Ammon's 1st Birthday Celebration

We had so much fun watching our baby turn one:) We went with a jungle theme for our little family celebration because Ammon loves to ROAR:) I made a lion face out of an 8 inch round pan and then baked cupcakes that I had Aubrey & Ella decorate with swirls to make the lion's mane. It turned out pretty cute! I'm no expert but it looked kinda like a lion, so I think it was a success:) I found the idea online here-I can't take credit for the idea! I've actually realized that I don't have any original ideas anymore...the internet is my brain. lol. Anyhoodle, Ammon enjoyed chewing his blower and his plate. And then tasting his chocolate cake. And drumroll please.....chocolate cake is not his favorite food. Wha?? How can he be my son?? :) He has never disliked anything really. He is not a picky eater but he made some pretty funny faces when he was eating his cake. And then he threw half of it on the floor...to Zac's delight...which lasted 2 seconds before we had to put the dog in the crate-no chocolate for doggies Zac! Geesh. Anyways, after cake and icecream we helped Ammon open his gifts. Everybody had the same idea for Ammon this year-lots of cars! He LOVES them all! Hes all boy and his Daddy sure is having fun playing with him:) And his Mommy is having fun watching-such a sweet sight to see Joey play with his son. LOVE it. Oh and one really neat thing about Ammon's birthday was that the grandmas got to be part of it thanks to Google Talk. Nana watched as we sang Happy Birthday and he ate his first cake. And Grandma got to watch him open his presents. Modern technology is pretty rad like that!!




And I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking...















































































Had to include this picture because I look so nuts. I love sharing my crazy pics with you.






Happy 1st Birthday Ammon boy!! We love you so so so so so so much!

Great photos.. he looks like he was having a blast! He's getting so big. But he doesn't like that one flavor of cupcake that's for sure.
