We were planning on building a big teepee outside for the kids and even tried to get my mother-in-law's horse down here, so the kids could take rides on him, but finding a trailer was a bit harder than we thought. Plus we weren't sure how the weather would hold up and didn't want Diamond to be scared.
Either way, it turned out to be a great party. Alaina was all smiles while opening up all the wonderful gifts, esp the Barbie Popstar ones. It's amazing how well our loved ones know my girls lol. Thank you everyone for wishing her a Happy Birthday, coming to her party, giving/sending gifts or had any part in making her birthday that more special. We love you!
Alaina's Pocahontas birthday table. The airbrush machine Matt got me for my b-day came in handy for Alaina's cake. I'm almost getting the hang of it lol! Sunflower cupcakes for the kiddos.

ALAINA IS 5!
On October 15th Alaina turned 5.She started her day by having heart shaped pancakes. Then to preschool she went. Alaina chose her new Barbie dress to wear, her fav cookies and juice for snack and Rainbow Mermaid story for mommy to read to her class. I love how sweet teachers are to their birthday students.
Each one has something unique they do that makes them feel special. Mrs. Z and Mrs. P have a birthday cake where the students sing a song about baking the cake. Then they count their candles.
Next names are picked out to play as their birthday candles. The birthday student uses a big match to light them and the class sings happy birthday. Lastly, a wish is made and the "candles" are blown out. It's really cute and Alaina loved it!
After her preschool party we went home and she got to open one gift (a new dress for her doll) and play with her other b-day toys until daddy got home to open the rest of her gifts from us. I asked her what she wanted us to order pizza for dinner, but she replied that, "Pizza is kinda boring. How about fish with lemons on top." LOL! So it was to Eat N' Park for dinner and my princess got her fish with lemons on top :) On our way home we stopped at Target to allow her to spend some of her birthday money and we then sang Happy Birthday. I'd have to say she had yet another wonderful birthday. Thanks again!
Make a wish
Today Alaina is 5! We were just watching videos from when you were born and it's amazing to think how far you've come! Mommy and daddy were ecstatic the day we found out that we were going to be parents. You bring so much happiness to so many people with your angelic smile and sweet personality. We love you so much. Happy 5th Birthday Princess! ♥
