Noah's 1st Birthday

Noah's birthday was on July 27. To celebrate, we got together with Noah's aunts, uncle, cousins, and grandparents. Be warned that I am posting a TON of pictures that will probably excite noone other than me and his Grandma Astle (well, and maybe Rick who can see how much we loved his gift to Noah) (or even Katie because she is featured with our delectable treats)!

disclaimer: Please ignore all pictures of my hair in this post. I got rained on and the humidity was killer that day!!!

I still can't believe my little baby is ONE. I love his little personality. He's so calm, laid back (gets it from his daddy), and fun!

I decided to get pseudo creative on Noah's cupcakes, so I went back to an idea that my mom did for me when I was little. Caterpillar Cupcakes! So fun to make! I enlisted Katie, my gourmet cooking friend, to create with me and we had a blast!

Noah contributed by eating the sugar bottle. Thanks buddy.

Here is the surprise gift that we got from Jared's best friend, Rick- one of his college buddies. Rick lives in Florida and surprised us by sending Noah a huge package for his birthday! He said we needed to raise Noah up right, so he sent a baseball mitt, ball, and bat, along with a really cool Sports book. lol! Thanks Rick!

The majority of the rest of the gifts were from Noah's G-ma Astle (my mom!) Noah's one lucky little boy. :)

I was trying to get a picture of the rain that ruined our pool party. We had fun anyways though.

Such a fun day! Next b-day on the docket: Mine in October, YES!!! I love BDAYS!!!
Love you Noah!!!
