Happy Birthday Baby

So, this post confirms the reason God created bakeries. Well, we tried. Look forward to Ashton's 1st birthday (the remix) once he's home when we'll have a cake that doesn't look like blue frosting and store-bought letters come dangerously close to duking it out with the only winner being the lone #1 in the corner that eventually melted because it took us so long to take the darned picture. We'll figure it out, eventually, maybe, or not, but there will ALWAYS be lots of frosting and tons of candles and ridiculous amounts of laughter. Bring it on.

The final product

What it took to get to the final product (We had a huge tub of Christmas sprinkles left over but of course only the red and white would be appropriate for this occasion. Only a Daddy would pick out the green sprinkles for his boy's first birthday!)

The final product lit

And enjoyed...happy birthday baby.

And just to stay true to form... 1 week 4 days TOTALLY kicks 1 week 5 days butt!!

That truely is a sweet cake. What a great mom and dad.
I sure do hope that it works to meet you when you come to MN. That would be great.
We are keeping our fingers crossed and praying for you for a successful court date.

There! I sang you happy birthday my sweet one - and you'll hear me sing it every year of your life (and mine), but I can't wait to do it in person with you in my arms. Lots of love, Gamma

The love oozed out of this post!

Grandma Tull and I celebrated as well. She sang Mike the Dutch Happy Birthday son song on Sunday and we prayed for your new family and all the people who are working so hard to make this happen!

Can't wait to throw a Campanaro birthday party next year! Mom C

Why is it that your blog always makes me hungry?! The nice thing is, you have a few years to practice before the little one even notices what the cake looks like! (but I thought it looked great!)
