carly's 5th birthday!

the cute birthday girl!

princess mask!

sassy sister!

the cake!
breakfast in bed...oops panties shot!
ready for the circus!

carly's 5th birthday was super fun...we had a princess tea party in our backyard with her friends a few day before her birthday...i made this teapot cake, from a cake i saw online and it turned out great! i did face painting for each kid, had to keep it simple and they each got a princess mask, except the few boys that were there, and we sipped tea, ate, and played games all dressed up in princess dresses.  it was something i have always wanted to do for the girls, have a tea party all dressed up with real tea cups and everything...so carly's birthday was perfect for it...and carly LOVED it!
on the day of her birthday she got breakfast in bed, german pancakes, and fruit! and in the evening went to dinner with grandma donna and grandpa dave to rose's cafe and went to see the circus...the circus turns out to be perfect for a 5 year old, she was pretty much in heaven and the cotton candy disappeared pretty quick as well.  she had an awesome birthday and i felt so special to have such an amazing girl as my daughter for 5 years now.  she really is a light in my life and i feel so lucky to have this sweet thing!
