A first for everything...



Lots of work, but LOTS OF FUN!!! I love being able to have family over for special occasions. It makes the set up, cooking and cleaning all so worth the back ache!! I can't remember a bigger crowd singing Happy Birthday, it was great. Although Maddox is just one year old and won't remember a thing, the pictures will tell him the story every time he pulls out the scrap book! I attempted to make his cake this year, even though I prefer a Nothing Bundt Cake over any other cake for a party, I decided I'd try to be creative this time! It was fun to make and even better after it was all eaten up! Mark spent Saturday night smoking the brisket, and it was fantastic! His first attempt at it too! Maddox turned into our little pirate after he scarfed down his cake, all the kids were getting a kick out him making a mess with it. Thanks to our family who made it such a memorable day for Maddox and us!

I LOVE the cake you made! We had a cowboy party for Trey's first birthday. I made a horse cake, but it wasnt nearly as cute as that pirate ship!

Stacy, what a great cake! I know my kids LOVE looking back on their earlier birthdays and the big hullaballoo we made over them. It just makes them feel so loved and special. Having family around you is such a pleasure. Happy Birthday Maddox!
