Squeaky's fifth birthday was on Saturday. I can't seem to get my brain around the fact that I have a five year old now. Five years is a long time. I'm not saying that as a bad thing; in fact, it has been rather enjoyable getting to know this little family member.
Check out this post to see Squeak on her third birthday! Wow. You will also get to see a much younger Button (14 months) and a week old Winnie. So cute.
We had a little princess party for Squeak yesterday. She and Button dressed up in their best Sunday dresses. We had two friends from here at NTMC and were so excited to have two little cousins join us as well. Bruce and Patti were able to come up to see us this past weekend, and they got the grand tour of everything including Jungle Camp.
The girls did a craft, played "hot slipper" for prizes and had a tea party. I tried my hand at making cake balls. They were hideous on the waxed paper and I felt so disappointed that I hadn't made the dolly cake that Squeak had asked for. But I discovered once again the magic of a glass plate- it turned ploppy, candy coated balls of cake into a delicacy fit for a princess party. :) I think next time I will try to borrow a double boiler from somebody instead of microwaving the candy wafers. I have to say that they were delicious!
