I hope you don't mind just one last birthday post….
a few snapshots of Mr. Four's day…..
A lot of creating happened around these parts leading up to the celebration. Some play silks were made. A crown. A sweet birthday shirt. Some very thoughtful gifts from loved ones near and far.
A "black cake with a garbage truck and police car and fire truck", just as requested by the birthday boy, was made and devoured. Chocolate cream cheese frosting. Wow.
We sang Happy Birthday at least a dozen times throughout the day…. much to his enjoyment!
In the days before as I sewed up his party shirt, I was thinking of something special to add to it. When the time came to pick out buttons, I found just the thing. In my stash of "repurpose this" fabric, I have a few shirts from my Great Grandfather who passed away just after Luke's birth. I pulled one of those shirts out and with four little snips of my scissors, I had just the thing for my boy's birthday shirt. A sweet little connection from the past of a man I hold so dear to my heart.
An air mail gift arrived on our front step from Grammie & Papa. What smart balloons to get from their house to ours.
The beginnings of his birthday table…
Hand dyed silks we made just for him. (more about these tomorrow)
