It's My Party.....

Two weeks ago we hosted a double 1st Birthday Party since having two separate parties (a couple of days apart--James is only 3 days older than Laney) where the same people would have been invited would have been perhaps a bit too much. James' mommy, Cassie, and I decided to go with a Western Themed party, seeing that we're in Texas 'n all. It was a lot of fun.....we had grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, chips, baked beans, fresh veggies and dip......and can't forget about the CAKE and ice cream.


Laney sitting with her fellow birthday friend, James, in front of a cowboy pinata (the pinatas down here are just amazing).

I found the cutest red bandana pillowcase dress on Esty and just had to have it...it was so perfect for the theme...and she just looked darling in it, especially with the bow which she definitely was not sure about.

And just as she was unsure about the bow, she didn't know what to do with the cake. She definitely didn't "dig right in". However, she tried a couple of times to bite it.

We were so blessed to have Randy's family (Mom, Dad, Sister and nephew) make the 12 hour drive down from West Texas so that they could celebrate Laney's birthday with us.

Looks like fun!! The cake is so cute - did you make those? And of course, I love the dress!

OMG! I love the theme of the party! Everything is just so cute - the dress, the cakes, the invite - love it all!

I so will need that etsy address. I may have my mom copy the idea, but then again maybe not, I already have her doing lots of projects. But the dress would be super cute for the Pecos Rodeo.

SO super cute! GREAT cakes!! We are having an "ace of cakes" themed competition where the public is going to create anniversary cakes for the hospital and then they will be judged at the mall...of course we all thought of you, haha. Did you get to reuse your Martinez belly bandana or lights? haha!

I especially love the pictures of Laney in her headband. What a cutie! The party was definitely more for us than the kiddos, but at least we'll have pictures to show them someday so they'll know we went all out for their first birthday. :)
