happy birthday william!!!!

today william is 1 year old! happy birthday, william! this last year has been the most wonderful year because we've had william with us. he is such a fun, happy, and active little boy! william started taking his first steps about a month ago, and now he is just cruising everywhere, thinking he is so big and awesome. which he is :)
to celebrate will's big day, we had a birthday party. a NINJA birthday party for our little ninja. will was decked out with his ninja throwing star, sword, and nun-chucks. peter and i were decked out similarly as back-up for our ninja warrior, in case any samurais came to crash the party. honestly though, will wouldn't have needed any back-up. he's pretty stealth, wobbling around on those two legs, with that serious face of his. he'd scare off any intruders.



to help us celebrate, we had lots of ninjas from neighboring clans come over. they were perfect guests and william had a blast. so did we :) we love being with our family and friends.






here are a few shots of our ninja decorations . . .





here are two of our best ninja warriors, waiting to defend william from any enemies. thanks, lucas and dad, for the extra protection.

will wasn't quite sure what to make of his birthday cake. he didn't really dig in, like a lot of kids do. instead he carefully checked it out first and was wary of the first bite, like a true ninja.

we also had fun chatting, catching up with everyone, and everyone gave will lots of hugs and cuddles. william sure is loved--thanks everyone for helping us celebrate! and happy birthday, again, will! we love you!!!!

Happy Birthday, Will! You are such a cutie.

Darling decor too :)

Emily, for a second I thought you had cut and colored your hair that dark. It is a wig, right?! Either way, super cute!

What a great 1st bd party for Will.
He seemed to like being a Ninja as he strutted around your house and yard celebrating. Emily and Peter, you certainly know how to throw a fun party. Will is a cutie!

That party looked awesome! I am sad we weren't there. Emily, did you do both sets of cupcakes? Look at you professional! That wig was actually pretty real looking too.

Ok, i guess Whitney and I were commenting at the same time, and now I don't know where my comment went.

Soo...Happy Birthday Will! Your party was a lot of fun.

Emily, your grandma is so cute in that ninja posing picture.

Will looked awesome in his getup and I loved the wreath.

Let's see, did I forget anything? Yay for being 1!

Christy said...

Totally ditto to everything previous...wreath, cupcakes, wig, Grandma Marg posing, and Will... all awesome! Especially Will.

My mom said that Nick and Kelly (?) moved into her ward. She'll take good care of those cute newlyweds.

Amy F said...

Very stealthy. What a fun idea. I love the wreath...

And maybe he didn't dig into the cake because it was black. Just sayin'... But it does look good!

You all make good ninjas. Great outfits. A preview of Halloween, perhaps???

What a cute party! Happy Birthday Will. You look cute with dark hair Em.

Kaedi said...

What an awesome party idea! And I cannot believe he is a year already! It seems like yesterday that we saw him all tiny and newborn-y -- barely the size of our turkey. And Emily, you seriously look hot with dark hair! :)

Happy Birthday, little Will!!

Elise said...

Sarah said...

damn....i was hoping that wasn't a wig.

Stephen said...

The Olsens said...

OMG!!! We were freaking out about your hair. We were unsure if it was real or a wig. So we read the comments and decided it is a wig?! Still unsure?! It looks awesome though! Anyways we so wish we could have been there and you here at Londy's. It seems wrong that the betrothed could not celebrate each other. It's sad really. We miss you guys!! Oh and the party looked off the hook!!! Awesome!!!! So no update on our blog because we don't have the freaking Internet yet!!! So stupid! Thank goodness for the iPhone!
