Cole is one!
I can't believe that my little nugget is already a year old. How time... goes fast... like a bird in the sky...
Last night, we had a little party at our house with our friends, the Binghams. (Incidentally, they have their own Cole, so it was a Celebration of Coles!)
Pizza and watermelon. So far so good.
Here's Grown-Up Cole, who just graduated from law school at the U! WOOHOO!!
And here are the older kids -- Weston, Katelyn, and Dawson. (Haha! I can't believe that Weston is one of the "older kids.")
And here's their new baby sister, Emma! OH MY GOSH THAT HAIR!!!!! I want to cuddle her and rub her fuzzy fuzzy head again.
Present time! The older kids were very good at "helping" Cole to explore his gifts.
Little cars. Sweet.
Bongo drums. Even sweeter.
And then for the cake! We wanted to honor both Coles:
The Coles were excited.
"Oooh. This is gonna be good."
"Oooh. OOOH! It IS good!"
"And now... how best to attack this piece..."
"Aw, thanks, Grown-Up Cole!"
"Yeah. Yeah. Keep it comin'."
"Y'know what. I'm just gonna dive in."
"OM NOM NOM!!!!!!"
"Okay, I'll make a funny face for ya, Mom."
"Oh man. It's so good. I just want to keep putting more and more in."
"Wait. It's GONE???"
"Oh, hang on. There's still some frosting that I can lick off my fingers."
"Okay. NOW I'm done."
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. CHUBBINS!!!
