Bennett had two wonderful birthday Pool Parties..one in macon with the Mann's and one in Marietta with my side of the family.....we were blessed to share this day with family. It all runs together in my head as a wonderful memory...hence, the display of photos in no order.

The Mann Clan

The Great One Year Right of Passage....eating much Cake

The Birthday Cakes: Mrs. Mann decorated one and my mom let my niece and nephew decorate the other ones....both made with so much love and so yummy.

THE THEME: The Backyardigans...( its a cartoon..that Shannon loves)

Bennett getting into Shannon's presents...but dont be sad for him he had tons for himself....
I want to start a tradition where he gives a gift to the needy each birthday to understand the gift of giving and that its not all about him. I need to learn that its not all about him too....im in love with this stinker.

I CAN NOT believe that baby Bennett is ONE already! He is such a bundle of sweetness.....I think I need to get my Bennett fix here real soon. His little chunky legs in that ONEsie is way too cute- :pinch pinch:
