I LOVE my girls, but they really love each other.  Now don't get me wrong there is always a fight once a day over sharing princesses, or who gets to be the most beautiful something or other.  But they sure do have a good time, and I love watching and hearing them play together!

They may love each other, but the other person they really love is Little Man.  There is always room for him!

I can not believe that Sofia started Kindergarten today!  Wasn't it yesterday that Chad and I were speeding down Viers Mill Road at 90 miles an hour to bring this little girl into this world?  She LOVED every minute, and was soooooooo incredibly excited about it all.  She has several friends in her class, which I think will make the school year fun.  
Next you know we will be driving her to college, and going to her wedding, and....tear, tear, sob, sob;)

The actual birthday

For Sofia's actual birthday we took her to the beach, had breakfast and then went to Sprinkles Cupcakes for her birthday cupcake.  The beach was a blast, and breakfast was as always great.  But the big deal was going to Sprinkles!  Sofia has become OBSESSED with a show called Cupcake Wars.  She thinks that Candace Nelson hung the moon!  We have watched every episode 20 times and she can tell you every ingredient known to man.  We play cupcake Wars, we talk about Cupcake Wars, I swear the girl eats, breathes, and lives baking!  She wrote a letter to her beloved Candace Nelson and we went and had cupcakes in Newport.  She loved it!

Her letter to Candace Nelson.  She is sitting at the table judging Cupcake Wars.

Here she is in front of Sprinkles Bakery, she is slightly annoyed with me because she is DIEING to go in!

Here she is with her new friend Nicole.  She loved her!

Sofia's 5!!!!! Can you believe it!?!?

We have been celebrating Sofia turning 5 for about a month now!  We did so much, that I am just now downloading pictures of all of the fun, I will do a couple of posts, so you don't have to feel like you just read a novel about Sofia's birthday;)

For her birthday party we did a Tinkerbell theme.  I went WAY over board as I always do and it was SUPER fun.  We got wings, necklaces and tiara's for the girls.  For the boys we got pirate hats, tattoos and patches.  Emily did her own thing and was Alice for the birthday party...she is too funny!  My parents came in for the big party too (thank heavens...could not have done this without them:)

We also played a game where the parents were thistles (you have to see the movie) and they chased the kids, and they froze, then the fairies or kids chased the thistles and froze them.  It was really fun!  We did this party at a park, and I will forever do a party at the park from now on!  It was the easiest and most fun party we have had yet!
