Maya's Birthday Party

Maya had six of her friends over for a "cowgirl" party.

These are the cute cowgirls...

(Eden gave me the idea of cutting half a bagel into a horseshoe shape and putting it on the cake.)


These are the cute hankies the girls made...

This was the very short game of horseshoes that they played...

(It was like 100 degree that day, no one wanted to be outside)


So that's what Maya's birthday party looked like.  She had a great time and was a very good sport about having her little sister be the "helper".

I loved Edee's appearance in most of the photos, especially the movie photo.

You make me feel like the laziest Mom with all your fancy, pants birthday cakes & parties.

What a cute and creative party. Those are some pretty cute cowgirls, especially the one with the vest :)

As I type this, my daughter is full on dancing to your playlist (Cotton Eyed Joe)

Everything is adorable!! Love the costumes, the craft, the invites, and the game. A+!

I tried to talk my kids into a cowgirl/cowboy party this year but it was a no go. I'm thinking that next year I'll just have to use my Mommy powers to make it happen. ;)
