Birthday Boy!

Happy Monday everyone!  Today I have an extra special post (and also potentially extra long), today is Henry's birthday!  It's a little hard to believe that he's one already.  He's turning into such a funny, sweet little man, he makes us laugh everyday.

To start, I'd like to show you what's become of all those hats.  I didn't count them, but I think there's around 50....

It was a little hard to get this shot without falling off the chair, hence the un-centred shot:

One last pic of what's become of the hats (at least temporarily):

We're going to move the whole hat-banner up to Henry's room as a kind of border, for now they're on display.

Now for some party pics:

I can't really take too much credit for the awesome-ness of all these things. All I really did was cut up the vegetables.  The rest is courtesy of my mother, two bakers, and my father's co-worker's wife.


What a lucky little man!  A few more party shots, then we'll get to his hat:

Not too sure about the cake:

Mostly just shovelling it into his lap:

Hanging out on his leafs chair with cousin T:

Cousin J:

Hat time at last!  He really did want to wear the hat this morning.  As GG said, he's one now, so he's got some attitude (but in the end he tolerated it):

Some new toys helped in the persuasion process:


Finally I got it off!:

I hope you enjoyed the look at our festivities.  I'll keep making hats of course, but probably not weekly.  Keep looking for updates, I promise there will continue to be some!
