Parker's Birthday Day

This past Tuesday- Parker turned 5 years old!  I won't go on and on about how I can't believe she's 5 because I can't. And I say it all the time.

But I did go back and read her birth story and I will say that it doesn't seem like it was FIVE years ago!

We had a pretty low key day and ended with a family party.  We left our gifts to her out on the kitchen table for her to find when she woke up.  She was a little bit excited about her big day.  :)  She ran out of her room...eyes squinty from the bright light coming in from the windows and said through a smile, 'It's my birthday!"



Geoff is explaining to her that she will need to share with Grace.


And Grace is telling her which one is hers.  ;)





We enjoyed pancakes, bacon, and strawberries for breakfast...


I was trying to finish up some things last minute...So Geoff sat down with her to do some school work.


Grace was entertained for about 5 minutes with these blocks.  :)


I must say, though, I was impressed with her stacking skills...


Parker wanted a Barbie party...but I had already decided we were going to do a gymnastics party for her friends...it was going to be the 'no hassle...no running around my house trying to clean for a party' party....but the kids would love it and have fun...and it was/is a win-win.

But to give her a 'Barbie' party....I just through in a few Barbie things....

My mom made these adorable shirts and I made the skirts to match....


It's hard to get a good one of all 3, but these girls were so excited and bouncing off the walls!








 **The banner and these water bottle printables were purchased here.


We ordered pizza....


Papaw and Gran


Grandad and Mimi


Poppa and Gramma





A special treat!  My granny and 2 of her sisters...Joann and Pauline...



This gal got way too much.  And was a little shy to say thank you...


She just needed a little 'talk'...and all was ok.  :)





I always set forth to take pics of everyone and everything and always fail miserably!  I did NOT get a picture of Aunt Aubrey and her fiancé Greg.....and none of Kristin and Uncle Phil...AND none of our family of four!  Arghh!
