Our "Minnie" Turned ONE!

My baby has turned ONE! This is a very happy yet sad time for mama! She is the happiest baby and growing so well, but I'm so not ready for her to already be one! The year has flown by way too fast!

Never the less, I pushed through my "sad mama stage" and planned her big party! We had a few gliches but thank the good Lord, we made it through! 

Our party theme!?? We had to do Minnie of course! hehe

A very sweet girl from our church offered to dress up as a Minnie mouse. She looked so cute!
All the Minnie and Mickey ears were made by my sister, step-niece and I. I honestly don't know if I would have gotten everything done if it weren't for them! They were a HUGE help!

I made her dress and pettiskirt. The head gear was a gift.
This is my first pettiskirt and I'm very proud! I actually bought a pettiskirt pattern from a seller on etsy and I have never regretted buying a PDF pattern until that one! It was horrible and it was so confusing! No pictures and they tried to make it as hard as possible. But now I know... NO MORE patterns from that seller! Okay... my little rant is over! After searching online and seeing many ways that people do them, I found the best one, I thought, made a few minor changes but it was very helpful! Read about the pettiskirt here.
You can read my review on the dress pattern here.
