Jackson's 1st birthday Party

From here:

to here in ONE YEAR

It was wonderful to celebrate with our friends. I spent alot of time thinking about what began a year ago today and it brings tears to my eyes to see how far our little guy has come in a year. He has amazed us all including the doctors this last year.

a bean bag toss...(corn hole) tourney....we went with cupcakes...instead of was fun to decorate them with little ones all over them. and much easier to handle outside.

check this out. we didn't put any in our mouth but we sure smashed it on our tray and had a lot of fun making a mess. gotta say we didn't expect much more. it was cute. thank you to all who celebrated with us in spirit from far away and have sent us encouragement and support over the last year. it is so much easier to stay upbeat about it all when you know you have your friends and family there to support you and lift you up in prayer. I am sure this next week will be emotional as we remember all that we have been through over the last year.

thanks again everyone....thanks for celebrating with us.
