Bits of Texas: Nathan's 1st Birthday!

In honor of tomorrow, the 25th, making my nephew another month older, I decided to share some heartwarming pictures from his first birthday party in June. I remember for months and months leading up to this big deal event, I'd gone over the emotion of it all it in my head and anticipated a show of water works; I'd cry just thinking about him turning a year old (!!) and how fast these last twelve months have gone by and how the three times I saw him last year were some of the most wonderful moments I'd ever experienced...but in the midst of being surrounded by such happy family members and friends, and Nathan making everyone laugh as we sang happy birthday to him, there was just no room for tears, not even the happy ones. Just smiles.
 My sissy ordered the cute Mickey Mouse treat boxes and personalized thank you cards from Etsy
She and I made all the Mickey-shaped rice crispy pops and cupcakes (+homemade frosting) together! 
 Not trying to be cute - whoever took the picture didn't give me a chance to swallow my food
 Siblings
 Mommy 
 Nathan's daddy
Brother's family (my neice, Makaila)
The following 2 [blurry] pics are screen shots from a 10 minute video Mikey took of the cake situation
Haha, he's like "What the hell just happened?!"
Oh, but he loved his smash cake. He was a beast! We are SO related. 
 "Hey! Bring that *bleeping* thing back!"
 Proud aunt & unckie to these two cutie pies <3
Sorry about the photo bomb. It was hard to select only a handful of my faves from a 200+ stash of happy stills.
Enjoy your weekend, pretties!

    1. hahaha omg, great caption!
      I know! I thought doing a Mickey theme was utterly adorable! Especially when there were a couple other babies dressed like Minnie Mouse. :)
      Thank you for the always-sweet comments, Dana ♥
