Happy Birthday Walter!

In our house we love all creatures great and small...and we celebrate their birthdays!

Walter (Chantel's hamster, or her son as she calls him) is now 1 year old. That is quite a milestone for a hamster.

Chantel spent the morning decorating the house for the big party.

The birthday boy (otherwise known as the birhday boy) got a brand new house for his birthday.

A couple of Chantel's friends got here and Walter looked on as they made him a cake.

Then the girls did some dancing while the cake cooked.

Our dog Daisy sat on the couch and watched.

Then they decorated the cake. They are typical teenagers--they are always on the phone.
Singing to Walter before he blows out is candle.

Then more pictures with Walter.

Hershey (Wyatt's hamster) was an honored guest,

Another of Chantel's friends was a little late  but I am sure Walter was quite happy she was able to come.

Happy Birthday Walter! (...and many more...)

Thanks for stopping by our party post :)

How fun to have a party for Walter! He looks like he gets plenty of love too! I love how you captured something most people wouldn't recognize and made it a family event. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Happy be-lated birthday Walter! I see we are not the only ones who celebrate our pet's birthday. And it just so happens that we also just celebrated Cookie's (our little Chihuahua) birthday. Her's was on the 22nd of January. She turned 13 :-) Anyway, sounds like your daughter, her friends and Walter had a blast.

Oh, and Sandy, just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten about Lula's dress. As soon as I get a chance I'll run to the fabric store to pick up some material to get started. Wishing you a wonderful day.
