And Now We Are 5 . . .

That's right, she's 5! Or as Demi stated, "Momma, I'm a whole hand now!"

We had a wonderful birthday party on Saturday at a local park with children from her Pre-K class, their parents and siblings, family and friends. The theme was "Under the Sea" which is code for "Little Mermaid" -- "Momma, we can't call it a Little Mermaid Party if boys are coming!" Dee and I made the invitations using the Cricut and the Disney Dreams Come True Cartridge. Thirty-two invitations later we were finally done . . . Whew! A lot of work, but they turned out so cute!

I made a birthday banner using the Design Studio pennant I created with the George and Basic Shapes cartridge. The letters are also from George and the Little Mermaid characters are from the Disney Dreams Come True cartridge.

The kids had a blast playing at the park, playing the silly games we came up with (Fishing with Flounder, Sebastian's Shell Hunt, and Scuttle's Sandbag Toss), eating cake, and demolishing the pinata. And the adults enjoyed visiting with one another and watching the kiddos play.

Demi had so much fun and declared from her car seat on the way home, "This was the best day of my whole life!" Quite a compliment from the new five-year-old!
