Ava’s birthday celebrations

I have several things I’ve needed to blog about since last weekend, but our week last week was busy, hectic, filled with the unexpected and I just didn’t get around to it. So now I’ll attempt to catch up.

The night before Ava’s birthday, we invited over some of the girls in her class for a party. She asked for a girls only party this year and she had specific things she wanted to do so we tried to do those things she wanted.IMG_4829       

We started with pizza for dinner. Like Grant in the background? His daddy had to come pick him up halfway through the party because he couldn’t hang.IMG_4837  

Ava had asked if we could do a craft so we found some bracelet making kits. I seriously underestimated the amount of help the girls would need for these. They had fun but it wasn’t as hands on for them as I had hoped. Some of them got it and some of them needed a little more help.IMG_4841IMG_4846 IMG_4847

The other specific request Ava had was to play bingo with M&Ms. I found some cute printable candy bingo cards on Etsy and then gave the girls a cup of M&Ms.



She looks so old to me in this photo!IMG_4881

And of course no party is complete without cupcakes!!!IMG_4886IMG_4920 

She had a great time with her friends and went to bed for the last time as a six year old!   IMG_4928 

We started the morning of seven off with muffins for breakfast! IMG_4931

She was given some lip gloss from her friend Luci and she decided she needed to try it on that morning. She might need a little work ;)IMG_4932   

That morning, she and I went to get our toes done! She enjoyed the big pedicure chair and the massage it gave her!IMG_5057IMG_5059We took our annual picture with our fingers. I’m not sure what we’ll do when she goes past 10!    IMG_5070It’s hard to believe we’ve been parents for seven years. We are still not even close to being experets and have a lot to learn, but are loving this ride!      IMG_5076 IMG_5077IMG_5079 

She impatiently waited all day to open her gifts from us. She sure was ready!!! IMG_5081 IMG_5082

And we had a few cupcakes leftover so we had to sing and blow out candles one more time!      IMG_5088IMG_5090     

I think she had a pretty good birthday!!! And lucky for her, since we have family spread all out, we have a couple more celebrations coming up for her! She loves that her birthday goes on for a long time! :)


  1. Haha I cracked up over the lip gloss photo. That is great!! Such a fun age.

  2. Fun pics! We found out this year at Katie's 11th birthday that you get a sibling or friend to hold up the extra needed digit(s). ;-) Or, one hand holds up the tens place and the other hand holds up the ones place. Ha ha! Just thought I'd share. :-)
