Since Mr. Calvin will be turning 1 on Thanksgiving Day this year, naturally we had to plan his birthday celebrations around the holiday, so we decided to go before.
Brian has a lot of family up in Cleveland, and especially out of consideration for limiting how much his grandma would have to travel, we decided to have a separate little party up there, on November 9. Brian's Aunt Linda was kind enough to host the shindig for us, and it was lovely spending some time with everyone. Thank you to all the Cleveland family for being there, and for the great gifts!
His local party was just this past Saturday, November 16, at our house. We had a very good turnout - our house was nearly bursting at the seams! We were delighted by all who came and shared in the fun. Calvin got a lot of awesome gifts, for which we are grateful. He loves all his new toys, and I love all his new clothes! :)
It was a lot of work getting everything prepped and ready to go, but in the end it was all so worth it. I was so pleased with how it all turned out, and we had a blast celebrating our happy little birthday boy!
