William Turned 5!

 a little late --- well, an entire month late! But I did want to say William turned 5 and as always our family and friends helped bring in a wonderful new age! It's a real reality shake-up to think that an entire 5 years has gone by!! I can picture Brian and I coming home from the hospital and I couldn't get over how big Emily seemed! Introducing her to her new little brother ---- and then pulling myself together to take care of two very small children! It makes their independence today all the sweeter! Happy (belated) Birthday William! And thanks to all who made it so special!

The first of many Happy Birthdays sung. As always Dinosaurs remained a constant theme. I think I'm an expert in Dinosaur and Fairy parties

I love tall candles! I think they look so fun on a cake!

Brian stayed up late for two nights casting Dino molds which he then buried in the make shift sand boxes (in the lower right hand corner --- the kids dug and brushed them out and then put them together. I have to say it was a brilliant idea --- but it took some dedication!
