My niece is 1! And while I still don’t believe it’s true that my little bear just celebrated her first birthday, here are the pictures to prove it.
Sammy loves anything and everything to do with bears (and also fire hydrants, but that doesn’t make for a very good birthday theme), so we decided to throw a teddy bear picnic at my family’s lake house. I designed gingham invitations and birthday signs (and of course, a birthday crown for her #1 sidekick, Lamby).
We had blow-up bear beach balls (say that 10 times fast) and a cake made by the incredibly talented duo of my dear friend Jen and her mom. These cake-girl-bosses made the most adorable bear cake complete with a little red flower to match the theme. Between the bear face and the fact that this was Sammy’s first encounter with sugar, I think she had the best day ever : )
Sammy has been such a blessing in our lives and I’m not quite sure what we did before that sweet pea came along! Well my sister definitely slept more, but besides that : ) It was a perfect day of celebrating our little bear.
