Happy 10th, Ava!

Ava had a nearly month-long birthday celebration (with more to come) for her 10th year. Double-digits are a big deal for kids, and this felt like a real milestone from my perspective, too. Ten years! Ten.

We began with angel food cake at my mom’s early in the month, a family tradition I’m so glad she carries forward.

On the 24th, we bookended the occasion with blueberry pancakes and dinner with Tom and Katie.

For the first time, my number cookies weren’t numbers.

Then, last Saturday, the main event: a pop star party and sleepover for six friends, with Taylor Swift karaoke, a whole of fun and very, very little sleep.

Happy birthday, Ava! I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.

  1. Wow! Happy birthday, dear sweet Ava! I remember holding you in Madison when you were just weeks old. I am amazed by the young woman you are turning into!

    This is the #1 party of all time .. So far! I love the new haircut, the stage is incredible, the cupcakes are perfect as always – how are you going to top this one? Ava is radiant!
