One-year birthday brings big celebration
Placeholder Image
The biggest event in our beautiful valley this past week was the birthday celebration that Jordan and Nicole Cripps had at their country home Saturday, June 1, honoring their little son, Christian Cain, on his first birthday.As they entered the house invited guests signed a “birthday message” in the Dr. Seuss Birthday Book.Children present to share this nice occasion with Christian were Brandon Kent of Lascasses, Brantly Alexander of Sparta, Sawyer Hendrix of Dowelltown, Owen Cripps of Murfreesboro, Levi Reynolds of Alexandria, Brody Royalty and Brayden Tubbs of Lebanon and Arsyn Enderie of Nashville.Jordan and Nicole opened and displayed the many useful toys, clothes and monetary gifts.Delicious refreshments were prepared by Christian’s family and served the guests.This had been a long day for these toddlers, but they were all in a circle enjoying every minute when one by one they were taken up from the circle. It was time to go home.At the end of the party, Christian grabbed his night blanket, laid his little head on it and continued to walk around in circles, too tired and too young to know that he was one year old and that today he had been fortunate enough to have had so many people who loved him and attend his birthday celebration.Congratulations go to this sweet little boy who never sees a stranger and has such an outgoing personality and we wish him many more and may he have a successful life and become an outstanding useful citizen.After spending a week with Louise Frazier and family and visiting Doris Cantrell and family and Sue Blair and other relatives in Smithville, Wayne and Deborah Fuson have returned to their home in Cabot, Ark., where Wayne is retired from 24 years in the U.S. Air force and Deborah is a CPA working as an auditor for the state of Arkansas.
