Happy Birthday Asher McConnell Stevenson

My this year flew by. I still can't get over it.

Today is Asher's birthday. His very first. It's been very low key, but fun. Since Brian had to work this evening, we celebrated with family last night. Because I was using Brian's help for ideas on what kind of cake to make, he ended up volunteering to be the decorator. Unfortunately, I had to make an emergency supply of frosting when I didn't buy nearly enough, and I had only enough of the ingredients to make it a little on the drippy side. Still, although lacking the sharp edges we invisioned, I think Brian did a fabulous job.

Nobody had any gifts for him to open... yet at least. But Asher doesn't know the difference anyway.

Because today is actually his birthday, I thought I'd snap a few more pics. He was playing with Brennan at the time.

Happy Birhtday Asher! I think the cake turned out fabulous. My favorte thing about birthdays is trying to make an outstanding cake. Usually it doesn't quite turn out the way i invisioned it but I love it just the same.

Aw, it looks like you guys had a ton of fun - such a cute idea (and execution!) for the cake. Poor second-children always get the short end of the stick, I think. Will has yet to have a real birthday cake! (Shhh, don't tell him that.)

Clara LOVES the video, and sings along with it every time she watches it.
