For my birthday…. God sent SNOW!!! I woke up on the morning of my birthday… only to find a snowy winter wonderland out side of our window. Living smack in the middle of winter-free west texas, we didn’t really have proper “snow attire”…. but we managed to layer enough & make it work :o) Daddy even pulled out all of the stops & used an old cardboard box & some rope to create a makeshift sled to pull us around on… you’ll see that Ardynn was not a big fan of the snow or the sled once again this year… silly girl! What a treat it was for us desert chicks!
Saturday, January 12
Well, it doesn’t seem crazy to me… I’ve been waiting for a whole long year to be five years old! … but from the way people are acting amazed around here, I suppose it’s some big feat or something. Mommy simply “cannot believe it”. Anyhoo… either way… it’s true! … on January 4th, 2013 – this girl turned 5 years old. On that day - - I literally asked mom “when in the world will my friends be here????” about 72 times. Never again will I suggest a party that starts at 5pm… it was all my little heart could bear to wait ALL DAY for the party to start!
Per my specific request, we celebrated with a GIRLS ONLY pajama party… party colors were to be only my favorites: PURPLE (but of course), pink, and a little bit of blue, too. We invited my closest bestie girlfriends… ate pizza ‘n’ cupcakes (strawberry ones of course)… had popcorn ‘n’ pink lemonade while watching a couple of must-see Strawberry Shortcake episodes… and got our manicures freshened up! It was the perfect evening for a PJ party… it snowed on my birthday for the first time since last year!! yippie!
All in all, it was an over-the-top girlie soiree. I made it clear that only a few boy were to be invited (Daddy, DooDah, Popi, Uncle BoBo, “Daddy Joe”, & sweet little Trible)…. although the rule: they HAD TO WEAR pajamas. I was darn serious about this condition. So much so, that at Christmas, I gifted daddy, DooDah, & Popi with pjs to wear to my party…. grand idea, eh? It worked… they all sported their pajamas… see if you can tell who got each pair: Superman, Snoopy, & Dr. Seuss: One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish… I picked the characters out myself!!
We all had a ball being super girlie goofballs… yea for being FIVE :o)
