This weekend we had the honor of celebrating a handsome little man's first birthday.
I love a good birthday celebration, especially when it is someone as sweet as Ephraim.

I got to help do a bit of the decorating and made these pom poms.
Thanks, Pinterest!

I am also thankful that we were able to stay for the party and not take a little trip to Patient First for some stitches. Jack managed to break a glass and cut his thumb pretty deeply. He bleed all over the house till he found us. Strong little man did not even cry, just held up his bloody hand. The good news was that there were a few NICU nurses attending and they helped us bandage him up. Poor little guy lost a bunch of blood and passed out on his Daddy and slept through the whole birthday singing!

Colin enjoyed this party. He managed to sneak not one, but two cupcakes. He holed himself up in a corner and pretty much demolished the first one. The second one was caught sooner and he made a mad dash away from mom, but lost that little battle. I am pretty sure we cleaned chocolate cake out of his neck folds that night.

Of course, while we celebrate Ephraim turning one, we remember that two boys were born that day.  Sweet Elisha blessed us with 4 1/2  months of his little life and is dearly and deeply missed.

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, what are some of the things that you are thankful for?

What a brave little boy Jack is. My son freaks out when he see's blood. And Colin is such a cute cupcake monster :)
