We celebrated Lucas's first birthday on Sat., Dec. 20 with lots of family. I decorated in a cowboy theme with red bandanna plates and napkins. I used red and blue bandannas to decorate and blew up several red and blue balloons.
Menu: BBQ sandwiches and chicken wings, potato salad, macaroni salad, baked beans, chips, and relish tray.
We started with presents around 4:30.
It took him awhile to get in the game so Lillian helped.
Lucas starts to figure out unwrapping.
Nathan is a quiet spectator.
The other birthday boy: Trace's birthday was the 21st.
The most popular attraction for Lillian, Lucas, and Cole was a wagon.
Crying when I took it away...
Our final event of the night was to visit downtown Guthrie and tour the Victorian Christmas Walk. I think it will become our tradition! Despite the 20 degree temps and a brisk north wind, there were several people and it was a festive way to celebrate the holiday. Lucas and Lillian were bundled up in the wagon for the trip around downtown.
