Adam Bradley Ellis is ONE!

I can't believe my baby is one already! He is such a big boy! We had a lot of fun planning his first birthday.
I wanted so badly to re-create a part of my first birthday. When I was growing up my mom always made the most amazing cakes! (One year I even had a Furby cake!) When I turned one she made a bear cake that was just my size and I wanted Adam to have the very same thing. So I borrowed my moms bear cake pans and got to work.
The big bear cake ended up being a pain. I had to bake 3 of them before I cried and cried saying I couldn't do it. I was about to go to the store and just buy a cake when Tyson came to save the day. Using his artistic skills he meshed the three disasters together to create a beautiful bear-like cake. He then helped me decorate and all was well!
We went full bear theme with the party. From the front door...
To the decorations inside...
Adam was happy to open all his gifts! He was so excited!
It was kind of hard to tell him to open the presents when we had been telling him "NO" to opening the gifts under the tree for Christmas! He was very confused. I guess that is my fault for having set up Christmas so early
Our families showed up and I feel like the party was a huge success!

We gave ABE his mini bear cake and he loved it!
At first we had to show him that it was for eating.
Then he really got excited.
So excited some frosting ended up in his eye!
But all in all I think he liked it.

The rest of us had some cake from the big bear that Tyson had helped me put together. 
All in all, I think my little man had a happy birthday!
