Before we left, we decided to walk around the hands-on activities and decided to try to let Anna do some painting on a paper plate. She cratered half way through (she was definitely in need of a nap) but we did get something good enough to hang on the fridge! I think I may have a little Picasso on my hands...LOL
Well what a fun day...I'm pooped now! I'm off to put on the PJ's and finish up on some sewing orders! Good night!

Then, my mom called me today and told me that some squeaky sandals that she ordered Anna came in and we were visiting my friend Michelle and stopped by to pick them up! They are so cute and are size 3's and still big but we will make them work so she can squeak around and walk! :) I will have to keep them away from Rascal though..He was chasing her around like she was a big fat chew toy! :)
We had such a fun & busy day! Well, we are having a fun little pool party tomorrow afternoon with some of Anna's friends in her new pool that her aunt got her for her birthday! I'll post pics soon of all the fun! ~Stacy

Here's the drink table...Little ladybugs everywhere!!
The cake table
I painted these flower pots for my outside party, but decided to bring them in to decorate. They turned out so well and didn't take any time to make!! Who said gardening had to be boring?? LOL
Anna loved her cake and we were so blessed to have one of our dear friends mother make it for us. I turned out so cute! I didn't want to eat it and mess it up...lol
When we sang Happy Birthday to her, it was so funny! She just said there with no reaction staring at us like we were crazy people...LOL...She then realized that that meant she could tear into this super cute mini ladybug cake she made for her and she loved it! She picked it up, squished it in her hands and just held it in her mouth and sucked on it. She loves sweets and she even did a nosedive!
She has been loving all of her presents she got from baby dolls, blocks, Elmo, clothes, and lots more. She also loves her new big girl chair her Nonna & Big Daddy (my parents) got her! She loves to climb in it and sit down and kick her feet...LOL..
So now I'm just trying to get our house back in order from all the party chaos and I'm busy with some sewing orders. I am so thankful to my wonderful Lord for blessing me with such a special year with such a special and sweet baby girl! I can only pray for many more years to come! :)
Thank you all so much for your entries! My hubby just got home and I made him pick one out of the bucket and lucky Lindsay won!! :) Congrats! I was so excited to see what you all liked! I'm planning on adding some more outfits soon, so keep your eye out for new stuff! :)
Thanks for the birthday wishes too! Anna had a great time and I'll post pics of her birthday party soon!

My sweet "Fancy Fritter" and the inspiration for this blog & my clothing store is turning one years old today! It blows me away to think that my sweet Anna is already one year old! It has been a wonderful year and I am so blessed from the Lord to have been given such a sweet & healthy baby girl! We have a ladybug party planned for Saturday, so I'll have to post pictures soon to show everyone all the fun decorations & party-goers.
In the meantime, I figured that I would help celebrate Anna's one year birthday with a giveaway to all my sweet readers!! So fun day for her and fun day for you!! :)

First off, My baby girl will be 1 on April 17th and her party is 2 weeks from today! We are doing a ladybug theme and I can not tell you how excited I am! I have so many fun ideas and I have a to-do list a mile long, but I'm so excited to celebrate this special day with all my close family & friends! Anna is so loved & I hope she feels it on that day! I can't believe it has already been a year..Time flies..Don't get me started..The waterworks will get turned on!! lol
Other than fulfilling my domestic duties (ha!), I have been busy sewing up a storm. I finished Anna's ladybug pillowcase dress for her party last night, & whipped up 2 new outfits today. I went to Joann's and got inspired & I love how they turned out! So cute! Here is a peek of the 3 new listings in my store! (I just love my little model..hehe!)
