This little cutie had a birthday.
And thank goodness she didn’t ask for a princess party (again). I was thrilled with her idea of a cowgirl party. What fun we had! Little kid parties around our house are kept pretty simple, though I dream of the non student husband days when I can go all out. Until then, this was the perfect cowgirl party on a budget.
It began with the pocket book friendly cowgirl attire.
-50 cent Hankerchief
-1 dollar hat with a 1 dollar crown glued to it
-4 dollar boots found at the thrift store that just happened to be the perfect size.
-And a Hankerchief skirt that cost me a total of 1 dollar to make.
Perfect for the 3 amigos.
Equipped with the best lookin’ cowboy in town (no you cannot have him).
Of course it’s best if the birthday cowgirl isn’t scared to death of horses.
She looks like she is having a blast doesn’t she? At least she got on the thing with her cute aunt.
The little ones loved feeding the horse. Luckily, no fingers were lost.
Then we had some fun with some shoot-em-up target practice games. The guns cost 2 bucks and probably won’t last long, but it was a huge hit with the kids.
Then we had present time.
Even kids love money. Thanks Grandma!
Now, just look what her uncle MADE for the cowgirl!
Genuine, real cowhide chaps to match daddy’s. These things were so amazing we had to take off the cute skirt to put them on!
Just look how cute that bum looks it those! (If you are interested in buying some of these, he does make and sell all sizes. Email me if you are interested).
And finally, the birthday cake made with love from her daddy. I mentioned before I don’t do cakes. They just don’t cooperate like fabric.
And yes (if you noticed that droplet on her lip), she did spit all over the cake trying to blow out the candles.
