Well, I think it’s safe to say we are fully recuperated from little lamb’s first birthday last week. I am normally incapable of taking a nap but as soon as everyone left little lamb and I hit the hay! We had her party at 12:00 which is a little risky since it’s so close to nap time, but that was so only time that worked for everyone. Little lamb woke up Saturday morning in the bests of moods screaming and laughing while running around the house. She was absolutely enamored by all the decorations and balloons. Mommy was a little too busy getting everything set up and forgot to try to get her to take a nap…oops. Thank goodness as soon as everyone started arriving she got a second wind. She’s not really a napper either and often recharges herself several times for actually falling asleep.
For lunch, my honey fried some chicken for honey butter chicken biscuits. Can I just say it was the best-fried chicken ever! A good southern woman knows how to fry a chicken, but a smart southern woman teaches her husband. Can I get an amen!
Little Lamb’s birthday theme was rhinestone cowgirl, and she rocked it just without her boots on.. they were a little hard to walk in. I made her an awesome lopsided cowgirl cake; it was my second attempt with fondant. My first attempt was for our gender reveal cake and let me just say it was a disaster! Thankfully, this one turned out soooooooo much better! I also made some caramel corn, cupcake smash cake and rice crispy cowboy boots. I have a serious sweet tooth..and hopefully not another cavity. Her interaction with her smash cake was not as dramatic was I thought it would be. Little lamb is one spunky, rambunctious, little thing so I thought she would dive head first in that cake. Instead, she was so dainty and picked at the frosting, and then stuffed a huge piece of cake in her mouth and slightly then choked. This was her first time having sugar, and I can say with confidence she also has a sweet tooth. I realized this the day before when she was licking powdered sugar off the kitchen floor… I couldn’t help but laugh because that is something her daddy would have done as a child ..
My honey also made this table for the party and to replace our old kitchen table, I love it!
I think her favorite part was trying to touch the lit candle!
It was such a fun day! We are beyond thankful for such a happy, healthy, funny baby girl!
