This post is a little late going up. But last month we celebrated our Bub’s first birthday.
Unsurprisingly, we’ve been busy. So getting pictures up took a little longer than I would have liked.
But on to the show!
There were presents. And Bub loved them, so did his sister, SweetPea 🙂 . But even better than presents were chocolate cupcakes. With pink frosting, of course. And yes, SweetPea did pick out both the flavor of the cupcakes AND the color of the frosting. Bub can pick those things next year, you know, when he’s talking.
This next picture proves that Bub is my child. I make that same face every time I eat chocolate. Every single time. It’s just so dang good.
This next picture proves that Bub is related to my husband. He does the same thing whenever he eats chocolate. Or spaghetti for that matter. That’s actually not true, he’s a bit of freak about getting food on his hands and face.
But this face is why we love him so!
Also this face.
Happy Birthday Bub! We’re so lucky to have two wonderful kids. And here’s to lots more crazy, messy, wonderful adventures. I hope you all are enjoying your families and your chocolate as much as I am.
Bub’s a smiler! At least he is when Dad’s booping his nose and giving him kisses.
Bub’s a smiling!
Bub’s a smiling!
What better way to entertain young kids than a story with a tiny talking dog, a girl who doesn’t know she’s a fairy, and a family reunion? This is a very sweet and imaginative tale about a young girl who learns she has powers. But will keeping these powers be temptation enough to keep her from wanting a mom and dad?
Annabel has a tiny, talking, trick-performing dog named Gloria instead of parents. She loves Gloria but what she wants more than anything else are parents. One day she learns she is a fairy (and she can fly!) soon she has to make a choice.
This is a delightful tale about love, honesty, forgiveness, sacrifice, and family. It’s a perfect book for snuggling two to a chair and reading aloud, preferably with homemade cookies and a warm drink. I would definitely recommend this book to readers young and old alike.
