Gia is Turning 5!

My 'baby' is almost 5 years old. I'm not sure how the heck that happened but man that was fast! I swear I just brought her home from the hospital.

Leading up to the big day we were discussing her options for a birthday party. I actually encouraged her to invite some of her friends to one of my least favorite places (McD's) and have the party there. We're up to our eye balls in boxes here at the house and as most of you know, moving is an arduous task. It sucks all the energy from your body, and your house looks like a disaster area. My preference would NOT be to have a house full of preschoolers 2 weeks before our big move. However, the kiddo insisted that we have a Princess party at the house, and since she is the #1 Princess, I let her have her own way!

There was a total of 6 girls so it wasn't all that bad. I had it after lunch so I wouldn't have the added task of feeding everyone an actual meal. Keep it simple is my new motto.

Here are a few pictures from the party day...

Hunting for Eggs

All the Lovely Ladies
Since her birthday was so close to Easter this year, we decided to have an egg hunt. We've done this before at her parties and it's always a big hit. This year was no exception.

It was a lovely afternoon and Gia fully enjoyed being the center of attention.

Her actual birthday is later this week when she will once again be showered with attention. She has chosen bowling and lunch (at that least favorite place!) for her special day.
I'll be sure to write up a part 2 to the birthday celebration post.
Until then...
