Since our "Little Lady" was turning one we decided to have a "Ladybug" themed party! It was a quick one, but it was a hit! I crocheted her dress! I'm pretty excited about this since it's not only the first dress I've ever made, but I created the pattern myself! Everything at the party was red, black, and white, incorperating polk dots where ever possible! We started with presents, then did cake and treats. I really don't like cupcakes but it was a busy day so I had to simplify. Plus, I think it's so much easier on the baby to eat a cupcake instead of something larger. For the finale of the party we had a ladybug hunt! It really wasn't that difficult because we let out about 1500 ladybugs (you can buy them for about $7 at a garden nursery) at once, but the kids loved it. They probably loved it because it was so easy! They put their jars into mason jars I had decorated, but I'm pretty sure most of them were let out into gardens once they were home! Happy Birthday little Suzy! I can't believe you're one!

I'll never have this day again - And when today is through I may not have another chance For things I ought to do - The friendship I should offer, The kindness someone needs, The thoughtfulness I can express In loving little deeds, The helpful words that someone Might wait to hear me say - Lord, help me to remember, There's only one today!
