missed out on the par-tay. Give that boy SWEET kisses and loves for me.

Missing you.

What a great party! Love all the details. I made a bday banner for Jonas' first birthday and then I couldn't part w/ it when it was all over with so I kept it and reused it at his second birthday and might even use it for Sophie's first (or maybe she'll get her own girly one, would be fun to make another one). Owen is just the cutest. I hope we can spend some time with all your clan this summer.
