Happy Birthday to Micah Moo!!

On January 30th, 2010, Micah turned 1. My heart melts for this boy! His actual birthday was on a Saturday. That morning Derek took him to get donuts. They were sweet and brought Parker and I back some. :) I want each one of my kids to have special daddy time the morning of their birthdays. That night we took the boys to Mighty Fine burgers and let them share a milkshake(they both got their own cups) and they LOVED it! Micah was giddy about it. I thought, people probably think I am a crazy parent letting my baby hold his very own milkshake. ha. I didn't care though. Micah's birthday party was on Sunday night. It was a family party plus our good friends Jason and Paige Martin(they lead worship at Free Chapel). That alone is 20 people.
The theme of the party was cow print. We decided that because everyone in my family even Micah's cousins call him Micah Moo. :) His invitation had a cow on it and it was so cute! I ordered cow print plates, napkins, and cow footballs for the boys goody bags. We had cow print balloons already(courtesy of SquareCow). On all the goody bags I tied a "M"(for Micah) to it with spots on it. It said "thanks for coming to my party". We also had these really cool straws that had chocolate in them so when the boys drank their milk it tasted like chocolate milk with the straws. I, for some reason, got really into this party. We tried to have Micah's favorite foods for dinner and snacks. He LOVES fruit and it was a HUGE hit with the kids! I will definitely have fruit at all our other parties from now on. I ordered a cupcake cake from Sams. It was SO yummy! I have made Parkers birthday cupcakes before but I am HORRIBLE at icing them and I really didn't want to go through the hassle this year. However, I couldn't bare the thought of spending lots of money on a cake either. But Sams was a steal. I gave them a picture of a cow that they printed on top and it was edible. And I got 30 cupcakes, chocolate and white, for $16.39!!! And they tasted so good. Awesome deal!
We had such a great time. Micah hardly made a peep the whole party. All but two of our(me, my sister, and brother) kids are preschool age or younger. And they are really into birthday parties right now. They love them! Which makes it really fun to have them. I think they had a blast. I think Micah had fun doing his own thing. He didn't get a chance to open anything because all of his cousins/brother did it for him. ha ha. Which is great with me and him because he doesn't know the difference. However, I almost got knocked over a few times. :) Micah loved his cupcake. I mean he LOVED it! He dug into it the minute he got it. He did not waste any time and of course when he got done we gave him a bath. The icing was black...which I thought might just stain his skin. ha ha. But it didn't. All in all the party was a hit and even though Micah never will remember it...we will...and we have pictures for him to see. :)

All of his presents minus his big boy bed from my parents(that he won't be in until he is two!) and his truck from Aunt Kimberly and Uncle Wade(sorry y'all...I forgot about it at that moment).

Everyone was cracking up at how big Parker's belly was at that moment. It was sticking out like crazy.

Harley Jane might be getting a tooth. Her tongue is sticking out all the time these days.

I LOVE his shirt. I ordered it off of Etsy. It is perfect.

Parker and Gray really like sunglasses. These are Gray's glasses on Parker.

My Dad sat with all the kids and ate his dinner. He had them laughing so hard. And what is funny is that he was hardly even doing anything. They think he is the funniest Papa ever!

Ty and Micah(he was frustrated with getting his picture taken at this moment)

This is a great picture of our birthday boy.

Yummy, cute, cake.

So, I know that cow's don't lay eggs. But, I thought it was cute anyways. The cow eggs are chocolate covered raisins. And the cow patties are reeses cups.

Ok, so I thought I did a good job on the "Happy Birthday Micah" sign. I do wish it showed up a little better, but I didn't have to buy anything for it. I had everything here which made me happy. The window pane was in Micah's room for decoration and I have been meaning to put pictures in it since the day he was born. So this was a great opportunity for me to get that done.
