Noah's 1st Birthday!

Wow, it kind of seems that we haven't posted anything to here in a while.  The main hard drive on our computer died, and we were in danger of losing all of our pictures in Iceland and most from the last half of 2013.  Fortunately I was able to work some magic and got them all back.  So we should now be able to catch up on some of the posts that we missed.

But our little guy turned 1 year old today!  We can't believe how much he has grown and this first year has really flown by.  To celebrate his big day we had a little party for him with the grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and his cousins.  We got some BBQ and baked some potatoes for lunch and we made some dipped marshmallows to snack on. 

Julie made a banner for Noah!
His favorite set of books are the Little Blue Truck books.  He will pull those out of a pile of books and sit politely until one of us reads them to him.  So Julie made some cakes in the shapes of trucks and we decorated them to look like the Little Blue Truck!  I don't know if Noah really noticed, but he seemed to like the cake once he figured out how to eat it!

He is a bit skeptical at first...
...but then he gets after it! 
He was unsure how to open the presents, but his cousins helped him out
And he had a great time playing with his cousins and all of his new toys
One of our neighbors' cars broke down, so he had it towed.  This grabbed the attention of the cousins for several minutes.

We had a great day and Noah had so much fun he slept for over 2 hours in the afternoon!
