Today our precious little 3 lb baby girl turned 5 years old.  She’s not too old for pink, as we decorated the house in two-tone streamers.  She wanted to wear this summer dress (and hat!) and I let her until we went out into the cool fall air.  It was a pretty normal day at home, except for the streamers, a nice Honey Baked Chicken dinner with sparkling ‘wine’, and then we had Awana tonight. 

We managed to squeeze in a small gift (yes, another stuffed animal, a pig if you can’t tell from the picture!  We went to a toy store and she picked it up and would not put it down, we bought it secretly) and we also gave her a first allowance tonight.  More partying will happen Saturday with the local Grandma and Grandpa.
