Birthday bash!

On Thursday, we got to finally celebrate Landon's first birthday with all of our family. We decided to have soups for dinner since the weather was cold. We had soups, rolls, cinnamon rolls, and of course, cake and ice cream. After dinner, we opened gifts and Landon got some really fun new toys and some really cute clothes.  After gifts, the bigger kids hit open a pinata and then we had cake. It's so awesome to be able to have so much family around to gather with during these special times. We are so grateful for all they do for us and for all their love! Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated Landon turning one!

Uncle Jason got the party started by bringing three huge angry bird beach ball guys! The kids had a blast with them!

Opening gifts. Landon had lots of help from his older siblings and cousins to make sure he got the job done in a timely manner.

Taking in the craziness.

Stetson giving it a swing.

Carson's turn. He was able to smack it open on his second swing.

Yay candy!

Landon's smash cake.

My sister joined us from Logan via face time. Landon kept talking to her while he was eating.

Starting to dig in!


Yummy cake!! By the time he was done with it, there was NO shape left to it. Just a mound of cake and frosting.

What a fun day. Lame attempt on the pinata...I think not! Jackson was jealous of the angry birds!
