Party in the House!!

On Sunday, we celebrated Joshua’s first birthday with a little get-together at home.  There were five babies born to a group of us in 2010 – four boys and one girl.  The boys – Micah, Josiah and Jaden – all came to celebrate.  Simone was doing a world tour with her parents in Mozambique.  Hopefully next year her travel schedule won’t be so hectic.  🙂

It was a great party; all of the babies had a wonderful time – there really wasn’t a fusser among them (that means they have great mommies.  Ok, ok – the daddies are good too – smile).  The adults had a wonderful time watching the little ones have fun.  🙂

We’ve got video footage (above) of the blowing of the candle and cutting of the cake, featuring our three sons – Johann, Jalen and  Joshua.  Then we’ve got stills (below) from throughout the afternoon.  I must apologize for my video – you’ll notice the chandelier blocks Vaughn’s face most of the time.  That’s because several of my guests went and stood in the most vantage spots, then wanted to complain when I wanted to stand in front of them.  I’m sure they’re planning to send me copies of their unblocked footage.  😉

A note about the music – both Jalen and Joshua love Jack Johnson, though they only know his music from the Curious George soundtrack.  Still – they’ve got good taste.  🙂
