La turned 5 today. Here are the highlights:
1. Three cakes. Hannah Montana, Scooby (both from the Publix bakery), and these cupcakes (from a mix. French Vanilla, with Chocolate Fudge icing, sprinkles and Barbie sugar decorations. Highbrow. But delicious.). La helped but was "secretly" all about licking beaters, spatulas, forks, the bowl, etc.
2. A friend party at Monkey Joe's on Sunday and today a school party (goody bags for both parties) and presents at home.
3. Picking McDonalds for her birthday dinner. (As a comparison, the monkey usually picks sushi.)
4. Opening family gifts before breakfast. She got good loot - princess pajamas from one of my aunts (the fit great and she's looking forward to wearing them to a school event), handmade tic tac toe, an apron, and nurse hat from another aunt of mine (she and DH played a game of tic tac toe before school - it'll be great to bring to restaurants), roller skates and a hotwheels track with a loop-de-loop from us.
Made it through this one. Two more birthdays in the next two weeks.
