Saturday afternoon, we celebrated Little E!
She reached her first milestone in this life...
Her mom chose the theme "Cute as a Button"
and did a great job creating it.
First, she decorated E's shirt by sewing
51 buttons on it in the shape of a heart!
That was a labor of love!
Then she hung these"buttons from the ceiling
over the table. They are paper party plates!
Buttons separated the monthly pictures
"clothespinned" to the twine.
It was sweet to look at how she has grown,
but interesting to see that her sweet little face
has not change much.
Her "smash" cake was a button, too!
She found this idea on Pinterest...peanut butter cookies
with the bottoms dipped in chocolate made into
buttons. You use a straw to make the holes!
There were buttons scattered on the table, too!
She made this banner with scrapbook paper and twine.
The table was very pretty and the food was colorful,
as well as, delicious.
She even decorated the vintage high chair she
borrowed for the occasion.
Little E didn't dive in, but she ate enough to get messy
and to entertain the crowd that was watching!
However, she did get pretty involved in opening
her gifts. She had everyone laughing
at her enthusiasm!
About his time, she had decided it was time
to do something else.
But Mom convinced her to open the rest!
Here is the sweet little birthday girl
with her mom and dad...
and her cousins (funny picture!)...
and her grandparents from her dad's side
of the family...
.and her sweet aunt (dad's sister)...
and with our family!
(except Little L who was napping!)
It was a wonderful afternoon!
Our hearts were filled with joy and gratitude
for the precious gift God gave our family
one year ago when our Little E was born.
He has blessed her with adoring parents, grandparents,
aunts, uncles, and cousins.
And many others who just love her
because of who she is and whose she is!
He has also blessed her with health and wholeness,
and a winsome personality. She is a joy and a delight!
Happy Birthday, Little E! Gran loves you very much!
