Olivia's Birthday Party

Today, we had Olivia's birthday party. Her actual birthday is this Thursday. It was a GREAT party. Ever since Olivia was a baby, she has loved the song, "The Ants Go Marching." I still sing it to her almost every night to help her go to sleep. When I was trying to decide on a birthday theme, I knew I had to do a picnic theme, complete with red and white checkered tablecloths, sack lunches and ants, of course.

Every year, we have a cake for Logan since we also celebrate the day that he was born.

I just had to show off my watermelon cutting skills.

Here is my mom helping me get everything ready. What would I do without her?

Look at all of those presents!

I couldn't believe that all three of them actually sat at the little kids' table.

We even had outdoor seating to enjoy the beautiful day.

Katie's doll, Emmy, was enjoying the picnic.

And Izzy was enjoying Katie's doll, Emmy.

Here is Olivia in her new car, the #1 selling car in America. . .the Cozy Coupe.

She got an Elmo Live!

Elmo Live entertained us all. . .young and old. He was hilarious!

Here is Olivia giving her baby a kiss. . .

And holding her new baby for the first time.

Olivia's aunt, Kim, sketched this picture of Olivia. It is amazing!!!

Taking the one and only bite of her cupcake. . .

Olivia had to go for a ride on her new horse that we've named Fred!

Thank you to everyone for making this day so very special for all of us.

Looks like you guys had a great time. That picture is fantastic. OK you got to tell me - should I get Avery the horsie or the car for Christmas?

Cristi. . .the horse would provide lots of indoor fun while it's cold outside. When is her birthday again? Maybe the car come springtime?
