Avery's 8th Birthday

How is it that our firstborn is turning 8???  

Well, I know its hard to imagine, but Avery wanted to have an American Girl birthday party this year. She invited a few friends (and their dolls) over to the house for crafts, games, pizza, and cupcakes. 

Their first craft was to make tutus for their dolls. We cut rolls of different colored toole up and I sewed elastic bands into circles. Then the girls could used whatever color combo they wanted as they made their tutus.  We also made and decorated treasure boxes. 

We had pizza, fruit kabobs, and watermelon cut into stars...Claire, Emily, Carson, Avery, Skylar, and Deeley....I should mention that Brent got really sick the night before so he was confined to our room and couldn't even enjoy the party!  I called Miss Jessie in for reinforcements though!!

and the doll table, of course
