The Princess Pink's first birthday~

A year in the making.  A sweet girl turns ONE~and a big party ensues!!  My mother cooked up a storm, my sister and I crafted away...and the Dol table (traditional Korean 1st b-day party) was a success!  Happy birthday baby!
Now we move on to our oldest son J who will be 9 in November.  Having his "friend" birthday this coming weekend-so we can take the kiddos to the haunted corn maze!!!!  (there is a plus for celebrating in Oct rather than in November!!)

This week's agenda will be to ready myself for this with Halloween decor!!  I started with the guilded pumpkin display in the dining room....my camera didn't take great photos...made the dessert stands with a little spraypaint, candlesticks and plates from the thrift store! 

And am putting finishing touches on the ribbon wreath.....with a little help from R
....and I bought my BOO letters to become a doorhanger...mod podge--oh where did I put you???

Sweet Baby girl.....are you really one and 1??

As a mom of boys...three wonderfully active smart and funny boys....I was shockd to find out that growing in my tummy, was a baby GIRL.  Ummm....Yeah.  Girl.  I didn't know we could "make" a GIRL!!  I actually didn't believe the ultrasound tech when she said, "I don't SEE any boy parts...."  so I quick made that 4D ultrasound appointment! 
(no this isn't a pic of the girl parts...I thought that was better left alone LOL)  She was sucking her thumb!

Then I gave myself permission to knit something GIRL SPECIFIC!!!

Sweater and hat--feather and fan pattern--for baby's "coming home"
Then our little pink package arrived--just in time for Halloween!

and a SHORT year later-and now taking a few steps on her own...we will be celebrating a first birthday this coming weekend!!!  Happy Birthday my sweet daughter...we are all so completely in love.
