Addison is how old?!?!

Addy Birthday
FIVE!!! That's right ladies and gents, the age of my oldest is ALL of the fingers on ONE WHOLE HAND!!! I can't believe it. And much her chagrin (and mine), she missed the Utah kindergarten cutoff date this year by six days. SIX DAYS! And let me tell you, they don't make ANY exceptions. Believe me, I called just about every one humanly imaginable...school district, state school board, elected officials, etc. Such a bummer. Oh well, that just means my baby will get to be home with me for another year. YAY! :)

I made cupcakes for Addison's preschool class. The birthday girl wanted lady buys, so lady bugs she got.

She told me later she thought the eyes were creepy. Well I'm sorry, the twins only sleep for so long, and I couldn't figure out how to make little dots with the frosting without making those little curly things. Yeah, they are a little creepy, but they still taste good. :)

She also enjoyed opening presents.

This year dad won the prize for messiest we're-going-to-throw-these-away-as-soon-as-we-get-the-chance present with his washable colored bubbles...it turns out they're not so washable. But the girls loved them.

I just wish I had gotten pictures of Hannah's feet. Unbelievable. Fortunately it didn't come off on the carpet when she came inside.

So, I've seen other people do little birthday questionnaires on their blogs for their kids and I thought it would be fun to start doing one for each of the kids too, so here goes:

I love that first pic of Addison and the last one of Hannah. You captured their eyes PERFECTLY.
