It's Party Time!

Today is Penelope's 1st Birthday!
Here's some pictures of her enjoying some cake at her party last Sunday.

Balloons, cake and cupcakes & presents! Her Grandpa and I gave her that cute little pink chair. She looks like such a princess on it ~ click any photo for a better look.

We also gave her this hippo swimming pool ($3.24 on clearance at Target last year!) and 100 plastic balls to fill it with. Penelope's cousins, Elijah & Charlotte, enjoyed playing in it with her.

...and without her!

These little ones take my breath away ~ they make me smile all the time! I love them SO MUCH!!

I’m wishing you another year
Of laughter, joy and fun,
Surprises, love and happiness,
And when your birthday’s done,
I hope you feel deep in your heart,

As your birthdays come and go,
How very much you mean to me,
More than you can know.

God Bless precious Penelope (and her sweet cousins)! She is beautiful! Sweet mosaics sharing all of the joy and the fun of this special day!

Love, ldh
PS I got a special gift in the mail yesterday! It is a bottle of antique silver glitter and it was sent from a very dear lady! Thank you!!!

Marie, How sweet are those pictures! Love the inventive ball pit, Robert had a blow-up boat loaded with balls when he was little (it was hard for me to stay out of it). It is so great for them when they are learning to explore their world.

Looks like you had as much fun as Penelope.

Your pictures took my breath away! It's hard to believe that Penelope is a year old already! A first birthday is such a special event and it looks like Elijah and Charlotte enjoyed it as much as Penelope did....not to mention the rest of your clan. I always wish that when people were taking pictures of kids...someone would take a picture of the people taking the pictures..making funny faces, shouting encouragement, etc...a funny thought.
You have a beautiful bunch of grands and I'm sure your heart is filled with joy! A true blessing!
Thanks for letting us come to the party and peek in.
PS-do you think they make that chair in my size?

Happy First Birthday Penelope. I just love that first picture of the hat, it's absolutely precious. Looks like she had a ton of fun at her party.

Hi Marie and happy 1st birthday Penelope. The pictures are just as sweet as can be. It almost makes me want a little one. Ha-ha.

Marie I wanted to come by and thank you for the gigantic package of glitter and the adorably sweet cards. I was thrilled when I got them today and almost hate to open and use any of the glitter. It's just to pretty! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for hosting such a lovely giveaway with such a fun prize.

Have a blessed day, you sure blessed mine. Hugs...Tracy :)

Where art thou Marie? Oh, I see, she is having fun with Penelope! What a cute little bee I see, golly gee, it's all meant to be, granny and me said Penelope! She might just be a cute doll house model for our game board tomorrow. Come on over and play Dollyopoly!
