We decided to throw birthday parties every other year for our kids instead of every year, and since we threw Adi a mermaid birthday party last year, we spent it with family this year. We told Adi it was her day, so she gets to call the shots the whole day, which she was very excited about.
she wanted pancakes for breakfast
she took oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to school to share with her classmates
both of the girls got Brave dresses & we watched Brave
we told Adi she could go where ever she wanted for dinner and she chose Burgers Supreme. It was a proud moment right there. We've taught her the right ways. Grandma and grandpa joined us for dinner also.
I told Jay I didn't want to give her too many presents because I don't want her to grow up spoiled, but Jay spoiled her way too much and got her way too many gifts(she got 7 big gifts! what 5 year old girl needs 7 big gifts?) I told him he can spoil me since I'm an adult, but we can't spoil the girls too much from now on, haha.
we went ice skating
and sang her a birthday song and let her blow out the candles many times.
I cried the night before her birthday like I always do the day before our daughters' birthdays, but this time I cried a lot more because she was turning half a decade old. She really is a big girl now.
I am so proud of you Adi, and I will always love you forever.
