Celebrating Hudson!!!!

Saturday afternoon was spent getting ready for my sweet Hudson's first birthday.
Can you believe he's going to be ONE?!?!? I know I sure can't.

His actual birthday isn't until Friday,
but we celebrated Saturday evening with a family cookout in our backyard.

I enjoy doing BIG parties, but every once in a while it's nice to do a simple party.
Saturday was just that--simple, but oh so sweet!!!

We enjoyed hamburgers, hot dogs,--all the fixin's, and twice baked potatoes
(Shane's request)!

Sweet Hudson really enjoyed his cake. I wasn't sure how he would do, but it didn't take him long to figure it out and he dug right in!

Sophie gets her a bite of Hudson's cake too--with a little help from Grandma, of course.

We sang Happy belated Birthday to my sweet sister B too!

The kids had a blast playing outside on the swing set.

Sophie lu and Auntie KK!

My brother, Steven, brought along his two puppies. They are always the life of the party.
Sophie and Jake enjoyed feeding the pups some left over hot dog.

Hudson with his great-grandparents.

Shane and his boys! LOVE this pic!!!!

Oh are loved more than you could ever imagine!!!
I thank the Lord every day for giving you to our family and choosing me to be your mommy.

Happy 1st birthday little one!

"I praise you
because I am fearfully
and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well."
Psalms 139:14
