A Butterfly Birthday




Katheryn turned 5 this year.
And that is a pretty big deal!

A couple of months ago the planning started, and Katheryn said she wanted to have a butterfly/fairy party


We have started a tradition of dressing up for birthday parties (of course what is more fun than that?!)
And Katheryn really enjoyed her tea party birthday last year.


She had a couple of wishes for her birthday. She wanted a pinata (done) and a bouncy castle (unfortunately I had to nix that idea)


 The pinata was definitely a hit (not literally).
I had no idea that they made ribbon pinatas and was worried about giving a bunch of kids a big stick. Luckily I have a friend who knows about these things and each kid got a ribbon to pull.


 And then the collecting began.
The older kids (who cared the most about what was there) got the most.


But everyone left with a loot-box of toys


After a candy-filled Easter last week, there was only the minimal amount of candy. Most of it was little toys and stickers, glow sticks, dinos, princesses ect.


 I got a nice mom and Katheryn shot! With both of us looking and smiling.


Katheryn was full of smiles all day.
And had a lot of fun with everyone who came.


Everything she got she was thankful for, she opened and looked at all of the cards. Every times she opened something she said "Oh wow"


She loved the butterfly cake, and blowing out her candles. For the first time she really enjoyed a house full of people singing happy birthday to her!


And of course the house full of butterflies, fairies or other bug-creatures.



The fun-filled day ended with the kids asking to go to bed, but first we had a get a quick sibling picture (complete with rackets that they did not hit each other with - this time)


Happy Birthday baby girl! 5 years is a such a great milestone!
So much has changed in the last 5 years and you have brought such joy to all of our lives. Our lives have completely changed and life is so much better than we ever could have imagined it to be.
