All-American Birthday

Our All-American Boy's First Birthday Party
Honoring Reece Allen Jackson (aka The Birthday Boy)
July 14, 2012
Rosalia, Kansas Community Center

All attendees were asked to sign Reece's commemorative birthday baseball when they arrived.

Grandma Jackson & Grandma Nana made this fantastic firecracker cake. The cake was red, white, and blue on the inside & out!

Here's the Birthday Boy's smash cake (more to come...).

Another view of the smash cake. In the background you can see one of Grandma Jackson's fabulous pies! She made an All-American-Apple & a Cherry pie to go along with the cake.

This is a banner Grandma Nana & I put together. It showcased a picture of Reece from each of his first 12 months.


Big Brother Garrett especially enjoyed "helping" Reece open his gifts.

Now Reece has his own album to match Big Brother's! Thanks, Aunt's beautiful!

Somebody looks like he's up to something...

Time for cake!

Reece started out a bit cautious...

...but then he recalled how much fun frosting can be! (see previous post)

I think he found the center of the cake!

I failed to get photos of the clean-up...but it took around 15 minutes just to get through the frosting! It appears that he enjoyed his day...I hope all his family & friends who were here did too.
