Happy Birthday Patrick!

It would be ironic that the next post was one about the kids, but oh well!  We celebrated Patrick’s birthday last weekend.  It’s hard to believe that he is one year old now.  Time flies!

We had chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting, with cupcake liners and sprinkles that were picked out by Liesl and Isaac.  Of course, their original choices were pink flower cupcake liners (Liesl – they’re my favorite color!), and Halloween sprinkles (Isaac – I like these!).  We settled on red liners and multi-colored sprinkles.  We sang ‘Happy Birthday’ on skype with Grandmother and GrandDan.  It was so much fun, we reprised it again the next night for Nana and Pops!

For those awaiting a ‘Patrick walking’ video, we haven’t caught him on camera yet.  This is not for a lack of trying!  Right now, he’ll take a few steps and then drop to crawl.  And when he sees the camera, he gets so excited he drops down and crawls right over!
