"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Carson's 1st Birthday Party

It's so hard to believe that our little angel is one! Everyone told us that the time would fly by, and it certainly did. What a fun year it has been watching Carson grow into this hilarious, mischievious little boy. He is a riot! For his birthday party, we did the theme, "Bubbles, Balls, and Bouncing" - all things Carson LOVES to do! We had a small ball pit, bubbles with lots of fun accessories, a blow up trampoline (loaned to us by Uncle Steve and Aunt Lori), a swing, and a craft station.

Matt and I spent weeks preparing for Carson's big bash! On the morning of his party, the weatherman gave us some bad news....rain! We were a bit bummed, since the party was all outdoors, but that's what you get for living in Florida! We put up some tents and made the best out of it. We were very blessed and only had a few light sprinkles during the party. Carson thoroughly enjoyed himself and went non stop the entire time!

We had 33 adults and 15 kids crammed into our house during the food, cake, and presents. During the "Happy Birthday" song, Carson smiled at all of us while we sang, and then clapped for us when it was over. So cute!! He definitely did not need us to show him how to dig into his smash cake. He went for it, and was covered in minutes!

The party was a hit and everyone enjoyed themselves...especially the birthday boy!
