A Party For a Princess

5 is kind of a big deal.  Every birthday is so important and special, but 5 has been a tear jerker for mama.  I don't know if it's because she starts school this year, or because I really just can't get over the fact that I have a 5 year old kid...not a baby, not a toddler...a kid.  Or if it's because these 5 years have just went by way too fast and it freaks me out that in 5 more years she will be 10 and then 5 more after that she will be 15.  Yikes.  Total mom sob-fest.  It's fine, don't worry about me...we had really good cake and that helped me cope with the fact that I have a 5 going on 15 year old.

I threw the party together in about a week and used way too many balloons and rolls of crepe paper.  We had a photo booth, a dress up vanity, magic balloon pop, all of the girls dressed as princesses, and of course we had a piƱata.  We splurged on the cake....  Because the cake is where it's at.  No one remembers if your magic balloon pop game sucked if the cake was good.  Can't win 'em all.  But we did win the heart of our very own princess.  She loved every minute of her birthday and we have loved every minute of being her parents.  What a fun, wild, sweet, beautiful, sassy, smart & loving little girl we were blessed with.  We love you to the moon and back Kollyns River.

"Time to turn me into a princess, Mama!"
