The last couple of weeks have been really busy with life and work. Last Thursday we had a big day – we celebrated our 10th anniversary and Carter’s 1st birthday. It was great to share a milestone anniversary with our son’s first birthday. Definitely a day to remember! We celebrated with a little lake party – little as in both sides of the family, which makes for quite a house full. After weeks (or even months) of crappy weather, we got the perfect day. My favorite part was watching Carter get his first taste of chocolate cake. I had to convince him to try it, but once he got going, he just buried his face in it. As you can see from the first picture, Carter wasn’t sure about all these people in his house. He wasn’t crying, just a little unsure about all these people watching him.
More on the quilt centerpiece – My Mom makes each of the grandkids a birthday party quilt. Each year the people at the party sign the block for that year. She has made several now (see here and here), as this is her eighth grandchild. She designed this one and it’s one of my favorite quilts ever!
