I have already told you about Ava's party...but this was actually Ava's BIRTHDAY. That's right, my baby is officially 6. Ava spent the night with my mom the night before her birthday, which kind of altered some of my birthday plans. I knew she had been dying to spend the night with her Mema, so we made the most of it.
I had found an idea on pinterest to fill up the room with balloons the night before your child's birthday (while they are sleeping), so that when they wake up in the morning, they have a birthday surprise. Well, since she was gone, it didn't go quite according to plan, but she did come back first thing in the morning and was greeted by her birthday balloons. Ava's response: "What the heck?!?" That's my Ava. She loved them. It was actually even better than I thought it would be. She played in her room with all of her balloons all morning. We had to drag her away when it was time for church. We had told Ava that we had a surprise for her on her big day, and she thought it was the balloons. Wrong. There was even more!!
