Day 10- Symbol

While in utero our Claire was affectionately known as Li'l Peanut.
(To read about our name decision once she had been born click here.)

While preparing for her first birthday I went on a Google search 
for a cute picture of a peanut to incorporate into a post/FB profile picture 
and this one popped up to my great surprise and pleasure!

We run with the peanut theme for her birthday every year
by making peanut butter frosting for her cupcakes/cake.
This peanut photo above has also become her symbol on our Christmas cards each year. 
 It never changes. 
 Just as our love for her never changes.


In addition to using the photo each year, I purchase a new peanut ornament
for our Christmas tree for her as well.

To see her ornament for 2009 click here and 2010 click here.

2011's ornament?
It turned out to be a big bust!! Haha!
 I placed the order for a cute (what I thought to be a small) peanut only to have it arrive
looking like a giant frosted turd!
I was disappointed but what could I do but laugh?!
The whole family had a great time giggling as I placed the ornament...
on the back of the tree for no one but us to see!

“I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
as long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.”

  1. Oh, dear. your peanut story from last year made me smile. You are so very meaningful in all you do!

    1. I had to laugh to keep from crying, at first. It was a disappointment but turned into a great laugh! Seems as though Claire has a great sense of humor!
