We were all set to celebrate Kiki's birthday ~
Both Kiki and Shotzie had been planning, prepping, and primping for the past month.....
The "barn" was set up outside on the gals' new patio....
But I will tell y'all the vittles were dee-licious....

A very special "shout out" to
- Monica and Carlos (a real cowboy!) for the loan of the cattle skull, saddle, hay bales, horse shoes, and bridle
- Chris for building the direction sign you saw at the beginning of the picture show
- Our extended Phoenix family "sisters," "daughters" ~ Nancy, Ashley, and Lacey for the apple pies and s'mores and for hauling so much fabulous decor to add to ours ~ not to mention their helping in getting set up for Hoedown
- All the wonderful camera-shy guests who also helped to make the hoedown so awesome ~ Jeremy, Abe, and Cindy ~ sorry I don't have your pix
Sending you sunny skies, sunflowers, and blessings for a spectacular week!
