mini hairpins for the little girls
i made big ones for us big girls too :0)
favor bags for the kiddies
stuffed owls for the boys, made some for the girls too but didn't get to take pictures
felt crowns for all of our little guests
owl crayons, these came out terrible but i spent so much time making them that i still included them in the favor bags.
I made a trillion (okay a bit of an exaggeration) paper pom poms and put them everywhere!
owl love :0)The Party
Rory's crown stayed on for maybe a whole 3 seconds
we had lots of yummy treats
cake for everyone, made by my amazing friend ashley
cake for rory (she got her own so that the rest of us didn't have to eat drool)
simply exhausted and surrounded by a million new toys
just us girls hanging out on rory's birthday a few days after the party. daddy was out of town :0(
Oh, I'm so glad to finally get this posted! It has been on my mind for two months now. Rory's party was so much fun, and I had a blast making all of the decorations and treats for it. I had planned a mushy post going on about how I just can't believe that she is one and where did the time go. I still feel mushy and I truly can't believe that she is one (well 14 months now) but I will spare you my sappy feelings on this subject. Any mother out there already knows what it feels like...sad and beautiful and amazing and crazy and so many other things.
Next up, a homemade valentine's day and some sharing of a valentine's day card swap I took part in. This will be posted promptly...well, before easter anyway. hehe just kiddin!
