Birthday Bliss

Well we had a little 5 year old Birthday Bliss.  Sophia was so delighted I had to tether her down to keep her safe from the light fixtures. As her birthday was on a Thursday she had our family birthday and then the friend birthday.  Today is all about friends!
The gang's all here!

Beading name necklaces.

A little help from a friend.

Orion Love! (look at that cutie patootie)

Girl Bags

Gabe and the boy bag.

Aww the cake.  Kai (Kellan) in the middle visited Sophia on her first day of life in his Mommies tummy.  This is one of Phia's favorite birth stories.

If you know Sophia you have heard of Sydney.  Two peas in a pod!

The barbie palace!  Yes there are super hero's in there.

Barbie Fairies... Thanks to Mom for supplying real food on the side for the adults to eat.  This cake was swweeet!

We had a bit of a blowing out the candles fiasco  but there she is our 5 year old doing her stuff!
Special Thanks to everyone for coming. We are so lucky to have such special friends!

At the end of the night we were in Logan's room and Sophia said this was my best birthday ever but wow my room is a mess.  After Logan had his jama's on he disappeared and we talked about all the fun stuff of the day and then David came in and said why is Logan cleaning Sophia's room?  Huh... we both went into her room and sure enough he had put all the toys away and was working on making the bed.  That little two year old heard his big sister and flew into action.  She gave him a big ole hug and said wow Mom this is the best birthday ever and Logan you can pick both the books tonight for momma to read.
Ahh all the crazy does lead to bliss doesn't it!

Of course Mimi made the costumes and they are amazing!!!
Check out the matching bags!! AWESOMNESS ALL AROUND!

Pit stop to pet the kitty.

The candy aww the candy!  This little bugger was up until 2:30 am uurgh what a night thank goodness it's only once a year.

NaNoWriMo News...  My goals are small this year but still worthy!  I will write 2 children's books and write in my bag daily.  More to come on how I wrestled the rest of the candy from their grubby little hands!
