Happy Birthday Houston!

I can't believe it, but a whole year has gone by since Houston was born. We had a blast cramming everyone into our small apartment to celebrate this last Saturday. We had a wonderful time, and we're so glad that our family was able to be there. Happy Birthday Little Man!!Opening all his loot!! The kid made out like a bandit!!

Am I Surprised? Not Really.

With a little help from captions, I'll let the pictures tell the story. Please note, this all happened within about 3 days. He had to shred each little piece, too... The look of a job well-done. The trash bags! And Mom's cookbook... that he pulled off the table. The look of a job well-done. Oh, AND the Q-tips. Oh, and another look of a job well-done!!
