Yes, Jackson's first birthday was so special that we had to have more than one party for him. The first party was with all of our friends at Wharton and Jackson's buddies from the Wharton Kids Club. We had cake and ice cream for the kids and Marty even learned how to make balloon animals for the kids (well, at least he could make a dog and a flower).
After we got to Sacramento for the holidays, we had another birthday party for Jackson so that he could celebrate with his family. He had another cake and was showered with attention and way too many gifts.
His cousins were more than happy to help take care of him.
