"Birthday Plans"

Ava will be turning 4 on the 21st. We are planning her birthday for the following Saturday. I've kind of waited until almost the last minute to get out her invites for the party. Yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby to see what I could find. I've kind of been on the fence about a theme because I didn't want to spend too much money and I wanted to have it at my mom and dad's house. So, I browsed the invitation aisle at Hob-Lob and after much thought, chose the theme.

We are going with a "carnival" theme. I wish I had taken a picture of her invitations, but I used every last one of them. This is her first party where we've invited pre-school friends, so I hope some of them get to come. I have to come up with a cake now, I've already booked a popcorn machine, cotton candy machine, and one inflatable. We are going to have face painting, some "carnival-ish" games, and my brother and brother-in-law have volunteered to dress up as clowns! We are also going to have hotdogs and other refreshments.

I am really excited, and have thrown the "not spending much money" out the window...

I am so glad that Ava and Archer's birthdays are 6 months apart, and not close to Christmas!

I will be posting more about the party later...


  1. Aw, sounds like you're really going all out on the birthday! I bet she will love it!

  2. Birthday is comes one times in a year.We have to celebrate that with a full of joy and making it memorable for that we have to invite all our friends in the birthday party.
