Zoom over to Kale's Party!

We had Kale's first birthday party this weekend and it was so much fun! I went with a little red car theme. My friend Jamie was awesome and helped me design the invitations and the graphics. I couldn't have done it without her! ---and I know for some people this is going a little overboard, but I really like throwing parties and I wanted to have a nice one for Kale. 
Also there are like 30 pictures. These are pretty much for my mom who wants to see everything!

This area was the "Auto Body Shop" where we had little wooden cars that they could color with markers.

This area was the "Speed Race Way". We had two different little race tracks that they could race cars down. Tim built this white one. The kids had a lot of fun racing cars. (I took all the pictures before the guests got here! I swear people came!)

Here was his twelve month banner sign. 

Here was the food table...

 AKA the "Fueling Station"!

Wall Pictures. 

I had my friend from Ventura make these cakes. Another friend from Ventura was coming up for the party so she brought them up. They turned out great!

The "Stop and Go Fruit Combo"---it was all red, green, and yellow fruit. Also, I made this fruit dip from Our Best Bites that has toffee in it. SOOO good!

Haha don't laugh at my artistic skills! Or lack of...!

For the thank you things, they got a sucker and a little garage with a toy car in it. The top of the garage says, "Thank you for rolling with us"!

Kale was ready for his nap at the time the party started, so he was tired the whole time. He was pretty hesitant at first with his smash cake, but he got the hang of it pretty fast!

There were quite a few little girls and they wanted to dress up in the princess dresses.

Kale's little outfit had a car on it and I didn't even take a picture where you could see it. 

Thanks to all of our friends who came to support us and brought Kale such awesome presents! 
I think it turned out pretty good!

Happy Birthday Kale!

Well, my little guy is one year old. Sad! I can't believe he is already one! Here are some things about Kale:

 He is such a sweet little boy. 
He loves to snuggle. 
He lights up whenever Mylin comes into the room. 
He is into everything. 
He loves cars and can entertain himself with them for a long time.
He is really good about picking up toys and putting them in the toy baskets. (Even better than Mylin!)
He eats pretty much everything except for kiwi's.
He is adventurous and tries to climb everything (especially at the park).
He still has 6 teeth (four top, two bottom).

At his appointment he measured:
Weight: 22 lbs 12 oz (50%)
Height: 30 1/2 in (50-60%)

He wasn't feeling super great and when we went in for his 12 month appointment, we found out he has double ear infections (which he also had over Christmas) and wheezing in his lungs. So he is on medicine for the ears and has to do a breathing treatment thingy for the wheezing. Poor kid. What a first birthday!

He loves this toy that my mom and dad got him for Christmas. He will stand there forever putting cars down it. 

He already tries to wrestle Mylin!

For his birthday I decorated the house with balloons and streamers and he (and Mylin) were both so excited when they woke up!

 Birthday Breakfast.

We went out for donuts and then to the park on his birthday. He devoured his donut! Then we went to Disneyland after naps. 

We had a great day and we sure love him! Happy Birthday little man!
