One Year Ago

It is hard to believe that my little granddaughter Ellie just turned ONE!
 I made the tutu and headband she is wearing in this picture and mailed it so it would be there for my little princess on her special day. We did not have the big one year party as my daughter and SIL had planned. Instead they are currently moving away from their apartment and city life in Atlanta to their first house in the country!
It has a backyard for playtime outside.
They really wanted to celebrate big and were a bit disappointed that there would be no time during the move for the party.
I think that the house with the backyard is a perfect birthday gift for a little girl who is starting to walk :)
They snapped a few pictures for me all while trying to move.
She looks a little annoyed with her beads.
Guess the life of a princess is not so easy LOL!!


Okay, where did the time go??
Seems like it was just last week that I saw this little bundle of sweetness for the first time.




Have I really been a Nana for one year now?


The trip to Atlanta is a long one from Iowa but oh so worth it when I see this precious little face smiling at me.


We have enjoyed shopping together...
and the occasional selfie.


Can hardly wait to hold my special girl in my arms again.
I am one PROUD Nana :)


Happy 1st Birthday!

Have a fabulous weekend everybody!!
Karen
