Saturday was my daughter E’s fifth birthday party. I can hardly believe I’ve been a mom for FIVE years, more if you count the 9 months of “morning” sickness that preceded her arrival.

We did a Frozen themed birthday party for her and it was so much fun. I love having people over and I love working with a theme, especially one that involves hanging snowflakes all over my house. I’ll share more about the party later, but I have to tell you about our visit from Elsa! We hired a company to send out a Princess Elsa and the kids loved it! She sang for them, played a game, read them a book, made balloon animals, and did face painting. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.

I had so much fun watching E soak in the day, surrounded by friends, family, and great food. Hearing her say, “This is the best birthday EVER!” made all the time and energy I spent planning the party all worth it. A hundred times over.

She’s such a sweetie. She’s smart, sassy, and has the biggest heart. The way she cares for others inspires me to be a better person. I’m so blessed to be her momma.

Plus, she makes a super cute smoothie model, am I right? As does her brother with his irresistible dark brown eyes and deep dimples.

They both devoured these smoothies and didn’t even have any idea that they contained cottage cheese. They were enamored by a couple of their favorite fruits paired with sweet, sweet honey. Who wouldn’t love that?
