Cupcake-palooza - part 3 of 5

Look who went and turned 5 years old on me when I wasn't looking!
OK, I actually was looking, but sometimes it's just so hard to believe me eyes.

By request she got chocolate cupcake, with a chocolate filling, chocolate fudge icing and chocolate sprinkles.  
Not being a chocolate gal myself (insert gasp from audience here) I don't get how some females are evidently born with this chocolate gene.  But I am more than happy to oblige her!

Each of our children get to pick out their own birthday dinner.
Tess requested an got
1) pizza with pineapple, pepperoni and cheese
2) celery sticks (one of her favorite foods which hopefully balances out the chocolate thing)
3) chocolate chips
4) and the aforementioned death-by-chocolate cupcakes.  
At 5 years old we find her a bit of a dichotomy.
She's fierce and yet quite fragile in many ways.
She's brave  and will face the biggest and highest, the hottest and loudest... but scared of the little things.
She's gorgeous and so disinterested in anything girly.  
She's petite with the character of a giant.
She's always on all the time, until she crashes asleep so very hard.  
She's full of smiles and joy and laughter... 
but can hold a grudge and throws the best most amazing longest temper tantrums I've ever seen.  
If someone figures out where they sell that magic pill that stops little ones from growing up is, could you let me know please?  
I love her so much just the way she is!


  1. These are great shots and it looked like she scored with the presents. I loved the cupcakes... one of my secret vices :)

    Enjoy every moment because they really grow up fast.

    I love the photo where she is standing and has toys in her hands, but she also has a toy under her foot! :)) Soooo cute.
