This past weekend I spent running around trying to get some things done for Ava's 1 year old birthday party. I was able to get some cool prizes and party ware. I am going with a purple butterfly theme. Wondering where I got this cool stuff? The Dollar Tree! I started off at Target and was extremely disappointed in their selection. Then, I was about to hit up a party supply store when I remembered hearing my mother say she got some great stuff at The Dollar Tree recently. What a great deal I got - 20 butterfly plates for $1 and matching accessories. Target wanted $1.99 for 8 plates and I did not even like their patterns. Needless to say, I was very pleased with my purchase.
So, this weekend is the big 1 year bash. I have to admit, I am shocked to realize a whole year has gone by, but at the same time, it feels like she was always with us. Overall, she is a great baby girl - although she has her drama mama moments. I love her sweet little smile, her cute little voice and her beautiful face. I love how she cuddles up to me for her bottles and how excited she is to see me. I love and admire how she has no fear. Most of all, I love watching her with David. She absolutely adores him. He can do wrong, even when he knocks her down. I am so thankful for her.
I'll let you know how her party goes and post some birthday pix.
Happy 1st Birthday Ava - we love you!
