Snow Day

A few inches of snow + a saturday afternoon with absolutley nothing to do and nowhere to go = lots of backyard fun!

All bundled up in a snowsuit his daddy wore!

While technically, this isn't Blaze's first introduction to snow, it's the first time he can really enjoy it.

Tastes cold. I like it!

Helping daddy with the snowman.

After the snowman collapsed (was pushed over by a toddler), we turned it into a snow slide. Whee!

1 Year older and wiser too

Blaze had a birthday, shout hooray!
We decided to celebrate for a whole week and included a trip to Pennsylvania as part of the festivities, as well as a party here at home. Here are some of the highlights:

A holiday all about food? Blaze couldn't ask for a better way to kick things off.

We had 3! All full of presents, cake, and people that love Blaze. One even included a free tractor ride.
Blaze had such good manners, he read the cards carefully and said thank you with each gift!

Each time the situation was similar. Blaze started out cautious, only picking at the sprinkles or frosting. But once he realized that the stuff was good (or once he was sitting properly at a table, again manners!) he went to town eating as much as was put in front of him or anyone sitting next to him.

I think overall he likes the whole birthday thing. We are just amazed that the year went by so quickly! It's been incredible. We like the little guy a lot and can't wait to see what the next year brings.
