5th birthday

Sharing is caring!

My girl turned 5 this month πŸ™‚ what an amazing journey it has been.
The 1st year 


Ages 1-2
Ages 2-3




I won’t be sharing her pics from the last 2 years for obvious reasons..

What has changed? Well for starters.. we get 5 kisses at any time – one on the right cheek ,one on the forehead, one on the left cheek, one on the chin & one on the Nose πŸ™‚ . She takes 5 sips of water at a time, eats 5 biscuits for Tea and is happy when she sees any thing that is a set of 5 – Hi-5 , 5 fingers on my hand, Mumma you pick me up at 5Pm because I’m 5!! Star is her fav shape because, – Yes its got 5 corners..

If we need her to hurry up , we count down from 5.. Its Crazy, yet so much Fun! πŸ™‚

For her 5th Birthday, We had a Flowery Theme – Here are the pics from the party..

 We made about 26  Tissue paper Flowers

 The kids painted a few flower coloring pages, made some icecream stick flowers with cutouts in their kits, and each kid made a Giant Paper Flower like the one above. I had done all the folding and cutting earlier, the kids just opened up each petal to reveal the magic – as my daughter put it πŸ˜€

    @Knottygal: Aww.. cmon.. The only reason we celebrate her birthday is so that we get to meet all friends n relatives. Hubby has a very big family and most stay in Bangalore. We hardly meet the year around and birthdays just give us an excuse to meet them all under one roof. and we celebrate it in a big way every odd year.
