I debated about whether or not to even have a birthday party for Carter. With Hannah and Carter's birthdays being exactly one month apart and finding a weekend that works for family, I considered just picking a weekend in the middle to do both. But in the end I decided Carter's 1st Birthday should get its own attention, so we had at least a small party. The Monday following his birthday just because that's the day Kevin had off, unless we waited to wait 2 more weeks. My parents came down and Paul, Holly, and Claire came down. We had appetizer type foods, presents, and cake, and that was that!
