Max's 1st Birthday

I know.  I know.  My son's first birthday was on the 15th of SEPTEMBER and I'm JUST NOW posting about it.  But hey, at least I'm posting about it! =)  I've been busy ok?!

As a reminder, Max's birthday fell on a Saturday which meant we were actually home and not in Bozeman for the weekend.  The morning of his birthday we took the kids to the Festival Days parade.  Festival Days is a pretty big deal for the town of Havre.  It's the biggest (if not only) parade of the year so we made sure to take the kids!  They had a blast!

The day of Max's birthday I ran all over town getting things ready for a party.  It was very much thrown together, but you know what?  It still looked great!  Max is definitely a boy in that he already makes motor sounds and drives cars on the floor/walls, so we went with a Cars theme -- even though the boy has never seen the movie.  Ha!

I loved all the colors we chose for the party.  It was very much Max!  As you can see from the pictures above, he LOVED his cake.  I hate to admit it, but he had two cupcakes.. and maybe a piece of someone else's cake..  He. Loved. Cake!

I cannot believe my son is already 1!  He is getting so big!  He is the best boy a mom could ask for.  Every morning I go to get him out of his crib and I'm greeted with the biggest smile and his arms outstretched ready for a big hug and slobbery kisses!  He is definitely a happy boy!

I am so thankful for each of my children.  They are such a joy to me -- I literally feel my heart swell with love and pride at the blessings God has given me!

Happy Birthday, Max!  Mommy and Daddy love you very, very much!


  1. I still can't believe he is 1 either. I remember those last few weeks leading up to him being born. It goes by way too fast. Can't believe the twins will be 1 in 2 months. :(

    1. Amy, I cannot believe your twins are already going to be 1! Time flies for busy mommies, huh? =)
