Greyson's official birthday was December 9th, 2011.
We planned a big party with all the family during the week of Christmas because most likely this is the only birthday party my parents & family will get to attend. They usually don't come to our house in December, but these last 2 years have been extra special. The first time was when Greyson was born & my mom stayed 3 weeks & left the day before New Years...this year they came specifically for G's birthday party but we set the date for the week of Christmas so my brother & his wife would be off off work. It worked out quite well!
Of course we had a mini party on his real birthday because I just couldn't let the day go by without some recognition.
His birthday fell on Sunday, so we he got all dressed up for church. Then we went to Mimi & G'pa's house for dinner & to celebrate Greyson & Uncle Ben's birthdays. Uncle Ben's birthday was on Monday, Dec. 10th.
Greyson thought it was so funny that Uncle Ben's candles wouldn't blow out...=)
Then it was time for Greyson's little cake...he really dug into this one!
He was more interested in roaming around than opening some of his birthday presents, but we got lots of cute things that went along with his big birthday theme...Sock Monkeys!
We just can't believe Greyson is already 1 year old...it seems like these months just flew by & he has grown into quite the little man =)
It was a good "mini" party celebrating the day he was born!
