Reid's 1st Birthday Party

On Saturday June 16th many of our wonderful family and friends gathered to celebrate Reid turning one.  With the tireless help of SO many, we pulled off a 1st birthday party just two days after moving in to our new home.  I'm so very grateful to all who provided their time and talents to make this day so memorable.  We truly missed those who weren't able to be here, but they were definitely with us in spirit.

BrandyLee & her sweet girls helped welcome the guests as they walked up to the house.

Reid's adorable birthday outfit was compliments of his Gruncle Joe who was definitely with us in spirit. Not only did Reid get his 1st pair of Tom's, but a child in need received a pair of new shoes as well.  Just typing that makes my eyes water. 

Thank you, Gruncle Joe!

Love your new home. I look forward to the day I get to visit you, your mom and dad at your new pad.

Michelle, thanks for the acknowledgment about the birthday outfit. It was very sweet of you. Why the change to the blue t-shirt? He looked cute in his birthday shirt...Gruncle Joe
