Happy 4th Birthday Shelby!!

 I just can't believe Shelby is 4 years old! It just seems like she jumped from a baby in arms to a prissy little girl. Let me tell you, she is one prissy lady!

 Saturday was her birthday party. She shared her party with her friend, Claire. They were so darned cute wearing their gymnastics outfits as their party was at Jill's Gymnastics. It was a great party place for the kids as the workers did all of the work. They let them tumble and jump for an hour, served pizza and icees, cut and served the cakes, passed out the gifts, bagged up the gifts, and were just so sweet to the kids. All the moms had to do was take pics!
  This is Shelby before the party with her cake PawPaw had made for her. It was soooo cute and soooo good!
It was hard to get many good pics at her party. As you all know, kids this age are not still for very long.

I gave Shelby the outfit and the swimsuit I made her, and this is what she told her Mommy tonight. I was so tickled.


Shelby: "Mimi is cool."

Mommy: "Really?"

Shelby: "Yeah, because she makes cool clothes for me."

  That makes it all worthwhile! Mimi will keep sewing for her as long as she wants to wear what I make.
  This is the swimsuit which is the pattern I used last spring from Sew Beautiful # 130. I also made one for Claire as we all go to the beach at the same time.


 I will be joining Shelby, Cayden, and my daughter for lunch today on her real birthday. I always try to see my grandbabies on their birthday no matter when their party is scheduled. These are the most precious memories a Mimi can have!!
