party hearty-ing

so aves turned 4 this weekend...i just cant believe it!! so many fantastic friends came in town and a few friends from school and we party heartied til we could not stand to see another heart. it was so fun. the decor is pretty dorky and homemade but aves was super excited and very into shapes and hearts. so sweet.
it all started with the heart wreath that i just glued hearts onto a styraphome circle...nothing fancy.

and we found these inflatable hearts that are so great and i made a heart garland out of fabric scraps

needless to say, she loved it even though i forgot to put the drinks out (and the heart ice that i made for them), we forgot to sing happy birthday and it was 38 degrees outside!! hahaha...oh well...im not always on top of things (ok, so actually i am never on top of things!!)
thanks to everyone who came and traveled and made and gave the most creative presents!! (check out lindsay's cute felt dolls and allison's adorable dress. no one else has a blog but everyone was so thoughtful to give her such sweet gifts) it was such a fun party hearty!

FABULOUS! I love all the decorations, hair clips and t shirts. (which the first time I tried to spell t shirts it came as t-$*@ts). I need more sleep. and a more christian-esc spell check. :)
