Chisum’s 1st Birthday

Our family has so much to celebrate this year – one of the most important being Chisum’s 1-year birthday!

We decided on a nursery rhyme theme as we call Chisum, “Muffin Man”, so rightly, his party hat said, “I am the Muffin Man!”. :) We had “This Little Piggie Had Roast Beef sandwiches”, “This Little Piggie Had Cranberry Turkey sandwiches”, “Little Miss Muffet’s Curds & Whey”, “Mary Mary Quite Contrary Garden Veggies”, “Jack & Jill Went Up the Hill to Fetch a Pail of Watermelon”, “Three Blind Mice Cheese and Crackers” and “Muffin Man Cupcakes”.

The little Muffin Man had quite the throne (thanks to Papa Joe!). And he knew he was the center of the attention. He enjoyed eating in front of everyone, and when it came time for singing to him and giving him his cupcake, he was all into it. He ate the frosting off of the cupcake then, looked at us all, picked up the cupcake and stuffed it into his mouth!

All done!

Chisum was blessed with a lot of nice gifts and had fun opening them with his cousins’ help.

All of Chisum’s aunts, uncles and cousin’s were able to make it, along with both sets of grandparents, Great Grandpa & Grandma Bailey and the Riley family. Also our friends the Hastings and the Schulte’s joined us for lunch.


Afterwards, the kids got to swim – which was their favorite part of the party.
