A Very Happy Birthday!

Our little princess is now 5 years old. I can't seem to figure out where the time has gone. It seems like just yesterday that I was enjoying these fall days with my tiny little baby girl! That tiny little girl is now a very busy big girl. She goes to school all day now and is in a Pre-K class. She is in her third phonics book and third reader. She loves school and has lots of friends. She is a strong independent girl who likes to think for herself and do what she wants, but she is super sweet and is always first to offer her help!

Clothing Size: 4T
Weight: 37.5 lbs
Height:(Coming Nov 8th)

Favorites: Pink ruffle skirt (if you couldn't tell), ANYTHING Princess, riding her bike, fruit and gummies, chicken with mashed potatoes and corn, gymnastics, coloring, working in her reader and phonics book, playing on the Leapster, going to the park and the mall :)

The day before her actual birthday we had her birthday party at Excalibur Gymnastics where she has been going for the last two years. Almost her whole class came to her birthday party and everyone had an amazing time. It really was one of the best kid birthday parties I have ever been to. They started out with stretches and the coach was so engaging and fun. Then they did an obstacle course that included two trampolines. They divided into two teams and raced through another obstacle course using tunnels, mats, and the pit. Then they got to play in a big inflatable castle with slides and on the playground. The fun went on past our scheduled time so we barely got to have cupcakes and we were done, but I wouldn't change a thing! Izabel got a ton of wonderful gifts, but the amount of fun that she had with the kids she has really gotten to know over the last two years was priceless.

Baby Rowan and Baby Jackson :)

Monday she got to take cupcakes to her class and wear a princess crown all day at school. I let her dress herself for her birthday! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves on that one. Then we met up with my parents and Uncle Matt for a birthday dinner at Friendly's. It's her favorite restaurant and I'm sure that has nothing to do with the ice cream that comes with every kids meal :)

I know she truly enjoyed all of the birthday activities and I am so happy that we were able to have such a memorable weekend for her. Happy Birthday to our perfect little princess!! We love you bunches!
