Bodie Charles Shives celebrated his first birthday with family at his home on January 16. Bodie enjoyed a piece of his big, yellow fish birthday cake and a spoonful of homemade grapenut ice cream. He got his first set of golf clubs, a new swing for the front porch and a colorful book of nursery rhymes. Bodie likes to look at books, unload the dishwasher and play with his younger cousin, Sy.
