St. Gabby's Day!!!

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.


 After she finished her doughnut and got dressed for school she begged to see her birthday present.  Daddy presented her with the desired scooter, which she proceeded to ride in circles around the house.  She was so happy she got her desired gift!! It was adorable.

 Grandma and Papa pretended to leave and we "left" for school about 30 minutes early.  When Gabby walked out to see Grandma and Papa's crazy surprise she flipped out.  50 Flamingos flew in to wish Gabby a happy 5th birthday!!  She was giggling and running through all of the flamingos, even taking the time to greet them and inspect their bows and hats.




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.  



Finally, 5!


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!

Rock Star Party

Gabby's party was everything she imagined it.  The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done.  Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs.  The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned.  After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5).  A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms.  Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends.  It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby.  We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!  













Happy Birthday Grandma!!

Today is Gabby's Grandma's birthday! We were very lucky that we saw Grandma close to her birthday so we could celebrate together.  We all really enjoyed seeing Grandma and Grandpa, especially Gabby.  It took her about 5 minutes to warm up to them, but then it was hugs, kisses, and showing off for the two and a half days they stayed with us.  We celebrated Grandma's birthday with a quiet dinner and a birthday cake; although it was Grandma's birthday cake, I think Gabby thoroughly enjoyed it more than even the birthday girl! Grandma graciously gave Gabby the large white chocolate square with her birthday greeting written on it.  Gabby took large bites into it and LOVED it!




The day they were leaving Gabby and I took Grandma to Chik-Fil-A (to see Gabby in her element) for lunch.  While we all ate our chicken nuggets Gabby grabbed Mommy's drink and took big gulps, because she is too big for a juice box.  Then, once she was bored with her lunch she began waving at each…

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).



Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
