Ok, so the icing wasn't as thick as I would have liked and totally started melting off the cake and the cupcakes.
The leftovers now look so much worse than that bottom right one does here. (PS. The likeness to Mike from Monster's Inc. is unintentional).
About 95% of the presents are from his very generous two sets of grandparents.
Julia helping Max open his presents. Max wasn't very interested, so she ended up doing most of the work (which I don't think was work to her).
(Bryan took these pictures and didn't do the best job of getting everyone in them AND I forgot to get one of the whole group. Sad.)
So you know how everyone has those awesome videos and pictures of their babies burying their hands and faces into their 1st year birthday cake? Well, not us. Max had no idea what to do with this thing. Even after I put his fingers in the cake and made him eat it, he still did not want dig in and would only eat it if I gave him a piece.
This is the only way he would eat it on his own. He certainly did not have the reaction to chocolate that we were hoping for.
At least he liked it. (Though not enough to finish it, he was way too interested in getting out and playing with the girls.)
