Turning 5 Calls For 2 Birthday Parties!

Last Sunday, Maggie had a Popsicle Pool party to celebrate turning the big 5!  It was a perfect day, the sun was hot & she had an amazing day playing with family & friends.

Her party theme was "Popsicles" so I made her a Popsicle cake... This kinda looks like a Popsicle, right?  ;-)

Someone was REALLY excited to eat some cake!

For the party favors, I made Popsicle rice krispie treats with white chocolate & sprinkles on the top.

I also made a popsicle banner from scrapbook paper.  Just cut 1 to be the size/shape I wanted, used it as a template for the rest, cut them all out, hot glued a popsicle stick to the back & connected with string. :-)  Not many people saw it since the majority of the party was spent outside, but we did do presents inside.

On Maggie's actual birthday, we went down to the American Girl Bistro for lunch in Memorial City Mall.  I had never been to an American Girl store, much less set foot in one of their restaurants.  It was a really sweet to see the kids so excited about getting their babies on their highchairs, feeding them, etc.

Daddy met us on his lunch break & helped Maggie get her baby all set up in the highchair.  Unfortunately, he couldn't stay to eat his meal because he had to get back to the office, so he took it to go.

OK, this was the funniest thing ever!  If you come without a doll, you can borrow one from the Bistro.  It could not have been more perfect that the only boy doll they had for Christopher to borrow looked exactly like him!!!

All the kids ordered a "decorate your own cupcake for you & your doll" dessert.  Needless to say, lots of frosting & sprinkles were eaten & not so much of the cake!

After we were done eating, we shopped a bit in the store & Maggie got her doll's ears pierced since she's gonna get her own ears pierced soon.

Maggie had a great birthday & I still can't believe my baby's 5...but I guess I better get used to it!!!
