It's going to be a rootin-tootin-good-time!

Ava's 1st Bday Invite
I am making my shopping list for Ava's Birthday Party... The theme is Cowgirl so I'm thinking the best way to go is to grill out (burgers, potato salad, baked beans, appetizers/ snacks & all the yummy drinks you can imagine). I suppose I'll have to put out some non-alcoholic options (Gah!) for the kiddos. :)

I have been gathering all of the decorations as well as making things to put around the condo for the big day. I even have props for people to wear that aren't already dressed like Cowboys/ Gals.

We have family coming from all over. I'm so excited to see all of them. We're expecting around 30 people so our condo will be tightly packed. I can't wait.

This will be our last shindig at this home which is bittersweet. In fact, now that I think about it... maybe I should save all of these decorations. I can use them at the new house when we throw another western birthday party... only at this party-- we can get ponies! Yeee-frickin-haw y'all! So this means Ava will have a repeat theme or Baby #2 (No... I'm not pregnant) will be a future Cowgirl/ Boy.

I look forward to all the fun we'll have. I have a sneaky feeling that I'll get a little emotional though. This year has BLOWN by. I know I was warned... but it's still VERY hard to believe.

yay for ava!! kids bday parties are so fun. since you have props for everyone you should set up a "photo booth". it's really popular right now at weddings and parties. it's hilarious and it would be a great thing (the pic of the person) to stick in the thank yous...
