Tomorrow is Bella's birthday, and I am sure I will post more about that later, but here is a peek into this afternoon. We have all been hiding away in various corners, working on her gifts. This is one corner that is ready, her Birthday Corner. It is complete with candles, flowers, a photo of her as one of the most beautiful babies I have seen (I know-- you deem me biased, but I assure you I have some level of objectivity when it comes to my children; Ana looked like Yoda, after all), one of Grandma Jane's teacups with a promise of a special tea, and one hand made gift.
We will do this corner this evening, before the busy rush of cakes and games, sparklers and balloons comes into full play tomorrow.
A set of finger puppets I made for her. Ana helped with some of it, and we are also holding on to a few blanks to be added to the set. Thus far we have: Ana, Bella, Asher, a pirate, a polar bear, a monkey and a hedgehog. Really, I think it is quite a complete cast as it stands.
