Joel's first birthday

Is it possible? One whole year ago...

This little guy joined our family.

See how he's grown!

(Notice the curl in his hair? We took care of that today...)

There's the Birthday Boy!

We had little party with just us and the pastor and family.

Daniel grilled some burgers and hotdogs, and of course there was CAKE!

"Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday Baby Joel, Happy birthday to you!"

Hello, what's this?

Where have you been all my life?

More cake.

Still eating cake.

Looks like he's starting to feel the effects of cake.

Okay, enough of that. Let's move on to the next event... the Haircut!

No more baby look. Happy birthday, Big Boy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Joel!! We love you (even though we've never met you)!!!!

Bro. Daniel said...

That's my boy! Joel Daniel you are a blessing and a joy.

We had a great time even though it was such a small gathering!

They do grow up so quickly, don't they....sniff...

Tammy said...

How cute! Time goes quicker than you can know. Wait til they are high school and college age! It won't be long til I am an empty nester!

Tori said...

Oh, he's so big Tammy! Looks like a wonderful time and that cake was sp nice.

BTW, is the 1 year shave a tradition? I tend to go for the locks, but he's adorable with or without them.

So when is the next one due?

Annette said...

I was also wondering when the next one is due LOL

Tammy said...

I can't believe y'all! Just so you know, we are not expecting a baby.

...At least, as far as I know...
