Julie from mademama.com sent me a link to photos of her daughter Raleigh's first birthday party. She made enlarged copies of my characters to decorate the woodland themed party. Julie explained to me that her daughter loves the squirrel and deer so much that she put them on Raleigh's bedroom wall. She regularly points to them and does the sign for them. I was so touched I got a little teary eyed. This is the happy little bird in her home made owl costume. Check out her Mama blog to see more photos of the happy event and a recipe for chocolate owl cake balls.
