Christopher turned one on Jan. 25th. So we had a party at home for my family. He had a Batman cake, and lasagna for dinner. Daddy, Mommy, Evie, and Christopher were here of coarse. Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Isaac, Aunts Abbie, Racheal, Haley, and Ashley were here also. Ashley brought a friend over. It was a little crowded in our 2 bedroom apartment, but it was fun. Daddy worked the night before so he slept until cake time.
My mom's birthday was a few days before so we bought her a game called whonew (I think). We all played that after dinner it was fun. The kids played a lot. Evie and Christopher got a ride on train for Christmas, that they haven't been able to play with much. So Racheal and Isaac set up the tracks and helped them play with it. Christopher loves it, but he can't hold down the button to make it go. He was so excited that they helped him ride the train. Evie is slightly afraid of it. However, the kids brought over their Nintendo DS' which Evie loved. They let her play some game. She couldn't really do it, but she had a blast all the same.
When it was time for cake we turned off the lights and sung happy Birthday. Christopher cried. I don't think he knew what to think of all the attention. It was funny. I had to take him out of his highchair and hold him for a minute. He isn't that into cake anyways. He did eat some. He wanted to play more than anything. He actually unwrapped some presents finally. We bought him some super hero cars that go after you shake them up. Evie liked those to. He also got some mega blocks, diapers, an umbrella (that Evie quickly confiscated, so mommy had to hide it), and some money that we put into his bank account.
It was so much fun. The best part was having all of my family together. Except my 17 year old brother who is apparently to cool for us. He was mad a our parents for "ruining his life" so he didn't come. I was mad about that, but got over it. All in all it was a good party. Evie and Christopher were so excited from everything that despite being extremely over tired at the end of the party it took me forever to get them to fall asleep.
