My Adwen turned 5 this year. I remember when she was born (yes, I am going to the birth story). I opted for a natural birth with her. It took 12 hours of natural labor for her to come out...the longest labor of my three. Yes.. natural, notice I keep saying that. It was hard! She was a difficult baby at first, didn't eat well and wasn't content. When she got a little older she wanted to be held, CONSTANTLY! Fun to look back and see some things never change. She is a child that wants lots of hugs and always fights to sit on my lap during church. She is a picky eater. She has a lot of love to give though. She constantly keeps me in check by trying to get me to smile when things are not going right. She is a great helper! We love Addie!
Birthday breakfast: doughnuts. She actually only took one bite. Picky with the sprinkles.
This is pretty much the second cake I ever attempted to decorate. The first cake was for Joelle's first birthday. It didn't come out well. For some reason I decided to try again. This fairy cake was fun to make but it did take a long time. I had some help from Mom Garner.
The decor came together really well. Mom Garner spent a lot of time helping me prepare for Addie's party. She is a wonderful Grandma!
3 fairies before the party.
All the girls came in their fairy finery. I put face paint on each of the girls. We played games and made crowns and they all received a fairy wand. I couldn't bear to cut the cake after spending the whole day putting it together. I gave them chocolate cupcakes instead. Oh, Addie didn't like her cupcake either (she picked it).
