Last week our sweet Lucy Louise had her first birthday! I can not believe it! Time has completely flown by this year. Everyone in our house had been so excited for Lucy to have her first birthday and were eagerly counting down the days until Lucy's glorious day.
During the night, I decorated the house for Lucy's birthday. Signs were hung around the house and balloons were blown; the house was ready for Lucy's big day.
One of my favorite memories of Lucy's birthday was when I could hear over the baby monitor one of the boys going in and singing Happy Birthday to Lucy. It was so sweet and so tender. This little lady is loved by so many in our house.
To start the morning off, Lucy sat in her pile of pink balloons and talked to her grandma on the phone.
Lucy loves a good bath so I gave her a nice long bath on her birthday.
Of course the kids drew her many love notes. My favorite was the one that Hyrum drew for her that showed Lucy's fangs. It was so cute and made me laugh.
The next day, we had our own little family party where
Lucy was given her presents that her beloved siblings lovingly picked
out for her.
Ben picked out a sippy cup with a straw (
Lucy LOVES any cup with a straw) and a frog for the bath tub. In the
picture below, Ben is explaining to Lucy how the frog works. It was
Emmy picked out a light spinning toy and a toy phone for Lucy.
Hyrum picked out a rubber ducky and letters and numbers for Lucy to play with in the bath tub.
Besides the fact that Lucy had a cold on her birthday, she still had a wonderful birthday.
