Laura's Birthday Hoedown!

Here are some pictures of Lou-lou's Birthday Hoedown! She had around 60 guests at her party, and I think all of them had a blast boot-scootin' and hay-ridin'.

Here are most of her guests! Instead of presents, she asked that they bring a donation for The Arc of Dallas, a non profit serving individuals with disabilities. She was able to raise $270 for the charity! Thanks everyone!

Here they are about to leave for the hay ride. We didn't know how many people were coming until...well..they got there! They were a little smooshed, but we were happy to have enough room!
Mmm! The massive candy bowls. This was a hit.

One of Laura's friends volunteered to make cupcakes for the party. Look how cute they are! Thanks Anna lauren!

Some of the decor. I never have time to take as many pictures as I want to at parties like this, since I'm usually busy hostessing. We put these boots up in the trees and mixed lights in. They looked great!

Daniel and I gave a quick two-stepping lesson to all Laura's friends. I was nervous that the kids wouldn't appreciate it, but here they are - dancing away! It made me so proud. Mom and Dad even got a dance in!

AND here she is!
The woman of the hour. Laura and Chrissy posing on the saddle we brought in. That big "Howdy" sign was the first thing guests saw when they walked out the back door.
So now the big question is:
What will we do next year for Laura's birthday party?
Can't wait!
