Ainsley's 1st Birthday Party...Sneak Peak!!

I can't believe that a year ago our Ainy Bug wasn't even here yet & I was hoping that the difficult pregnancy would soon be over.  Of course, all the problems that I suffered through for 4 out of the 9 months suddenly cleared up the week I was going to be induced.  Two more weeks of waiting & finally I was 39 weeks along & I was able to be induced without anything to stop it.

I arrived at the hospital at 5am, was hooked up to the pitocin by 6am & was told that our baby girl would probably be here by 5 pm if everything continued at the same rate.  Well...22 hours later, at 4:00 am on Sunday, October 31, 2010, Miss Ainsley Bryn decided that she was ready to make her entrance into the world.  Wouldn't you know it, she came on the one day that I said I did NOT want her to be born on.  By that point, I honestly didn't care.  I was just so ready to have her in my arms that it didn't matter if she was born in October, November, or even on Halloween.  No matter what the day is called, it was still the day that the Lord had made & we did rejoice in it!

A year has flown by. Here we are less than a month from her birthday & I have kicked into party planning mode. I orignally had designed an owl theme for Ainsley's birthday. However, I decided to list this in my etsy shop & it has quickly become my biggest seller! Knowing that I wanted something unique for my baby girl, I decided to design a new theme. This will not be listed until after her party, but I did want to give a little sneak peak! It was inspired by Woodland Animals & Little Red Riding Hood...making it Ainsley's Forest Friends party. Perfect for a late autumn birthday party. No...I did NOT want a halloween themed party. How tired would that become after years of birthdays? (not to mention that it goes against our Christian beliefs) Every kid gets to have fun getting candy on that day. I want Ainsley to have her own special day each year anyway!

So, enjoy the sneak peak at Ainsley's party theme. Look for the invitation & printable party decor to be listed in the store starting the first weekend in November. I will share my planning details as they are available.
