Gabe's parents were so wonderful and decided to host the party for us since we invited 75 people. We ended up with about 35 showing up (yes I was a little bummed-we had around 60 for Avery's)...the number dwindled the closer the day got due to a lot of illness going around.
Gabe, the girls and I headed to his parents house around 2pm. Cassandra went down for a nap shortly after we got there (and slept through the first half hour of the party!) and we did some decorating and setting up. Gabe and I ran out to get balloons filled and when we got back, my Mom, Aunt, and Dad had shown up already!
We did a balloon theme for the party-sister loves her balloons! When we got them filled at the store, we knew she would be so excited when she saw them....look how great they look (we had another set of them just like this too!):

Cassandra was very happy to have all of the balloons home with us....here she is today enjoying them, even though they're deflated!! I'm sure they'll be around until there's nothing left to them!
