Ashby is 5!!

Today was Ashby's birthday and I thought we had a pretty fun day! She slept in (yea more for me I guess). Then we had under the bowls (a variation of the Worth family tradition, under the plates) and opened a few presents. She wore new clothes to school today and took some cookies with her. Then we came home and read some books until it was time to meet Roger at Chili's for her birthday dinner. After that we came home to cake and her biggest gift... a new bike! Unfortunately the screen on our digital camera isn't working so I couldn't see how blurry the picture was, but I'll post it anyway. I think she was happy with her day. Of course she made the comment that she didn't get all those things she wanted that she saw on TV.... we are terrible parents huh! Lucky for us, we get a much needed break from the TV, more details about that to come.

I can't believe my little girl is 5. I remember thinking when she was brand new how long it would be before she would be 5. Now it's here and I can't believe it. I hardly remember my life without her. She a truly such a joy, we love her so much!

Birthday cookies for school. (they are supposed to be spiders, but I couldn't find black string licorice.)

Ashby at Chili's. She wore her hood up the whole day, it was very cute!

Ashby with her requested birthday cake. Can you tell what it's supposed to look like?

She did a great job blowing out her candles.

Blurry picture on bike. She has a purple helmet on, but it looks like a mullet, cool.

My sister-in-law Kelly, requested a picture of Avery on her bike and here it is. She hasn't really ridden her bike since she got it (Avery, not Kelly). Hopefully she will want to now that Ashby has one too.

Looks like a fabulous birthday!

Looks like a fun day for all! The cookies are cute - I think the red legs make them even more creepy crawley! 5 does seem way older than 4. Sheesh - it's all happening so fast!!!! Slow down kids!

Happy birthday to Ashby! I can not believe that she is 5. That is way too crazy. It looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I love being a part of my kids birthdays because it reminds me of that extreme excitement you have for it when you're a kid. What happens as we get older? It's just not the same.
