And Sarah Turns Five....

 Five. My sweet and spicy little girl turned 5 on Monday. I'd like to tell you it was a perfect day, but it wasn't. The little two don't nap anymore, and they stay up later than the big ones used to, so after lunch there was quite a bit of attitude from the birthday girl. All that passed by dinner though, and we had a nice little celebration for her that evening.
Dinner and cake was Sarah's pick, broccoli soup and Red Velvet cake - YUM :)
It took Sarah about 15 attempts to finally get all her candles blown out, it was the cutest thing, she just kept puffing at them from 2 feet away - I'm surprised she managed to get them all out!
Sarah didn't want the chopped pecans on her cake, so I added mini chocolate chips and sprinkles. It was a hit.

We had some presents after dinner...
...and Sarah was VERY excited to receive her Angry Bird. She's named him Eggbert :)
I can't believe my little girly is 5 years old, and that kindergarten starts next year. We're always told to enjoy them while they're little because it goes so fast, and truer words have never been said - the day to days seem so long on one hand, and yet the weeks fly by - it will be next year before I can blink, and I'll miss hearing Sarah sing and play with Jason during the day while she's at school. I really wish I could put her in my pocket and keep her just as she is - 5 is pretty great :)

  4. She is just so cute!
    It looks like she had a good day, momma.
    And one of the most poignant and sweet quotes I ever saw was: The days, they drag. But they years, they fly.
