Cullen's First Birthday

Dear Cullen,

     Happy First Birthday!  It was just a year ago that Aunt Amy and I threw your mommy and brother a "Big Brother" party to prepare for your arrival, and now it's already your first birthday!  My how time flies!  You have grown into a handsome little fellow with big blue eyes and gorgeous blond hair.

     Your first birthday party was a great event!  Your mommy and daddy worked hard preparing for your big day and all their hard work paid off.  Everyone had a blast celebrating with you!  Cody and his older friends played on the slip and slide while you and Brazos enjoyed pushing trucks and tractors around.  You were a hoot walking around in "bear-crawl" style.

     Your dad and Popo bar-b-qued pork chops for everyone and Nana made her special potato salad and spinach salad.  Then it was time for cake!  Your mom and one of her friends made you two very cute cakes that looked like Cookie Monster.  After we sang "Happy Birthday" to you, you dove right in.  I think you loved every bite by the look of the blue icing spread all over your face.  Your cousin Brazos really liked the cake, too.  That was his favorite part of the day!

     Next you opened all your presents.  Your mom, Aunt Kay, and Brazos all helped you tear into your gifts.  You recieved some really cool toys - a tricycle, a Lighting McQueen rider, and toys with lots of buttons and lights.  You even got some clothes and Cookie Monster shoes so you can start your new year stylin'.

     Your first birthday was amazing and I hope that one day you can look back on all the photos we took of you and know that you have been loved right from the start.  We are all excited to watch you continue grow into a terrific toddler, a cool kid, a smart teenager, and a handsome man.  The world is your's to explore!

                                                                                          Lots of love,
                                                                                          Aunt Bobbi Jo
