I can't believe my Baby is five! We started with the traditional donuts and chocolate milk and opening all the presents at breakfast. I love this tradition!
Her main birthday present was to make a build a bear. She chose a pink bear - shocker!
Here she is stuffing it.
Testing the stuffing.
Putting the bears heart and her heart so they will love each other.
Cleaning it in the air bath.
We realized Jackson didn't get to make a bear when he turned 5, so he made us a bargain. He will clean the entire basement to get his bear. You understand his hesitation when we proposed this to him...he finally decided it was worth it.
Jackson had a hard time getting his dressed in the jedi clothes.
The lady told Maddie she was much better at dressing her bear.
Hmmm, pink dress, pink shoes, pink undies, and a sparkly pink purse.
Maddie got to ring the birthday bell.
Jacee recently got a build a bear, so she just got some pajamas for it.
Afterwards we ate at the Old Spaghetti Factory. We got to eat in the Trolley Car.
Daddy giving her a kiss through the window.
The gave her a scoop of spumoni icecream that was mostly chocolate and a candle she got to blow out.
Maddie also got her hair cut at Cookie Cutters
They braided her hair and it was darling!
Later that night, we were having treats at the Legacy Center after Jacee's swim clinic and I noticed Maddie's tooth was gone.
She lost her first tooth on her 5th birthday! It was so exciting. The only problem is - we think she swallowed it. She didnt' seem very concerned. She just wrote a note to the tooth fairy and sure enough - $2.00 under her pillow in the morning! (Good thing she sleeps in later than the tooth fairy - almost a near miss for the first visit!)
The two new build a bears. Jackson and Maddie have decided their bears like each other.
It was a great fun-filled day. Now to get ready for the friend birthday party tomorrow ayyiyi!
