Shelby is 5!

I knew this day would eventually come...the day my last "baby", Shelby would turn 5! It came last Friday, October 10th. I woke up feeling nostalgic & did all day long. S was so excited to turn 5, as it is such a turning point in a little girls life in my opinion! This starts the next little phase for her, losing teeth, attending "big girl" school in Kindergarten, learning to ride her bike w/o training wheels & so many other things!
She is such a petite little thing, that I have such a hard time thinking of her as a big grown-up girl, lol! Alas, she is no longer a toddler in any sense of the word! I stuffed my nostalgia & my sadness that I will never have a toddler running around the house again & we all celebrated & we celebrated BIG!!
She had a fun cupcake get together at preschool on her "real" Birthday, then the next day, Saturday was her party at "Pump It Up"!
What is Pump It Up you ask?? It is a Birthday party hosting facility filled to the brim with inflatables! You know, those fun bounce houses & inflatable slides & obstacle courses! She had a BLAST with her friends & totally enjoyed sitting in the Birthday Princess chair to open her gifts...yup, the chair was also inflatable, LOL! Here are a few (well, a ton, lol!)pics of my sweet, angel who is now 5 (sniff, sniff!). We love you Shelby!
Oh, notice her darling "5" applique tee & fun polka dot twirl skirt by Jenn of Takeabow! Thanks Jenn, Shelby loved twirling on her Birthday!











Shelby's Birthday would NOT have been complete without a pink & purple puppy cake!

Happy Birthday Swwet Shelby! It looks like she had a wonderful time. Thanks so much for your sweet and thoughtful gift. It arrived earlier this week and the kids just HAD to have a popsicle right then! Jack thought they were cool swords too. Boys...sigh...

Happy Birthday to your sweet girl! My youngest is rapidly approaching that birthday also and it makes me SO sad! How much longer will she want to wear customs and bows? LOL I love following your auctions btw ;)
