Now we are five

Big weekend at chez bug. We turned five years old. There was much discussion as to what was expected for this birthday party. The biggest conundrum: we planned the party, put it on Kate's calendar, and she then announced she wanted a surprise party. Hmmmm In the end we held the party as planned and Nona simply took her away before the party and we all yelled surprise when she showed up. That seemed to suffice. Aunt Julie came through with a cake that was above and beyond the call of duty.
Pink of course.

I was feeling absolutely terrible from a nasty cold, so I called on Grandma to provide the decorations Kate requested. With less than three hours notice she had the place looking great. Balloons, banners, streamers, the works. I let Sam's Pizza provide the main course because I wasn't up for cooking. (Okay okay, I wouldn't be up for it anyway. It's always pizza and wings for the birthday.) The kids seemed to like it.
We have three five year old's in the family, so this little table with three chairs has always worked before. This time, however, Connor who will be two in April, was highly offended that there was no chair for him. We had to go find something for him to sit on. They grow up so fast.

Kate got lots of presents, including some stylish new house boots.
Pink and fuzzy...perfect for five.

You might remember that at Christmas Kate received a rather large doll house from her Nona and Papa, the plan being that each birthday and christmas, she'll get a few more bits of furniture, and some more walls will be papered etc. For this birthday she got a spiral staircase.P1010646
Homemade by Papa. We are in awe. She also got a pie safe, a goldfish bowl, and best of all:
A dollhouse for a dollhouse. How small would the dollhouse for this dollhouse have to be?
