Who knew?

Who knew, that orange soda given to a sugar-filled-drink deprived child would result in "thank you's" for an entire day?

Who knew, that a last minute run to the store where $20 was spent on balloons would create such joy, even 1.5 weeks later?

Who knew, that breaking the no "character shirt" rule would eliminate the fight to get out of pajamas in the morning?

Who knew, that the party theme I thought was the least exciting, turned out to be celebrated not once, but twice and went on to be the one someone has talked about the most?

Who knew, that my baby being 5 would be so incredible?

  5. Abby just turned 5, too. It's a fun and exciting age. I don't know if it's different for boys than it is for girls, but we could never have a "no character shirts" rule. My girls looove princesses and we have them everywhere....shirts, shoes, jeans, jackets, you name it.

  7. What great photos, I hope 5 takes a long time to get around for us. I can't imagine having a kindergartner.

  10. I can't believe those balloons still have air in them??! I know the mylar ones last forever but the regular ones usually die so fast. You must have magic helium!!
