My girl is off to a birthday party!

Tyler is turning one. He lives just down the street, so we can walk to his house.

Somebody has a new COW skirt. And new black skinny pants- she’s right in style. And a new red shirt, but that was rejected in favor of her favorite black (STORE-bought, I’m ashamed to say) kitty shirt. No worries- the clothing spats have only JUST BEGUN, I’m sure. Anyway, she LOVED the cow skirt. I could scarcely get her to take it off for the next 3 days.

I sewed like crazy until it was time to leave for the party. All 3 pieces were done in the nick of time, fudged without patterns and using whatever I could find in the scrap box. I think I like to sew that way, flying by the seat of my pants. It works (usually!) I also made the little white cardigan earlier this spring…and it still fits!

 It was the first birthday party Zia was really excited about and involved in as a little guest. She talked about and anticipated the whole thing for days ahead of time: presents, toys, cake and ice cream, kids, and of course, the dog!

Time for fun and games!

Pin the tail on the donkey. Zia was the tiniest player. She was too short to reach the donkey!

But her tail (#5) took the cake!

Literally. That’s her above  in the middle, with her prize…a big blow-up cake.

Then came the real cake! Zia took a tiny bite and then realized her bubbles were more interesting…guess FD&C yellow #5 isn’t that great when you’re not addicted to it.

Cake, ice cream, and SOMEONE’S abandoned plate!

Somehow presents seem like more fun when they’re for YOU, not someone else.

After the party, we said our goodbyes and walked back home to where Dadda was raking leaves.

Someone is a wee bit sleeeeeepy…notice the candle up the nose? It works almost as good as Mr. Lion’s tail…zzzzzzz…
