Birthdays are awesome

Hey everyone guess what???  I turned 1 year old this last weekend.  This was kind of a big deal because no one really knew if I would make it to this point or not. (duh… I knew it wouldn't be a problem, I wish they would listen to me)  I had the COOLEST party ever with all my friends out in Omaha.  On top of that I got to share my birthday with friends across the entire country.  Here in Omaha we lit off over 150 chinese prayer lanterns (they are the cool sky lights that you see in my favorite movie Tangled) and a lot of prayers were said for all my other angel baby friends. Another 150 lanterns were lit off from California to New York.  Mom says that all of our prayers that were said while lanterns were being lit will be felt by people all over during this Christmas season.  The lanterns were soooo cool, these pictures don't do them justice.  As far as you could see, there were lanterns floating around.  I LOVE to look at lights, so I really loved this.  One of the coolest things though, is that if you drove 1 mile away from where we live, it was so foggy you couldn't see more than a few hundred feet.  My angels knew that this was important, and made it clear just around my house.  Thanks!

After that, a lot of people came over and ate donuts and drank hot chocolate with me.  I got to meet sooooo many awesome people as well as hang out with some friends I haven't seen in a while (like both grandparents that came out for the party).  And guess what, I ate real food for the first time ever.  Daddy let me lick this really yummy black stuff off of a donut, and I loved it.  Then he rubbed in all over my face and I got to try and lick it off.
I had so much fun getting all the attention.  Everyone wanted to hold me and say hi.  I don't think I have ever been that happy.  It was so much fun, I didn't even feel any pain or have any problems during the entire party.  I am going to post a few pictures, but I'm trying to round up some more, so stay tuned and I'll post more.
Also, I have been traveling around the last month and will tell you all about my recent travels soon.

Mommy and Daddy decided to light off these lanterns to help all of my angel friends, and others in need.  The lanterns are called "chinese wishing lanterns" and you are supposed to say a prayer or make a wish as you light them off.  So many people have prayed for me over the last year that they decided there would be no better way to kick off the chrismas season by directing our prayers towards those in need.

If anyone else has pictures of lighting your lanterns we would love to see them.  Please send them to me at fighterjettboseman@gmail.com.
