Lucy's Party

This morning I was setting up for Lucy's party and I decided that there was a shortage of festive decorations. So.. I made a little pink and purple birthday banner, which cheered everything up in a hurry!

I've never been a big fan of buttercream frosting, so I made some whipped cream and added some fun pink sprinkles.

Here's my little birthday beauty in her home-made crown! Boy, was she cute :)

We tried to coax her to blow out the candle, but she just kept reaching for the pretty fire with her hand. We ended up helping her extinguish the flame.

I thought there would be cake and whipped cream everywhere, but Lucy was very composed about the whole thing. I think she was just trying to take it all in.

I was so thrilled to see how much she loves Lilly the doll!

She just kept hugging her and nuzzling her face. Oh what good it did a mama's heart!

Happy Birthday my darling girl.

Wow! Happy 1st Birthday Lucy girl! I can't believe your sweetie is one already. It seems as if you had just announced your pregnancy. Isn't being a mother wonderful? :)

I don't like frosting either. Here's the recipe I use:

1 cup whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
1 small package instant pudding, any flavor

Whip all ingredients in a chilled bowl, until desired thickness for spreading.

It's so yummy!
(Love your blog by the way. You performed at the Journey Church in San Jose a couple years ago, and I loved your music. Found your blog after that, and have loved seeing all your craft projects...I started sewing last year myself!)

It has been precious to watch her grow through your year and 9 months of blog posts.
Thank you for sharing this sweet part of your life.

I listen to your music and now think of you
as Lucy Love's mama.
