We made unicorn cookies for her to share with her preschool friends.
The morning of her birthday, she woke up and was so thrilled that it was FINALLY her birthday that she jumped out of bed at 6 am. We went to Lamar's where she picked out a big chocolate donut with Bavarian creme filling. Then a trip to the store to get birthday plates and candles for our party.
Birthday morning smiles.
Yesterday, we celebrated with Eli and the twins, then with Ted and Sue. This is her requested cake - pink with rainbows, glitter and a unicorn. (Oh, and the candles she picked out too).
Birthday card from Aunt Lynette...yes, she LOVES mermaids. She is thrilled to have some new mermaid toys to play with and clothes to wear.
She enjoyed playing with Eli and the twins.
Some party food...the aftermath.
Even mermaid hair!

I don't want to forget that she says "suss" instead of "just." She gives lots of spontaneous tight hugs and says I love You.
There is a song for everything, and probably a dance too.
She still wants a "real" dog or cat and pretends to be both of these sometimes.
She is particular about what she wants to wear down to the underwear.
She knows that Daddy and Mommy don't like certain things, or don't let her do certain things and tries to sneak and ask the other...quietly..."I have a secret Mommy,...can I have chocolate milk for breakfast?"
We picked Tyler up from school early on Friday and took off for Indiana to avoid a storm that was headed right into our travel path. It was nice to split the trip into two days. We stopped for the night in Iowa City, so we only had about 5 hours left to finish our trip Saturday morning.
We had some pretty happy travelers.
Playing games. Aubrey keeps pining to go back to Mom and Dad's to stay a "LONG time!" Please?"
