A Birthday Party for our Little Pumpkin!

Saturday October 8, 2011 we celebrated Wyatt's birthday a little early!

We rented the friendship hall and playground at our church, St. Paul's United Methodist Church for Wyatt's party. We could not have had better weather. Wyatt was ready to party, as he had been such a big boy and took a 2 hr 15min nap prior to his party! 
Happy Birthday to our Little Pumpkin!
Wyatt's cake was made at Giant in Etown and decorated by Ashley- she's awesome. We also purchased pumpkin cupcakes from Cathy Adams. She has been making cupcakes as a fundraiser for a family raising funds to adopt a little boy. 
Since he is so mobile, he spent a little time in his portable crib so we could set up the room! He loved his balloon!
The pumpkins are ready to be decorated!

Pumpkin pinata! 

Run for the chocolate!

Getting ready for cake
First experience with cake and icing!

This pumpkin cupcake looks interesting....

Hmmm, I guess I will pose for a photo.
What happens if I turn it upside down?
Icing tastes good

It tastes really GOOD!
Mom took the candy pumpkin off, now I got this!

I really like this icing...

Forget table manners, I'm going for it!

I've been practicing with fruits and veggies for this!

They moved me inside so everyone else could enjoy the cake and I could finish mine.

Wyatt enjoyed trying to figure out what he was suppose to do with his gifts. We caught a few that he opened on the camera. His expressions are priceless.

g-paw Ron (a dear friend from church) had, in my opinion, the best wrapping job!
It was the perfect size for Wyatt to explore!
g-paw Ron's daughter knitted Wyatt a hat and mittens! 

Wyatt will learn about Recycling from  Parker

I think Wyatt will love trains!

Wyatt loves Karen
 After the party Karen had the idea to gather all the left over balloons for a photo op! I am so glad she thought of this- she got some awesome photos!

Two boys exploring

We said goodbye to the balloons to end the day

The day was such a special time and it went by so fast! We wish our families could be with us for this special day, but we were so blessed with our local friends and church family. A special thank you to all who were able to attend. Thank you so much to Karen and Lloyd who helped with set up, photography, clean up, and just being there for support.  We couldn't have done this without you. To our family, we could feel your thoughts and knew you were here in spirit!

With love,
Matt, Rebekah, and Wyatt
