Birthday Bash

Here are a few more pictures from Annie's party.  If you missed the first post from her party, you can find it here.  Annie loved her party and is still talking about it.  I think her friends loved it, too. 

Since the girls were asked to bring their favorite baby dolls and a stroller, it only seemed fitting to have a bowl and spoon for the girls to feed them at the table.  The bowls were pink and blue with sweet little animals on them.  Each girl took one set home in their goody bags.

Each goody bag had a few diapers for the babies, the bowl and spoon, candy, a Cabbage Patch cup, some little birthday blow-outs, a birthday hat, and a pink bracelet.  The girls also had a vinyl place mat to color when they arrived.

The place cards, cupcake toppers and invitations were all made by Serena at Rylie Boo Events.  Serena is wonderful to work with and comes up with the cutest ideas!

Annie's sitter made the cupcakes.  They were delicious!  However, she didn't get to do the icing due to her mother-in-law passing away.  Therefore, I made the icing.  It was very yummy, but turned out slightly orange.  THAT is why I don't like to bake.

Seriously, don't laugh.

The food was simple.  Chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-a, Cheetos, grapes, chips, etc.  Not healthy, but they enjoyed it.

Jennifer (my sister) and her daughter (Lucy) came up from Griffin.  Jenn and I cheated and hired a sitter for the night before the party so we could go to dinner and do a little shopping.  It was sooooo much fun....and relaxing.    I am grateful for my time with her. 

Annie's newest friend, Madison came to the party.  She is precious.  Her mom and I used to teach together.  Hopefully we will again soon.

Annie and Taylor (below) have been friends since they were 3 months old.  They have the best time together.  Yep, there is that orange icing again.  Geez.

Lucy is a stinker. 

Annie and her friend, Kaelyn.  They play together every day. 

With the exception of the icing, the party was perfect. 

Happy Birthday, sweet Annie!

I was thinking that would be the craziest thing if they really were neighbors, but i'll bet your parents home is in GA, right?
