now we are one

so this little boy turned one yesterday. One whole year, where did that go? Of course, a celebration was had...we being people who will celebrate almost anything. We have been known to throw a party for the opening of a room. on each of our kids' first birthdays, we have had a party in their honour, for which the guests have had to dress up as something beginning with the first letter of the kids' name. And so we have had an "f" party, a "w" party, and now a "j" party. Oh, so much fun. We had everything from j-lo to to julius caesar, a jellyfish and a jolly swagman, and even a jack-in-the-box. I was jemima, and dad took it as yet another opportunity to let out his inner bogan and dressed as joe dirt. So funny.

a good time was had, and at the end of it all, there was nothing else to do but this. He may be a big one year old now, but booby is still his best friend.
