your fifth birthday landed on a saturday. which is super cool because you got to have your party on your actual birthday. no waiting. it makes things much more in the moment and exciting. no waiting for the weekend to celebrate. it was one full day of ballerina fun with your friends.
we partied it up at your auntie sara's house. more room for the five year olds to play. next year i am seriously thinking of doing an outside of the home birthday party. im just sayin because - you girls be crazy. you look so innocent. your auntie and i might have been found after the party rocking ourselves back and forth in the corner.
i tried to keep it simple this year. ballerina decorations, cupcakes, overly sugary treats (this might have instigated the crazy), our classic tradition of pigs in a blanket, games with balloons, practicing dancing skills, pin the tiara on the princess you know the usual party flare.
here are some of the pictures from your party miss sophia

|before the party|
|loved your sweet cupcake toppers - perfect for my ballerina girl|
|i lovingly and painfully (curse you hot glue gun!) made each one of your friends a special head band tiara to wear and take home|
|ahh yes there's my girl. that's nice.|
|proof i was there. you picked out which blouse i should wear - you dubbed it the "birds kissing shirt". you forgot to tell me to take off my sports watch.|
|enjoying your pigs in a blanket in not the safest or lady like manner.|
here are some instagram snap shots...
|oh yes, you girls decorated your own wands. you bejeweled the heck out of those wands. i was proud.|
|day before the party - inspector of the goody bags!|
|i channeled my inner five year old and glamorized|
|heck yes we made froot loop marshmallow treats! we also brought these into your class as a special treat. your teacher thanked me especially.|

|the bags were just too cute|
|random black and white - so artistic|
|your big present from mom and dad was a new bike! you may not look thrilled in this photo but deep down inside you were jumping for joy. your welcome for giving you a bike at the beginning of the very cold and rainy season. we are awesome like that.|
so far the three months of being an official five year old have been awesome. you are so smart and quirky. i like trying to think like you do. because it is not always the way mommy thinks. mommy's old lady brain gets stuck but your imagination is endless. never stop. love you!
