Belle and her Party Hat

Put on your Best Collar and get all brushed up because it's party time!!This past Saturday we had a birthday celebration for Belle. It was her first birthday!! I think she was pretty excited about it. Doesn't she look happy? For her birthday, I made her a party hat and some cupcakes. Doesn't she look so thrilled to be celebrating her birthday?! "Is the humiliation over? What more could this strange lady want from me? I think I look stupid in this hat." I made Belle her party hat. I think she loved it. What do you think? I also made her some cupcakes and gave her a candle. Again, I think she was really excited. "Is that it? That cupcake is tiny!" We lit her candle and sang Happy Birthday to her. I think this was her favorite part. Or maybe it was Little Cowpoke's favorite part! He looks pretty into singing in the back there. Ha ha ha. The kids blew out her candle and then it was cup cake time. This made all the hat wearing and singing worth it. Yum yum yum!! What would a first birthday picture be with out cake all over her face? After the cake we all went outside for a photo shoot. One happy bulldog with her party hat and hugs from Little Cowpoke. She was even happier when her party hat fell off her head.
Cowpokette was really excited to wear the party hat. Little Cowpoke took a picture of me and Cowpokette. Then the party hat fell off of Cowpokette, and Belle got it! "Let me show you what I think of this party hat!!"Little Cowpoke tried to save it but to his dismay, it could not be saved. That made for one happy bulldog. I promise I won't make her wear a super tall party hat again. Well, at least not until her next birthday!

Oh, how adorable! I can't believe Belle is one year old, seems like she was just a puppy! I can tell she loved the attention of the party! :)

Hmmm, I think I know why she doesn't like you now! Bwahahaha! The hat was so funny! I bet she had a great birthday!

Oh, my poor Belle. The humiliation! She looks thrilled with the hat. Very funny.

Paint Girl said...

That is so cute! I love that party hat! I am not very creative, but I would so make a party hat for my dog or cat! People already think I am strange for putting tshirts on my cat!
Great pictures! The kids look like they enjoyed it as much as Belle!

Sydney said...

LOL Her face is totally priceless with that hat on.

Alex said...

she is adorable (well, so is your whole family!) and her "eating" her hat reminds me of after our younger dog Otis' neuter surgery (he was kryptoid) he got ahold of his cone... he pretty much destroyed it! He was happy to get his revenge, and we thought it was hilarious watching him chew it to bits!

You guys are having WAY too much fun over there.

Belle is a doll and deserved a big hat and party.

Popped over here from Broken Y...What a cute post! I also love your look! Very cute!

BrownEyed Cowgirls said...

Bwahahahaha!!! Belle looks entirely unenthused...at least until you gave her permission to eat her cupcake!

I can't believe it has been that long already. My oh my how the time flies.

Stephanie said...

There is a happy bulldog picture! And I think she rather enjoyed all the attention!

Great Pictures!

Belle looks TOTALLY thrilled .....Not ! :-)

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

LOL! LOL! Along with your pictures, your commentary was so cute and cracked me up! Belle is such a big girl now. No sign of puppyness anymore. That's one fancy collar, too. Did you make it?

I liked when your daughter put Belle's party hat on. Then she was the Belle of the Ball!

(And people thought I was nutty to have a barn party for the horse's birthdays. lol!)
