Happy Birthday Faithy!

Our sweet Faith Elaina is 5 years old! She has a new love for Alice in Wonderland this year since our trip to Disneyland and some Alice books that she really loves. So her birthday request was for a tea party and Alice themed fun.  :) Here are a few pictures from her special day!


One of her favorite friends, Ms. Heather stopped by for a cup of tea in the morning because she wasn't going to be able to come for lunch later in the day. Faithy was very happy to see her!


Ms. Emily brought her a beautiful bow to wear in her hair for her tea party.  :) She LOVES it!


For her birthday lunch she requested meatballs & sweet and sour chicken because she couldn't decide...and rice and of course lots of her favorite fruits.


A table full of her favorite friends! You can't see the kids very well because they are behind the adults, and sitting closest to her and there is a table full of boys on the floor eating at the Korean table. All of the boys, except for Daddy, Mr. Ky and Mr. Nick had to sit on the floor!  She was very specific about her guest list and it included some of her favorite adult friends who were happy to attend tea for the birthday girl and even dressed up in suits and fancy dresses for the occasion!




Covering her eyes and waiting for her big present from Mommy and Daddy...


A BIG GIRL stroller for her babies that she won't outgrow anytime soon, even if she grows a foot!



She has pushed her tiny toddler size one around for the last 4 years and it was getting a little ridiculous how hunched over she was trying to push this itty bitty thing around. Since she is still so into her baby dolls we decided a new stroller that fit her would be a good gift.  


She was very happy about it and has been pushing it around the house for days now. She can't wait until the weather warms up and we can take it outside and push her babies on a walk. I was super excited to find one that said it was good for ages 5-10, and it's built like a real stroller and seems really sturdy, so it looks like it'll last awhile!


Her cake request was "Alice..with lots of flowers and some pearl candies...and a big #5 on it." :)





The time sure goes by fast...I remember so well the day she was born, it doesn't seem like it could be that long ago already! What an amazing blessing she is to us all, I can't imagine our family without or sweet Super Girl! There are too many cute ones to choose from, but here are some of my favorite Baby Faith pictures....






She loved playing dressing up from the very start and it's still her most favorite thing to do!

Owls

We did some owl pictures yesterday after looking at lots of pictures of real owls. The kids sketched them out first then did water color or crayon to color them in. I thought they turned out great! I didn't think that Faithy would actually want to do it with us, but she was very excited to do her own big owl picture. :)
