Another year, another birthday. How time flies... but I already knew that. All I can do is seize this moment and celebrate my daughter as best I can. Soon she will be venturing life on her own... but not so fast! I still want to hold onto her like she was the baby that I once carried in my arms - so dependent and so small. And so I do for now :)
This year I asked Audrey what she wanted to do for her birthday (and yes, my husband and I had some 'suggestions' which she gladly chose from ;) hehe). We opted to celebrate her special day with her classmates in school the day before and with her cousins today, her birthday.
As with most celebrations, we zeroed in on a theme - and Doc McStuffins was this year's winner! It was quite fun to plan and I tried to make it both creative yet uncomplicated (for me at least!). Check out our pics :)

that Dada bought for her during one of his trips!
|The sisters share sweet hugs! This always makes me smile :)|
(Check out Natalie peeking at the treats!)
|Here are the giveaway boxes for Audrey's classmates and cousins. We placed toy shaped pasta pieces |
with bolognese sauce, crazy straws, colored utensils, cookies and krispies inside!
Oh, and I made Doc McStuffins name labels for each of them! :)
|The birthday cake! :)|
|Cupcakes in our color theme!|
|Band aid cookies with a heart! These were pretty yummy!|

with rainbow sprinkles!
