I love the spring/summer time, for it's the season of picture taking! Here is Todd's cousin, Kayla's, senior portraits! She graduated from Hurricane High School Tuesday night. Congratulations Kayla! Click here for more.
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!
