Party In Da Hooowsa

partycake

EEEEKKKKKK!!! SHE. IS. SIX!! I can't believe it. My baby, my little boo, my last child is already SIX!! Okay, okay, so six isn't that old, but she was only yesterday that she was five. She is getting big too fast, I tell ya.

Yesterday she had her first big kid birthday party. As a rule, we don't do parties until kindergarten, and then, you can't invite more friends then the age you are turning. Lauren picked five friends and had a ball of a time. Waiting is so hard. Especially when the party starts at 1pm and at 1:01 no one was there yet. LOL.

I totally caved and couldn't wait to give Lauren her special Momma-made gift. It was the perfect outfit for the day!! She loves it. It is all a little too big, but that is okay, at the rate she is growing, it'll be just right in no time.

Ya know how I told you she would be so excited to have a "photo shoot"? LOL, well she has officially gotten to the age where every photo is of her smashing one cheek into one shoulder. It took tons of coaxing to get her to do something other then the cheek to shoulder thing. LOL. I have at least two dozen photos on my computer of exactly that pose.

We have a super fun day of favorites ahead of us. We are packing goodie bags for the kids at school. And out to lunch with Daddy for Chinese Chicken (her favorite is General Tso's). Oh and presents afternoon, talk about it being hard to wait. Then Daddy is going to make homemade chicken fingers for dinner. Too. Much. Fun.
