Cannon’s Birthday

Madi’s little friend Cannon is having a birthday party this weekend. You may remember Cannon from this picture at Halloween. http://mariesegal.blogspot.com/2009/11/madis-1st-halloween.html

I wanted to do something special for Cannon. This is the group that my daughter and I did Lamaze with when she was pregnant with Madi.

My daughter and Madi have celebrated a lot of firsts with these kids and their parents. I am so glad they have all stayed in touch over the year.

It is so fun to be in on this from the beginning!

They are a great group of kids with kids, lol!!

They are very nice to me and Cannon’s dad is the one that pieced a computer together for me when I worked mine in to the ground and had no money to buy another one, and because of him I was able to keep posting and commenting.

I am so grateful for that!!

Cannon’s theme for his Birthday revolves around little baby puppets.

I love little baby puppets.

I wanted to make them in a ring, so I put this cutter there.

Here are the legs to the first one, can you guess who it is yet?

Here he is finished, with the next guy coming to life besides him.

Awwwwwwwwww so cute.

That bird thing in the back though looks like he is coming out of the desk.

Now the bird looks better. If you will notice they are sitting next to each other.

Forget the ring of characters.

I am always going back and forth with how I want something to be in the end.


A pair of legs, I bet you can guess who this is, right?

Well, maybe not, but I will tell you he is my favorite monster and he loves to be tickled.

Sorry these pictures are not so great! I have to work on these in the late hours of the day.

With a one year old running around the place, it is very hard to get much of anything done during the day.

  kind of let the pieces fall where they may. They tell me how they should stand together.

I know, sounds crazy, yep!!

They are looking very cute together though.

Luckily I work pretty fast, don’t want to give them a chance to change their minds.

Here is a view from different angle.

Here is another character coming to life.

They seem to greet each other as the come alive.

Is it?…

Yes, it is!


Oops, looks like the red baby grew a nose too!
