So what do I love most about being mom! Birthdays! They were a miserably difficult experience to birth these wonderful children. I never thought I could ever go through that much pain and live through it, much less be so happy. I must say, God has a great since of humor. It is horrible to go through it once, but then to repeat the process. Hmm, must be a bit crazy. So I love each birthday, because I am having another year with my child and I can celebrate that I went through the worst pain I can imagine and survived! Wow! My body is amazing for its strength!
So this week is #1’s storybook character parade and it works perfect with our costumes anyways. So here is my little pig (1 of 3).
I still have 2 more pigs to make. The overalls were a pair I had made for #2. I added pink to the straps and the cuffs and was so thankful they fit here. My husband and I had it out trying to put the snaps on them (this goes back to having 2 engineers that live and breath together). I made the ears and tail out of felt and I used a good gauged wire left over from my wedding stuff. I did pick up the nose at the party store.
So to celebrate at school, we brought in cupcakes. To help make it special they had to be cute.
Here cake for her party is just finished.
and my kitchen looks about like this.
Plenty of candy, another cake for just the family tonight. What a mess! I am so thankful for the Dollar Tree when it is birthday time! I got her a balloon for each year!
I made custom bag toppers for her goodie bags.
I am really trying to challenge myself to do more everyday stuff with my digital program. I look forward to sharing some more of my ideas!
