How we celebrated the big day

The morning of Jackson's birthday started off with a FaceTime call with Daddy so we could all wake up Jackson singing Happy Birthday!  He was all smiles the whole song, staring at his daddy on the phone.  His birthday was on Friday, which means preschool day for Ben.  So Jacky and I spent the morning running a few errands, which included lastly a trip to the donut store.  We had two of Ben's (and Jacky's) buddies over for a little b-day celebration, since they weren't able to make his party on Saturday.  After lunch we sang happy birthday to Jackson and Ben helped him blow out the candle to his donut cake.  Upon leaving Beau informed me that the party was boring!  Hey it wasn't the real deal kid give me a break. : )
Jacky looks like such a big kid in this pic.

After a good nap and after daddy got home we headed to GG's cake shop (have I mentioned that my mother-in-law opened up a Nothing Bundt Cakes store?)   We started this tradition with Ben's birthday this year and I think it will be such a fun memory over the years.  What can be better than visiting your grandma's very own cake shop on your birthday.  We got there right as the store was closing so Alisa was able to join us for a yummy dinner at California Pizza Kitchen and then we walked back to the shop to sing Happy Birthday once again to a cute platter of animal bundtinis.  Reminded me of a carousel.  Such a fun, simple family day to celebrate our little cutie turning one.  The next day we celebrated with even more family at Jackson's Winter ONEderland (post to follow).
