Double Birthday

On Saturday, October 11 th we celebrated two birthdays at our house. Andrew turned 1 on the 11th and Luke turned 7 on the 12th. Luke didn't mind having a shared celebration, and I was grateful. He chose a Batman theme for the party. We had cheeseburgers, hashbrown casserole and baked beans for dinner. Dessert was a Batman cake with chocolate ice cream.

This was Andrew's first experience feeding himself cake. At first he squished his fingers in it. He wasn't quite sure how to get it to his mouth, so at one point he actually put his head down on his plate!

He finally got the hang of it.

Luke received a wooden race car to paint, a football, a soccer ball, a Buzz Lightyear and a set of UT football players.

Andrew received clothes, shoes, bib, sippy cups and a toy. I told Brian he probably had the most boring first birthday of any of our children. When you are one and have six other siblings, you just don't need much. I hope he will experience the same thing with his own family some day.
