How is it that my baby is FIVE?

Yesterday my baby girl turned...gulp...five. That just sounds so much older than four!

It was a school morning, so we were up bright and early. Note C's yawn ;) (and the fact that it is still very dark outside!)
We all went into her room to wake her up singing "Happy Birthday"

It may have been her birthday, but that didn't mean she wanted to be awake!

She quickly woke up enough to check out her presents.

What's that? A dog bed?

Yes, we have lost our minds, but AP and C are looking at pictures of the new puppy that will be joining our family on Good Friday.

I joined AP's class later that day at lunchtime. AP set up all the plates and treats for her little party.

She pointed out her birthday on the calendar.

Everybody's ready for sugary sweets!

Love that smiling girl!

Last night C was supposed to have baseball pictures and a game, so we didn't have any other celebrations planned. However, it was storming and all baseball plans were canceled so we stopped by the store and AP picked out this little puppy cake.

I am so very thankful for my spunky, passionate, feisty, determined, intelligent, creative, independent, inquisitive, nurturing, and loving little social butterfly!!

You're too young to have a five-year-old daughter.

Boy, what a morning mug on AP. A classic.

Wish her a happy birthday from proud uncle.
