...sara's 5th birthday...


yep, my baby turned FIVE earlier this month. i told her she wasn't allowed to get any older because i was convinced she would stop snuggling with me, and that would make me sad. she's agreed to continue snuggling with me, and every day since she turned 5  i'm making her pay up on her promise. i'm still sad that she's growing up, but i guess if she keeps snuggling i can deal...

i've been feeling really bad about not blogging something for her birthday, so even though i'm two weeks late, i'm posting some pictures. here goes the highlights:

on her actual birthday, my mom came over and we all went to a hibachi lunch.  the girls loved it, and we even went  again the same week with friends. the place up the street has a hibachi lunch for 5 BUCKS. (hibachi +5 bucks = fabulousness!) they gave us fried chocolate ice cream and that was a first for all of us. here's the pic of us digging in...

We had some dear friends from Orlando drive in that day for the week, so we celebrated later with a cookie cake and presents.  (notice the high school musical wrapping paper- she liked that better than the gifts!)
The next morning we piled in the minivans (still gasping 2 years later) and headed to the American Girl store for a birthday brunch with the babies.  They each brought a doll and had a ball!  It's a perfect place to take girls for a celebration- anna katherine is already planning her party there and it's not until december!
After a celebratory few days, the birthday parties were done and life went on.  and like i said earlier, as long as i can get some snuggling, i think i can deal with my baby growing up on me. so far so good.

Wow. Sara looks so much older. I cannot believe she is five. Where did the time go?
