Loving my new lens:)

  • Stephanie - Beautiful pictures! What lens did you get?

  • Johanna - 50mm 1.4

  • Richelle - Where did you get her adorable scarf?

  • Amanda Keeys - Goodness me, when did she start looking so grown up? Lovely.

  • johanna - I guess around the same time Piper did :( Boohoo!

  • johanna - It is one of my scarves chopped in half then sewn together. :) From Target.

  • Nancy - Precious as usual and she does look so grown up, eeek. Stop the clock!!

Because our girls’ birthdays are so close together and we live 3 hours away from all of our family and 80% of our friends, we decided to be nice to everyone (and ourselves) and only have 1 joined party vs 2 separates. That way everyone only had to drive to our house once. We are so glad we did it this way! It was awesome. Even though it’s Winter, I went with a farm theme anyway. I’m afraid I’m plum out of Winter theme birthday party ideas. ;P I went a little overboard with the decorating as always. We have a lot of country style decor in our house already, so it worked well doing the farm theme. My mom and I made some ugly but delicious farm animal cake balls, I drew up some cute little animals character bag tags (that I completely forgot to hand out…..ugh), made a “picture you stick your head through thingy”, rented a pony and had a pinata. All of the kids had a blast!

The adults had fun too. So much that we kept the party going until after the kids went to bed.

  • Tiffany @ BabyList - So fun! Such great pictures!

  • Blair - Super fun party! Wish we could have stayed for the adult party :-). I think nancy ode that pony at least 6 times!

  • Nancy - What a great party! I think the cake ball animals were cute!!! Great job on all the homemade party stuff!! Hugs from Conroe, TX

  • Cindy - Oh my goodness, all of the pictures were precious. Looks like it was an extra fun birthday for the girls!

  • Aunt Jay - You did such a great job. Everyone had so much fun! I’m really glad Aub’s boot made it into your pictures 😉 LOVE YOU!

  • Heather - QUIT saying those cakeballs were ugly!!! You’re crazy – they were ADORABLE (+ yummy)

  • johanna - Yes mam Heather!

  • Dawn Ritchie - That party looks so fun! I loooove the painted pony!

  • Leanne - FABULOUS!!!!!! Totally love every thing you did. I’m in awe. I live on a farm…with three boys. WISH I had some cutey little girls around to dress up. Thank you for inspiring all of us! And Happy birthday to your sweet little girls.

  • johanna - Thank you so much Leanne! You should definitely throw a farm party!
