Averi’s Big Bash

Averi’s birthday was Saturday and we had a little birthday party for her. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and it was warm enough for the kids to play outside.

Here’s the invitation I made. I made it in Photoshop and just printed out 5X7 prints and stuck them in the mail.

Here’s the birthday girl in her party outfit. Don’t you just love her hot pink shoes?!

Jim got a few shots of me with the birthday girl-I am so happy we were blessed with this little ray of sunshine. She completed our family!

I had so much fun making things for her party. I bought a clip art kit from Etsy and used it to make her invitation, cupcake toppers, a banner and tags for the party favors. I loved how everything turned out and how easy it was!







While the kids played outside, the adults enjoyed the yummy food--nuggets from Chick-fil-A, spinach dip, and bacon bread were a few of things we had


Jim had to get a picture of me holding Tessa on Averi’s birthday. Tessa is my little buddy, if I’m around she wants me to hold her. Usually I end up holding her and Averi and it reminds me of when Kaylee & Matthew were little. I love little Tessa.

The weather was perfect for the bounce house. We kicked the big kids off so that Averi & Tessa could go on it. They had so much fun on the bounce house. That bounce house was the best purchase ever!

Look at those blue eyes!

I made Averi’s cake. I checked a flower cake pan out from the library and decorated it myself. She was so excited to dig in! She really enjoyed it!


The kids were so cute singing to Averi and watching her eat her cake. They were excited to finally get to eat a cupcake!



She had fun opening her presents and was excited about the new toys she got, so was Kaylee!

The party wore everyone out. Matthew crashed around 6 and slept till the next morning. I love this picture of Jim reading to Averi and Thomas, the perfect end to a a perfect birthday!

It really was a great day. You did such a wonderful job with everything. The food was to die for. My favorite had to be the icing and the popcorn. Oh, and the hot pink shoes.
Thanks for the invitation and loving my little Tess.
