Happy Birthday to our darling girl, Miss E., who turns five today. This photo was taken as we were heading out the door, with cupcakes and fruit juice in tow, for her celebration at preschool.
One of the highlights of the morning was Miss E. hearing her name and favorite song on "Kids Place Live," the Sirius/XM radio station we listen to each day. I e-mailed a request a few days ago, asking them to play "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music (she LOVES Julie Andrews as Maria), between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m. Sure enough, Kenny the morning host announced her name, our hometown and that she was turning five today. When the song came on, we were sitting in line at the Starbuck's drive thru and Miss E. was grinning ear to ear.
So, tonight we dine like kings at Red Robin, Miss E.'s favorite restaurant and then we'll head back to our house for cake and presents with the family. Hopefully there's not too much dust in the house, after the drywall application for the last two days. Our new hardwood floors go in today as well, so I'm really excited to see how they look. It's amazing to come home each evening and see the progress.
I can't believe my eldest child is five - where does the time go?? I love you, sweet girl. Can't wait for the evening's festivities!
