I am super excited to share Ava Greer's 5th Birthday on my blog, but I decided I wanted to go back in time first. This post will be on her 1st birthday and I will work my way up to her 5th.
Of course, I can't remember all of the details, but reminiscing on her first birthday sure does bring back sweet memories. My dear friend Holly is a pro at party planning and executing the most fabulous parties ever!!!! She is one of the most talented people I have ever met and she has helped me with all the birthday parties I've done. Most of the things I do are her ideas. Holly and I went to college together, but reconnected while they were living in Birmingham and we both had newborn baby girls! We had lots of craft dates together and I had the privilege of helping her with some HollyDays work during the Christmas season in 2009. I seriously enjoyed it so much! We sure did laugh a lot while working! Holly quickly became one of my closest friends. She is a wonderful example of a Godly wife and mother...a proverbs 31 woman. She is selfless beyond words and where some wouldn't want to share their great ideas, she always put the most thought and creativity into helping me plan as she would her own baby girl. So, for Ava Greer's first birthday Holly really led me through it. We decided to do the same theme so we could share things and hopefully save on costs. An example of that selfless spirit I was telling you about...Ava Greer is 5 weeks older than Karidyn so her birthday was a month before Karidyn's. Holly didn't think twice about sharing things she made though or holding anything back because she wanted Karidyn's party to be better. I seriously love this girl! Can you tell?!? She is such a wonderful example of how God wants us to treat others. I want my friends to be able to say the same thing about me.
So, let's get on with the party... It was a PINK PINK PINK Cupcake party.
I hope you enjoyed this post and flashback from Ava Greer's 1st Birthday.
