Rachel is officially 5 years old! February is definitly busy for us with the girls having birthdays. I feel like I can finally catch a break now from the madness! We had Rachel's family party on her actual birthday- the 23rd. We were just going to do cake and ice cream, but my husband had a chili craving, so he made a big yummy pot of it, and some delicious cornbread to go with it. I just concentrated on the cake making, and I was pretty proud of what we ended up with! Rachel asked for a princess cake, and I thought it would be fun to make her one of those barbie ones, where the dress is the cake.
I found these little half barbies at Michael's for 3 bucks, but they come naked... I went through our barbie stash trying to find a cute top to put on her, but nothing seemed to work, sooooo I glittered her lol.
Rachel enjoyed opening her presents. We got her a Figet toy (she asked for a robot and it was the closest thing I could find), she's obsessed with it though, and the toy cracks us all up with its dancing. She had a lot of fun and has enjoyed playing with her presents, and wearing her new clothes.
I am so proud of the little lady she is becoming. She's full of spunk and personality, and makes me so proud every day!
