Asher's First Birthday Party

    Asher turned one year old on August 21st, and the following day, Daddy and Mommy threw a birthday party for him. The following are some of the pictures taken at the party. Some of the pictures were taken by Uncle Kevin or Aunt Karie, a few were taken by Nolan, who is only six years old (a budding photographer) and the rest were taken by Gramma Susie.

    When the cake was finished, Daddy took Asher in to clean him up and to change his shirt. When they came back out, it was time to open presents! A gift was opened - two darling onsies with great sayings on them that Daddy and Mommy really loved - family joke for them! Gramma got down the porch steps just in time to see the onsies! Next was a large bag stuffed with lots of tissue paper, stuffed on purpose for Asher to pull out. He pulled out two aqua colored sheets, and there was the card. Daddy opened it up and gave the card to Asher.

    Asher showed the card to Mommy and wouldn't put it down, so as he stepped away from Mommy, Alida took it and laid it down on the aqua paper.

retrieving card

After Alida laid the card down, Asher walked over and squatted down to pick the card up. It was his card and he liked it! It had a brightly colored caterpiller on it that looked similar to the caterpiller from Gramma and Grampa that Asher loved riding on earlier. Taken by Gramma Susie.

    Daddy and Mommy finally got the present out - a neat baby toy with plenty of activities on it. Asher dropped the card to play with it. There was another little outfit in the bag - long sleeved shirt and black jeans - for him to grow into! Last to be opened was the large envelope from Grampa, Gramma, Uncle Danny, Uncle Kevin, Aunt Karie and Nolan. It contained a savings bond for Asher. Daddy and Mommy were very grateful for it.

    The party continued with a couple of adults and some of the kids playing badminton, while Asher took a nap on Daddy's arm. Once he was asleep, Daddy took him inside to his bed.

    As the party wound down, we headed back to Sunnyland and for some supper. A great and fun time was had by all, and Gramma got to meet some friends of Daddy Timm's that either she and Grampa had heard about, or had met many years before!
