My little girl is 5 years old! She has always acted older than her age.. but now she looks old too! For her birthday dinner we went to Beau Jo's for pizza (YUMM!) and they had a balloon artist there. He made these awesome Alien and Viking hats for the kids. Alex put his on and said, "oh no, I'm a girl!" But the artist assured Alex that ALL Vikings have long braided hair :)
We had a party for Miss Lydia, who would invite the whole world to a party if she could. It was very hard to keep it small. My mom and Dave's mom helped out so I would have enough hands for everything. It went really well.
I am not a cake decorator. Lydia asked for a cake that looks like grass with Barbies sitting on top. I laughed when she asked, and I still laugh when I see it now. Hopefully she'll always be happy with colored frosting and some toys sitting on top, because this is the most complicated I do :)
