The only decent family picture we got that day - in all the rest of them Ava was touching her eye... such a weird child..
Her cakes... and let me say.. her big cake was NOTHING like I'd hoped. I was very disappointed when I picked it up and saw it.. It just looks a little sloppy to me.. the writing is off center... it was not anything like I asked it to be, though it does match the tablecloth remarkably well. Go figure... I guess it was ok because it tasted so incredible. Half chocolate and half vanilla with strawberry filling....mmmmmmmmmmmm!
Close up of the
At least her little cake was cute
The birthday girl shrine... notice the round balloon with a 1 and polka dots. I gave them a plate that looked exactly like that and THAT was what the cake was supposed to look like...
So our daughter is like an animal... she went from person to person (more like plate to plate) opening her mouth for food. She seriously was like a puppy dog. She even went up to someone's plate and picked something off of it and ate it!
Even though my mouth was in the middle of talking, I love this picture of us. She looks like such a big girl!!
She did really well opening the first few presents...
Then it was over because she wanted to play with the toys she'd already seen!
And then she was ready to dig in to her cake!
Happy birthday, dear Ava!!
She definitely enjoyed that. I had to take the cake away because she ate half of it and I didn't want her to get a tummy ache!
The party was great and it was so wonderful to see Ava have such a great time.
She spent a good portion of the party running around with a huge smile on her face! She picked up very quickly that the day was about her and she loves being the center of attention! She had an absolute blast and seeing her enjoy herself so much was priceless!
*****I totally meant to put on here where I got Ava's shirt - so since I got a comment this morning and some questions IRL about it, here is where I got it:
Trucks and Tutus Boutique
Y'all, this girl is talented! She's only been sewing for a few months - can you believe it? She was so great to work with and the shirt turned out better than I'd hoped! And she can do ALOT! So check her out!
