Happy Birthday Baby!!

Parker turned 1 this week on the 9th and we have been celebrating ever since. The morning of his birthday we made him pancakes shaped as a number 1. When I say we I mean I made the syrup Nathan made the batter and shaped the pancake. It was a tradition that his mom used to do with his family and he wants to keep it alive. Nathan LOVES tradition and this is a good one. Any excuse to eat buttermilk syrup is a good one for me.



After breakfast we opened presents. We tried to keep the presents to a minimum because he just got a lot from Christmas and our house is too small to hold a lot of presents. We gave him the little people farm and a key set so I think we did pretty good. And today we had a UNO themed family party where we had cake and ice cream. I was pretty nervous about the cake but I think it turned out pretty well. This is his invitation that Nathan made. Some of its upside down because we folded it but I think Nathan did a really good job.





Happy Birthday Parker!!!

We thought about him all week at our house and planned on calling but didn't get it done in the hurried events of the night. I can't believe he is one. Doesn't time go by fast? Megan made a collage of pictures of Parker for her binder at school. So he will go everywhere with her for the rest of the year. Happy Birthday Parker. We love you the Jerry Kidd's

aww, how cute! and what a great idea: parker's turning uno. love it. i remember spending the night at the young's as a "youngster" (ha ha) and shannon would make us mickey mouse shaped pancakes. fun times. i just make the regular old boring circular pancakes. maybe someday i'll step it up a notch- for now i'll just tell the kids they're shaped like the different planets.

Hello!

It is so good to 'find' you. Your baby is adorable - I was trying to remember the Harry Potter encounter we had, and finally did. It's crazy to think that you've had Parker (which I love his new face) since we last saw each other.
I'm so glad that things are going well for you.

heidi.
