Chick-fil-A Birthday Party

Emma Grace with her sister and cousins at her Chick-fil-A Birtday Party.

I have never met a child that loves chicken so much. And we (her parents) are so happy about that because she loves going to Chick-fil-A, one of our families favorite spots. We used to live right down the highway from one {Jenks, OK}. Then it was the next town over {10 min drive to Fort Smith, AR}. Now we drive 30 {to Owasso, OK}  mins to enjoy all this goodness packed into one store. 

So it was natural that when I asked this child of mine where she would like to have her birthday party, she shouted, "CHICK-FIL-A"!!! I was so happy that we were able to celebrate her 5th birthday when we were in Alabama this January. We have never had the opportunity to celebrate with our Sanford side of the family on Emma's birthday before due to us living 7 - 12 hours away. Here are a few {14 pics of the party. 

See the cute little pennant banner I made. Ha Ha I used what I had. Thank you cards cut up, staples to hold them together and toothpicks to stake it. Hey I think I did a pretty good job.

Here are the gift bags I did for the cousins. This was that thank you card I cut to look like tags {I think this is so cute! I was so proud of myself for this thought! I still am can you tell =) } and added so simple ribbon and stapled shut. Also I added the guests initial in the bottom right hand of the tag so I would know what we inside. I got goodies according to age and gender. No boy wants a pink princess ring! 

Here is our family posing with the birthday girl!  Happy Birthday baby, we love you! 

She had a great time. Can you tell? 

And here is Baby Ava! How can you not fall in love with that face! 

This birthday was everything I had hoped for. Lots of laughs and smiles, making memories with our family. 

I know birthday can get out of hand... what is your goal(s) behind throwing a birthday for your child?

Baby Ava, Sweet Birthday Gift

It has totally been a while since my last post.
Many things have changed since this chapter has started.
That best birthday present ever that I mentioned... she is pretty great!
The Lord worked it out so that we got to drive to Alabama and see her the day after she came home from the hospital. The girls were in awe of her... and I can't lie, so was I!

... who wouldn't be after seeing this!

We also were able to have a birthday party for Emma Grace and one of our favorite places ever,
Chick-fil-a and had such a great time! All of the Bama family came! ( I'll have to post pics of that later.)
