Janie climbed into bed with me the morning of her birthday and I said “happy birthday…you are five years old”. She said “now… right now I’m five?” This little girl loves a birthday just like her brother Gardner did as he was growing up….total excitement all day long, so sweet. She just wanted a party with her family….so we made her menu of choice: salmon, watermelon, green beans, cantaloupe and birthday cake. She ate every.last.bite! Ma Kitty and Grandpa Jim arrived that afternoon so it was even more special for her.
I surprised her with balloons first thing in the morning
…just a little excited:)
her breakfast with a candle before anyone else was up….
she could NOT wait until Daddy got home that afternoon to open her presents!
She loved her dress up costume from Ma Kitty and Grandpa Jim!
her princess castle cake was a hit:)
Gardner had graduation practice so he missed the birthday singing ect
she had to watch the video of her blowing her candles out with him!
She had the best of days
the next day we were walking across a parking lot and she said
“hey, I’m gonna be 5 lots of weeks?”
every day she wants to do more by herself
“cause I’m 5!”
She is the cutest 5 year old I know!!!
….what a great birthday she had!!
We had a super busy Friday
with John David’s 5th grade speech
and Madeline’s Mother’s Day program
Gardner’s graduation ceremony today…
I’ll catch up with pics soon!
