Happy Ten Years Abby



Our Abby turned 10 yesterday. She is such a beautiful daughter, wonderful sister, very creative and artistic, an excellent baker, quiet and thoughtful.

She began her day with her father taking her out to breakfast. This is how each of our children begins their birthday morning.

I decorated simply with a newly sewed banner and table quilt.


and sewed some goody bags which contained a lollipop, mints and a hand sewn ball filled with beans.



In the afternoon she had three friends over and with our family of eight - made a nice number of people.

They had an outdoor scavenger hunt that Abby made up: 4 different kinds of leaves, 2 different wildflowers, 2 feathers, 10 rocks, run and get your color flag at the end of the driveway, 50 pine needles, 10 ferns, 15 twigs.


She made a "Guess How Many Beans" jar.


Abby made and frosted her own cupcakes.


A simple birthday that I hope was filled with joy for you dear Abby. We love you.

Love, Mom

  5. Happy Birthday Abby! What a beautiful celebration. What an amazing little girl! I love the games she came up with and the cupcakes she baked. This kind of connection and simplicity is what I aim for in my own family. The table quilt is quite pretty and I loved the homesewn touches everywhere-very inspiring. I'm off to sew some teacher gifts myself. Thank you for sharing.
