We celebrated Clark’s first birthday on New Years Eve with a party. We tend to keep birthdays pretty low-key with family only parties but I like to do something a little special for their first birthday. It helps that Clarks birthday is on New Years Eve, which just feels more festive.

We had a few friends over, and some family drove down from Fergus too. We don’t exactly live in a convenient location for anyone and I so appreciated everyone who made the drive.

Clark willingly gives Daddy kisses, but rarely bestows one upon me. I do love their special bond though.

I didn’t get a very good picture of the cake, but my friend Alicia made it. It is a fox and it was so adorable. Smith ate part of the ear and the white off the tail before we actually cut it, but you can’t really tell in these pictures.  IMG_3649 copy IMG_3654 copy IMG_3668 copy

What?! Is that a family picture of all of us?!
