this was gracie’s 3rd birthday party when we lived at “the little house”, the 700 sq. ft. house we rented while our house was being built up the street. thankfully gracie’s birthday is in may and the weather was beautiful – actually, really hot if i remember correctly.
we borrowed the great spring horses from friends and church and got hay bales from our local farm supply store. get this: they let us buy the hay bales and then suggested returning them if we didn’t want to keep them! so we used them for free!
i got hats for each of the little buckaroos from oriental trading company, and used bandanas to tie up their party favors (including some tiny plastic farm animals). my sister decorated the balloons like farm animals. shortly after martha started selling her own.
