With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Happy 3rd Birthday, Cambrie Noelle

Happy 3rd Birthday, Cambrie Noelle

Cambrie LOVES Minnie Mouse!
So for her Birthday I made her a hat.


The pattern is from Repeat Crafter Me
this little 3-year old sweetie melts my heart
peeking in the window
 It was a rainy, chilly afternoon when Jared and I met Jamie and the kids at the Pop Shop
to celebrate Cambrie's birthday in the quaint town of Collingswood, New Jersey.
A few years ago, Bobby Flay arrived at the Pop Shop for a Grilled Cheese Throwdown.

 big bowls of ice-cream made everyone happy
 and there might have been some noisy children too...
even in the rain the streets were beautiful

When Ella stopped coming for childcare back in September, I told her I would take her to our church's Living Nativity.  So, that is what we did Saturday night. I told her afterward we could go to Friendly's for dinner and ice-cream sundaes.  Much to my surprise, she wanted to head back to my house where we spent a couple of hours playing together in the nursery,  She made me lots of plates of play food, played dress-up and read an American Girl magazine to me.

What a darling hat for a precious, little girl! I'm making hats for all of my grandkids as part of their Christmas this year. I can't share them on my blog until after Christmas or it might give away the secret! I'm making fashion hats for the girls and hats for the boy's favorite sports team from a local university. Your evening with Ella sounds wonderful. What a treat to have her choose to be at your home instead of out to eat!

Your hat is beautiful, Lorraine I adore the colors. Wishing Cambrie Happy Birthday, the photo of them looking through the window is priceless. I so enjoy walking in our downtown area during the holidays!

Ella is smart, having fun with grandma is much better that a restaurant, especially when her grandmother is such a wonderful chef! not to mention playmate~smile~
Thanks for sharing these wonderful memories.
Hugs,
Sue

Happy Birthday to little Cambrie. The MM hat is cute! I enjoyed the pics of everyone and it was a surprise to see Ella again too. What a wonderful opportunity for her to attend the living Nativity and have some one on one time with you.

The Minnie Mouse hat is too cute for words. Happy birthday to little Cambrie. I love that Ella wanted to go to your house instead of out to eat. Enjoyed the photos

Cheryl said...

So darling! The hat, yes, but more so the sweet little girl wearing it! It looks like such a happy celebration!

I know that Ella had a wonderful time hanging with you. After all, time with you was better than Friendly's which says a lot. :)

Love the Minnie Mouse hat! What a precious child.

I'll have to share the instructions with my mom, as sugar plum is IN LOVE with all things Mickey/Minnie. Her 2nd birthday party had the "mouse" theme. Sadly, I wasn't able to go, but I saw pics of the cake and it was adorable.

podso said...

Love the sweet hat you made for Cambrie!! Looks like she had a very happy birthday already, so I'll just wish her a wonderful year ahead, and many happy returns!! In the meantime, I know a little girl in my own family who might like a hat like this. If I can squeeze the time in to make one, I will! ~tina

Hi Lorraine! So nice to see your name and to know you were once my customer. Thank you so much!

Perused your lovely blog and just MUST follow along! Beautiful, peaceful place you have and I LOVE the hat.

Blessings for a lovely Christmas. I'll be away a bit because on the 28th I'm having surgery. Looking forward to a wonderful New Year!

Hugs~Rebecca

The Minnie Mouse hat + the Gingerbread hat are ADORABLE!!

Just a little something from Judy said...

The little hats are so cute! The pictures of the little ones are even cuter! What joy and fun you add to their lives, and the memories you are creating for them will stay with them for life.

The pictures of you show you too young looking to be a grandma to all of the children.

susan@avintagefarmwife said...

Oh my goodness! I love, love, love that hat! Off to check out the pattern.

Tracy Sipe said...

Yes ma'am.....it appears that I am late to this party but I just ran across this pattern and my 3 yr old niece LOVES Minnie. I followed the like to Repeat Crafter Me. However your hat looks like it has a rim at the bottom which I like that look. Can you please tell me how you did this? Thank you and have a very blessed new year!
