Let's party!

Jerzie's Mommy and Daddy had a great 1st birthday party for her at a park on Sunday. The party had a doggie theme so Mommy and I made dog ears for all the kids. Jerzie's had purple bows to match her dress. I had given her one of her presents on Friday, her actual birthday.
Just look at her "reading "
her card! Admiring her gift.
I gave her a baby ring from my Mom's things. I don't really know whose it was but knew Jerzie had to have it.
On Sunday I gave her a rocking chair. One of my customer's husbands made it.It's made from cherry and I really love it.

They even made a pad, from material I bought, so she won't slide out of it!
I also gave her a "book" I made from my post in February about "Wrestling a Bear".
I used the same pictures and copied the words.
Her Mommy was real happy with it and I'm sure Jerzie will enjoy it when she's grown up.
She's sitting nice in her chair now but Daddy thinks he'll have to put a belt on it because she jerks back and forth to rock.

If you'd like to see how much she liked her doggie cake and get a good laugh click here.
All and all it was a great, but tiring day! She hadn't even left the park yet.

Very nice post looks like y'all had a good day.

Last year I found a baby ring with the same birth stone in the garden when I was planting some bulbs.

It must have belonged to one of my cousins many year ago but unfortunately never got the chance to be passed on or even reunited with its owner because I lost it shortly after finding in. I lost it in the garden of all places.

I love the book you made. How fun it must be to read her stories with her own pictures in the book!

She looks like she enjoyed everything.
