The Party

The Invitation

The Birthday girl and her Birthday outfit

The amazing cake made by my sister-n-law Jana

The Birthday banner that took me about 4 ridiculous hours to make

The picture with Uncle Greg and Aunt Jana that turned out totally beautiful

The attempt at a family photo that turned us into the Squinty McSquintersons

The sweet Mimi who is ready to party!

The adorable friends that came and showered Hollyn with great gifts!
Lucy, Lorelei, Everett, Cambry, Hollyn, Shelby, Cade, and Callie

oh my goodness! these pictures are unbelievably precious! And love the ones of you all squinting. I sent Hollyn's gift today--you should receive it soon!

Jana said...

Great pictures! I really like the one of Hollyn's "surprise" face as she is opening presents. I hadn't seen that one. You made her birthday party so cute. Hollyn will love looking back at all those pictures.

These are great pictures!! I love Hollyn's outfit! I hope I have a girl one day so I can pick out cute dresses like that. And you are quite creative making that banner, it turned out awesome! It looks like you guys had a great party. The picture of ya'll squinting made me laugh... super cute!! :)

Oh and the place where I edit my pictures is www.picnik.com. I paid $25 for the premium membership and the things I can do with my pictures is incredible and soo soo easy. I don't have time to learn photoshop and so this site is great! All you have to do is upload your pictures to their site and edit away...anything you can imagine you can do.
