Nana Post!

Good Morning and Happy Monday. I am warning you that this post is a very heavy Nana post and I will understand if you zip on by.
As I said last post my weekend was going to involve cake. My Daughter gave a little Teaparty for Erin's 1st Birthday and she did a beautiful job. It was a Moo cow and pink themed little party as Erin's favourite toy is a stuffed cow. Everything looked so pretty.
And the cake, a gift from a loving friend was sooo very cute! There was also the yummiest cupcakes another gift from a friend.....themed of course!
So a girl has to blow at her candles...
and then a taste test...just to see if it is ok for the guests.
Yep! Passed muster!
Lots of lovely presents to open too....
But I also thought pulling Grampy's beard was good fun!
Nana messed my hair and crumpled my dress in this photo.....Sorry!
It was lovely to have this little celebration and we throughly enjoyed it....great fun.
I wanted to share with you the gorgeous card my friend Ann made that I gave to Erin....
She is so clever and we all love what has become known now as an "Ann" card. Charlotte received and "Ann" card as well.
For both my beautiful Granddaughters as a little Nana memento of their 1st Birthdays I did a little drawing for them and popped it into a frame. Erin's....
of course there had to be bears and this is Charlotte's...
Are you still with me? Thank you and bravo for hanging in there! I have no sewing to show you as the rest of the weekend was taken up with wrestling with new technology and a new car.....scary stuff!
Enjoy your day,
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx
