So, about an hour after this post, my friend Jennifer called me (without knowing that I needed a project to work on) and gave me just what I was looking for. Her little Addie O was born a few weeks before Ben and Jennifer and I shared our pregnancies-through yard sales, that is! We taught at the same school and commiserated with each other over Bruster's ice cream whenever possible! She had seen the valentine banner I did for our house, and wanted a happy birthday version for Addie.
(Here is ours from Valentine's Day-and yes, I fixed the backwards a in Nate's name, I was just too lazy to take another picture)
I also did one for our little wild friend, Allie, but I don't think I ever took a picture.
So here is a sneak peek of Addie's-don't look Jennifer....
I'll try to remember to take a picture when the whole banner is finished. And I hope their mantle is extra long, because this is a really long banner.
