my little Brave

Every birthday calls for a special (mama-made) birthday dress...

I think she was quite satisfied with the finished product...

And an occasion to finally wear her vintage, patent leather, white maryjanes...

We had such a grand time celebrating my B is for Brave's Birthday...

We had little dotted B-things everywhere. The meal was B is for Bowls, so everyone had to make their own kind of bowl. You picked your type of rice, then meat, then veggies, then they were a couple different sauces... so a Mexican Bowl or Teriyaki Bowl could have been made. Of course they were eaten in Bowls...

There was B is for Brownies...

The B cookies...

B is for Balloons everywhere...

So I quickly learned I couldn't make my dream Balloon party come true because wind is a big factor. So we strung them up above us, where they weren't waving in anyone's face and I think it still proved to be a nice little touch.

It was a beautiful party thanks to my Mom, who is the ultimate party thrower. Everything was absolutely wonderful and we are so grateful for God blessing Brave with her first birthday.

We love our little Brave (but her real birthday is not for another week)...
