You've been waiting such a long time for this age!
You love to read these days...

You've had this "Animal Alphabet" book since you were a baby. 
Reading on Shelf
 I love your scrunched face when you're concentrating on sounding out your letters....

I'd be confused too...why does "xenops" start with an "x" but sound like a "z" mommy?

Some things you read make you guffaw. I happened to capture you mid-guffaw and I still chuckle over this picture. I think I'll look at this whenever I'm feeling blue.

Other things make you giggle. You're at the age now where if I say "underwear", you cover your mouth and giggle away. Oh to be five.

You're only five and there's so much more to look forward to....your first day of Kindergarten, your first loose tooth, your first time riding a bike without training wheels. 
You can't wait to do all these things...
I know you wish you'd hurry up and grow up, but we wish you'd slow down a little. Every year, I swear it seems like yesterday that I brought you home from the hospital...I guess my way of trying to slow down time is to take a million pictures.
Happy birthday to my little girl~

Spalicious - Full Post

First of all, I'd like to note that I have some crazy talented friends. 

This party was thrown by three amazing mommies for their daughters - all of the girls were turning 6 and shared the same birthday month...and what better way to celebrate than treating the girls to a SPA party!
By combining their guest list, talents and resources, they were able to throw an awesome, memorable event for their girls in one of their homes and not break the bank - brilliant.

The moms enlisted a couple of the girls' dearly loved Sunday school teachers as 'helpers' at the different stations [foot massage/pedicure, manicures, hair, decorating their own slippers] and some of the moms also pitched in to pamper the daughters. On my end, I couldn't stop smiling at all the little details that they put into the party...from the little nail dryers to the white bathrobes, it was all perfect. 

To three special little girls - who are really not so little any more - you are dearly loved~
