Party Time

It was Thomas’ 1st birthday party on the weekend and we all had so much fun. We had it in our backyard with friends and family. My sisters and their partners along with some of our dear friends from Melbourne also made the trip. It was just a perfect weekend. It was one of those weekends that made Andrew and I think about how lucky we are to have so many great and fun people in our lives. Nothing like a good ol’ party to bring out all the feels.

The standout of the day was Thomas’ birthday cake. It was the most incredible cake I have ever seen. Obviously it was of Toby and his Neckerchief since Toby is not only Thomas’ favourite thing in the whole wide world but also his best friend and brother. Toby has been such a big part of Thomas’ life and it only made sense to point this out by having a Toby cake. I just couldn’t get over how amazing it was and the fact that it actually looked like him. I’m still thinking about it every other minute.

Here are some photos from Thomas’ party:

THOMAS 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY47^ Thomas didn’t cry this time when 60 people sang Happy Birthday. He did look worried most of the time but no tears. We practiced singing Happy Birthday to him all week in the lead up to his party.

THOMAS 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY46^ I didn’t actually want to cut the Toby cake and even said to Andrew, maybe we could just keep it in the freezer, forever.

THOMAS 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY44^ Toby was such a social butterfly the whole day, most of the time we couldn’t find him when we wanted to take photos.
