I Cannot Believe My Baby Girl is FIVE!!

Yesterday was my big girl's fifth birthday! It's still doesn't seem real! Today at church she told everyone she saw - "I'm five now, yesterday was my birthday!!" I think she was a little excited! We had a great party for her birthday - technically I guess she had two, though. We started off Saturday morning with the Children's Christmas Party that my company puts on every year. It's always great and the kids get a picture with Santa. Usually it's Emma in tears, but this year it was Aaron...I thought it was still a cute picture! This is just a phone pic of the real picture - I'll have to scan it later.

We were at the Children's part from about 10:00 that morning till noon - then we had to get Emma's Cupcake Cake and run a couple errands before heading off to her party. We were missing about 5 kiddos for various reasons, but still had a fun party crowd! This was the first year we didn't have her party at home and I have to say it was wonderful! I didn't lift a finger for this party except to buy the cake and they could have done that for me, too if I had wanted - but we let Emma pick out her own cake instead. And Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake Cake was her choice. Okay - have you ever bought a cupcake cake??? OhEmGee - there is a LOT of icing on those cakes! LOL! I don't think the kids minded, though. It was super yummy I have to admit!
The Party Animals
I'm not sure why, but I didn't eat during the party when everyone else did - I guess too busy partying! And since I hadn't eaten much all day to begin with I had a bad migraine by the end of the party. Towards the end I told Michael I had to get something to eat and some Coke and I did start to feel a little better. Last thing I wanted was to be sick on my girl's big day. I always try to take a Rocking Chair Birthday picture on the day of their birthday, but since I wasn't feeling well I didn't get it until today. I don't think one day made that much difference, though - ya think??? Though I realized after I started looking at the pictures and Emma was already in bed that I forgot to take one of her holding up her fingers to show her age - that's what we've always done in the past. So, sadly I might have to take more Rocking Chair Birthday pictures tomorrow - two whole days after her actual birthday - man I'm slacking!
I can't believe she is five!!


  1. I swear I will never do birthday parties at home again, then I do. I love parties away because they are soooo much easier. Let everyone else do the work.

  2. Happy Birthday to your little sweetie! The icing is the BEST part!! I know everytime I eat it I'll get a headache but I do it anyway because I love it so much!! Cute pics too!

  3. I am way behind on my blog reading.. I can't believe she is five already either! The time is just flying by us. Hope she had a wonderful birthday, as I know she did at her party!
