Caroline’s Birthday Party

Caroline had her party at Girly Girl this year!    I had kept it a surprise from her.  She was so excited when she walked in…she is my ultimate “girly-girl”!  Anything pretty…pink…dress up…hair…nails…makeup…is right up her alley!

We were so glad that Nanna and MamMa could come spend this special day with us!


They started out by letting the girls go into the dressing room and pick out a dress…from hundreds of dresses…to wear for the party.  This is what Caroline and Leighton picked out…

After they got all fancied up, they put on some music and let the girls dance.  Caroline had a ball dancing…and liked the Cha-Cha Slide the best:). 

I love the following pictures of Caroline dancing with her sweet friend Elizabeth…they share the same birthday!

After they all got their groove on, they got to LIMBO!

  Sweet Caroline turned 5 years old last week!  I just have to mention how PRECIOUS Caroline is.  She has more patience than any other child I know.  She is ALWAYS sweet and kind!  She will do ANYTHING for Carter and Leighton…she loves them both dearly!  She loves to SERVE others.  Whatever ways she can find to “help” mommy and daddy or Carter and Leighton she willingly does so.  It is pretty remarkable.  She is POSITIVE at all times…if her favorite toy breaks or her favorite dress gets torn, she just simply smiles and says, “It’s OK Mom, I have something else to play with or wear!”  She is a Mother Hen to Leighton.  She gets so much JOY out of dressing her, feeding her, bathing her, potty training her.  Leighton is one lucky little girl to have Caroline as her big sister!   Ben always mentions that, “Whoever gets to marry Caroline will be so lucky!”   I CANNOT wait to see what God has in store for our “little ray of sunshine”.  We are so blessed!

On her birthday we woke her up with donuts in bed.  This girl LOVES donuts…so she was super excited!

After donuts we headed into the kitchen to open some presents.

Caroline went to preschool for the day…we took cookies up to her class to celebrate!

After school we took her to build-a-bear.  She had been asking to do this for at least 6 months:).  She walked right in and picked out the bear she had been wanting.

 She stuffed her, gave her a heart, washed her, and LOVED picking out her clothes!

After she was finished we went to the food court at the mall to eat dinner and ride the carousel.  We were so glad that MiMi and Grandad got to come celebrate with us!

We had so much fun celebrating sweet Caroline!

Sweet Caroline was excited for school today! She is in the giraffe class with some of her good friends.  I took these pictures before school…and as I was looking back through them I was caught off guard by how OLD she looks!  In my mind she should be about three years old…she will turn 5 next week!  Oh, if I could only stop time!
