Birthday Girl

We celebrated Maya's 5th birthday on Saturday.


The problem is that I didn't think to get the invites out until last Monday. ...which meant that I needed to come up with a snazzy little invite. These little numbers took an embarrassing amount of time, effort, and money to create.


But on Saturday, it was all worth it!

Maya and Will definitely had the competitive edge in terms of the donut-on-a-string contest. Maya's been sucking down donuts on a string since she was two. In fact, I'm pretty sure she thinks this is the "normal" way to eat them.



Then there was capture the flag - we had to run off some of that powered sugar!



And finally, she opened up her gifts. She opened this card from a certain Grandma and exclaimed, "I got a dollar!"

Turning five is sweet.

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
