Gabby has literally had 5 birthday celebrations to turn the oh so desired 5. I will discuss them out of order so we can begin with the actual day, March 17th. She has wanted to be 5 years old since she was two. She has always thought that is the age you become a "big girl" which she has desired so very much. She was ecstatic on this day! Here is a glimpse into her birthday celebration.
Grandma and Papa started the day off by coming over super early in the morning to set up the birthday festivities. They brought Gabby a sprinkle doughnut and we celebrated her birth by singing "Happy Birthday" and having her blow out a candle.
|Gabby thanking Grandma for the funnest gift ever!|
|After school we exchanged Aunt Sharon's family's' gift and getting THREE toys with the money. She played with her new toys all day long.|
|Immediately after dinner with Grandma and Papa and Mommy and Daddy Gabby opened her last gift for the day and immediately tried it on. She required that we go outside and have a "photo shoot".|
|Gabby drew water on the sidewalk and pretended to swim in it|
|Her birthday cake|
|After taking Gabby to the park with Abby we decided to wind the day down by singing "Happy Birthday" once again and having some puppy cake.|
Happy Birthday Gabby. Mommy and Daddy cherish every day we spend with you. You are so sweet, loving, fun, and funny. You complete our world! I know you will do great things in life. We love you!
