We celebrated Grey's first birthday yesterday with all the family(local and some out of towners).  We had a good time and aside from a little fever that we have been passing around (I haven't gotten it yet), rushing out to the grocery store at about lunchtime after going to a friend's baby shower that morning, and making cupcakes 30 minutes before everyone got there, everything was great!  We were a little more "low-key" with Grey's gift.  If you'll remember Anna's first birthday gift (back when this blog was very young) was a outdoor climbing structure and slide.  Grey's not quite agile enough to handle something like that so we opted for a manly riding toy.  These photos are straight out of the camera, so please excuse the dark ones.  I was lazy.

Anna was a great helper opening presents and making sure Grey knew what he was getting.

This is one of his favorite balls that happened to surface from all the tissue paper.  Of course, it had to be throw.

Nana and Grey.


Papaw and Anna giving Grey some pointers on how to tackle the chocolate.

How 'bout a hole in the center with a spork?

He was pretty nasty and needed to be hosed off in the tub.
