Pip's 1st Birthday Bash

Video #1, Pip starts crooning with us while we're singing ♪ ♫ Happy Birthday ♪ ♫ to him.

Video #2, Pip tearing into his birthday cake.






Here's how in went down in pictures:

Photobucket
{Remember Debbie? Yeah, she made this adorable bear cake for Pip. She makes all my kids' birthday cakes. She volunteers. She's awesome! Everyone needs a Debbie neighbor.}

Photobucket
{Pip joining in a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday (to him).}

Photobucket
{Cute little one-year-old.}

Photobucket
{Pip gets an ear to mangle.}

Photobucket
{Pip let me suck all the cake off his fingers; thus, my messy face.}

Photobucket
{Bugga trying to convince us that cake makes you strong.}

Photobucket
{Buddha approves the fare. Home run, Debbie!}


Oh, the faces of Pip!

I laughed so much at both video clips. He is sooo funny singing away and crushing his cake. Your neighbor is amazing to make such awesome cakes. You are lucky. The mug shots are the best. I need them all. Mom

Oh, oh how sad I am to miss his 1st birthday!! He is just adorable...such a sweet chunky baby. I love him. :) Thanks so much for the pictures and the play-by-play. It makes this far-away sis happy.

WHAT?!? He's a year already? I guess it doesn't help that I've not been around for it, but really? Happy birthday!
