Don't be tardy to the party

But if you're a mere 3 and a half months posting pictures of the event, well...yeah.

So, back in October (hangs head in shame), Big A had a big birthday. Number 5! We celebrated like gangbusters and then came 3 major holidays, an anniversary, a big trip and well, here we are. Let's take a step back into yester-year to recap the celebration.

My birthday girl. She loves some polka dots.

For those of you just joining us, hubby gives the birthday girl roses for her birthday. One rose for every year we're celebrating. And he's done this since they were born. Yeah, he's a keeper.

For the home celebration, we picked up a few cupcakes and had a mini-party before bedtime on her actual birthday.

And this is the look of getting EXACTLY what you asked for.

I really have to say that our parties are a lot of fun. We have a lot of GREAT friends who are not afraid to get down and play with all of the kids. It's a blast to watch!

Despite Little A's look of horror, the party was a big success and we were so glad to share it with everyone. It's so hard to believe that I've got a 5 year old. They grow up entirely too quickly!

I love little A's face, it says I am the strong silent type that doesn't like to be interupted while eating icing or sweets of any kind :).

That totally looks like a blast.

She looks so adorable in her polka dot dress! Where did you get it?

I am a trampoline fanatic. The very minute that Sophie is big enough, we are getting one.

M is a big fan of the polka-dots, too.

Looks like the party was fun! Sad I missed it... but I know my girls loved being there :)

Her dress is just so adorable! And that cake...almost too pretty to eat!

Happy (belated) birthday Big A!
