Stella's First Birthday Week!

Since Stella's first birthday is this Thursday (March 3rd), I thought I would bake a doggie cake & have a little party.

Luke & Hank joined Stella for her soirée.

I don't think Stella knew she was supposed to blow out her candles.

Yum! The peanut butter & carrot birthday cake was a big hit.

Everybody devoured it!

They were so full they needed a nap, but managed to pose for a photo.

Tracie & Shelby came over later in the day for a piece of birthday cake.

Then Jack & Jill brought Logan over for cake. He wasn't too fond of the party hats! Stella had a GREAT day filled with so much fun & so many friends. She wishes Tori wasn't out-of-town, but saved her a piece of yummy birthday cake.

Wheaten Wall & Playdate

Today Greg came over to hang my Wheaten wall. First we took down a large Alphalam of Tally to relocate across the room.

Even without opposable thumbs, Stella managed to help out.

Greg prides himself in being more of a perfectionist than I. At one point he muttered, "Oh that's waaay off!" He meant it was off by 1/8" & proceeded to fix it. Wow!

Taking a break.

The master hanger & my little supermodel.

The finished wall ...

... 11 Alphalams, mostly of Stella with a little Rosie, Laddie & Tally.
I couldn't have figured out anything without Rob doing the layout in InDesign. Thanks Rob & Greg!

Logan (left) our Wheaten neighbor came over with Jack & Jill for an impromptu playdate. He & Stella had a blast. It was hard to get them to sit still for a photo.

Guana with the Pups

Anna & I took Stella & Hank for a romp at the beach.


 BFFs frolicking in the surf!

Stella doesn't even want the ball. She just wants to chase Hank.

 Everybody had a great time!

It was really hard to wrangle Stella to get her leash back on. Even though she was exhausted, I don't think she wanted to go home.

The ride home.

4 Amigos

The 4 amigos ... Stella, Hank, Tory & Luke had a nice playdate in the forest. Somebody strikes a pose whenever a camera is pointed in her direction.

Tyler & Greg didn't think I could capture them all on my iPhone. C'mon! I'm a professional!

Which one is trying to bribe the treat holder?

Gotta Getta Gecko

This little fella was making Stella bonkers all day
