Evy turns 4!!


Miss Evy turned four on December 21st and when your birthday is a few days before Christmas it means that celebrating can get overlooked.  We wanted to make her day special and after much discussion she decided a "rainbow horsey party" was just the way to celebrate the big 4! She invited a few friends from school, our neighbor, and the only boy to join in was her long time partner in crime Wesley. It was fun to plan this special day for our little Evy girl and it was the perfect way to kick off Christmas break too (even if it was crazy to add party planning to  busy December).

these sisters love any excuse to dress up

but Abishai was thoroughly unimpressed with the festivities

We had a rainbow fruit and veggie tray and horse shoe pizza. We take our theme seriously people.

Games were simple but fun: pin the tail on the horsey & "bozo buckets" with cowboy boots

Prayers by Papa thanking God for our Evy and asking His continued blessing on her life (I loved watching her face as Jason prayed- so sweet)

Singing 'Happy Birthday' to our big girl

Check out the inside of the cake! The girls' helped me make a tie-dyed cake the night before and it turned out pretty good and it was MUCH easier than Anni's rainbow cake from last year.


After Evy opened her gifts she gave everyone their goodie bag and a big thank you hug. I think it was my favorite part of the whole party.

One of our favorite things was posing everyone in the little "Wanted" poster Evy helped me make that morning (amazing what you can do with a cardboard box and some paint last minute). I love these pictures. Seriously adorable.

Bibi joined us and was on baby brother holding duty (we don't think she minded)



and even Joy stopped by!!

and even J & I had to get in on the fun!

All the cowpoke that helped Evy celebrate showing off their horses they made! And yes, this was teh best picture we could muster. Evy loved her party and we are so blessed that this little girl has been in our lives for 4 years.

Happy 4th to our feisty, hilarious, sweet, and funny little cowgirl!
