Happy 5th Birthday, Ansley Kate!

Today this beautiful little princess turned FIVE!    

She woke up and after being sung to and given birthday hugs, she asked if she could bake in her Easy Bake Oven. She helped daddy make some french toast, (look at us mixing it up from our usual birthday pancakes!), but she still got some whipped topping with a candle on her french toast. 
We then did our usual Sunday routine of going to church then to Great-Granny Ollie's for lunch, and then we came home and the kids hung out and played with daddy while I went to finish decorating for her Pocahontas party. Isn't it nice when their birthday falls on a day that you can actually have their party on that day? She then went to her party and had a wonderful time playing, laughing, and did a whole lot of jumping on the trampoline. (I'll post some more pictures soon of her fun Pocahontas themed party). 
By the time we got home, all four kids were exhausted, but Jackson wanted her to open one last gift from him, Elsie & Vada Belle. Then they all wanted to sleep in Jackson's room (every night they are having a "sleepover" in one of the rooms) so we were in there getting them ready for bed. While we were saying what we were thankful for before our prayers, of course we were saying how much we were thankful for our birthday girl. When it was her turn and she said her usual things (mom, dad, Jackson, Elsie, Vada Belle, our home, etc), and then she said, "I'm thankful for my fun party, and that it didn't rain." Me too, sister, me too!
At five years old Anlsey still loves anything princess, pink, dancing, playing with her sisters and brother, thinking that she is Vada Belle's second mommy, anything to do with arts and crafts, dressing up, coloring, playing with her dolls and Barbies, baking in her easy bake oven, animals and bugs of all kinds, and being mommy's little helper. When she grows up she has three different things that she says she wants to be. One is a Rockette, and for a while- as in several months- we had to watch the Rockette's Christmas Spectular every single day while her and Elsie dance and sung along to every routine. I think we all have it memorized by now. When Netflix took it off for a little while, we had to order the DVD because they were so sad it was off! If it isn't a Rockette she wants to be, then another answer is "a mermaid." I asked her how I could come visit her if she is a mermaid, and she assured me that she would be like Ariel and could get legs, too, and walk on land to see us. (Let's hope she doesn't have to make any deals with Ursula the sea witch for that to happen). ;)  For the third option- a fairy, but not just any fairy- Ansley Kate wants to be the tooth fairy! What fun career choices!!

Happy Birthday to our little princess! We love you to the moon and back, and then some more!
