Happy First Birthday, Clarabel!

Saturday, May 5, Clarabel turned one year old!  Her first year has truly flown by, and she is just getting prettier and sweeter every single day! 

We celebrated her special day with a small party, including Mommy, Daddy, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, Great-Grandparents, and cousins.   After a delicious lunch of taco salad and enchiladas--- the perfect menu for Cinco de Mayo, Clarabel opened her gifts, blew out her candle, and we enjoyed birthday cake and ice cream, then she played, and played, and played... until she was all tuckered out, and had to take a nice, long nap.  We ended the day rocking on the screen porch as we watched the "Super Moon" rise, while the fireflies entertained us with their light-show! 

Happy birthday, my sweet baby girl! 

This is the Birthday Outfit that I made for Clarabel's first birthday party-- complete with cupcake bloomers and birthday crown!  The beautiful fabrics were a prize that I won from Me and My Sister Designs .  The exciting, vivid colors were just perfect for such a happy occasion!

    1. Thank you, Mindy! It was fun to make--- pretty easy-- that's why I love sewing for little girls! :-) It is a little large, but she will grow into it... :-) And happy birthday to your grand child too-- May 5 is a great day to be born! :-)
