Lilly's 1st Birthday!

Birthday parties are fun, but 1st birthdays are a blast! Yesterday was my great-nieces (my nephews baby) 1st birthday and her Mommy, Kathleen, went all out on her party. She made hot pink and black tutu's for the girls (McKayla, LyAnna (my niece) and Lilly (great niece). They wore black long sleeve shirts and hot pink pants to match. Lilly's onesie shirt had a big number 1 on the front and it said "Today is my 1st birthday!" and the back said "Rollie Pollie Head 1-21-13" (rollie pollie head is her nickname from Momma LOL).

We took the kids to Build A Bear Workshop and let them pick out their new furry friends. Kathleen gave each kid $15 and they got to searching. Birthday girl picked a black teddy bear, McKayla picked out a puppy, LyAnna picked a pink kitty, Law picked a bunny, and Steven Devin picked a camo bear.

Ly and Law picking out sounds.

Waiting their turn.

Friends have been stuffed!

Birthday girl!

Time to bathe them!

Then it's time to find clothes for them (the girls ended up picking tutus for their new friends :-D),

Steven Devin says "So many choices!"

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
