My baby girl is five!


It is Lindsay's birthday and I can't believe that somehow I have created a tradition where my kids get not one, not two but THREE birthday cakes?! There are the cupcakes for school, the family cake and then the birthday party cake. Are we the only family that has fallen into the 3X sugar and lard trap? Even I, the Birthday Piglet Extraordinaire, think it is a bit excessive. But I'm not gonna be the Birthday Scrooge so three cakes it will be.

Our Lindsay is a delightful handful! She is exuberant, but shy.
She loves to dress up ...

... and to swing.

And we have one big thing in common - we love this man a lot!

Happy Birthday my Sweet Girl!

Happy Birthday Lindsay!

You're in good company - it's my Dad's birthday as well.

Enjoy ALL three cakes - what a great Mama you have.

Hope your daughter has a fantabulous birthday.

We do the multi celebration here too. Cupcakes or a cookie cake for school. Something on her actual birthday. And then something else when we have a party. Maybe one day we'll have the party on her actual birthday and eliminate one cake. But probably not!

Five is a great age. Mine is turning 8 at the end of the month. We have the birthday treats at school, the firends party cake, the family party cake and a dinner out on her actual day. Yikes.

Hapy Birthday Lindsay!

LOL, Laurel. You and I were posting/commenting on my blog at the same time. You'll have to go read my latest post. I think you'll crack up.

Umm. Okay, now I'm embarassed. Ignore that last comment (other than the happy birthday wishes...). It was a different Laurel. Ack! :)
