Oppy Bird-day Do You!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, my sweet daughter!

We have been talking about this for weeks - ever since Sunshine's birthday.

Cupcake is 5 years old today!!!!

She came running into my room this morning saying, "Happy Birthday, NOW!"

We plan on having a very small party tonight - Grandpa, Grandma and one friend. Cupcake loves all things princess, so we'll be having a princess party. It'll be a very low-key affair. We're trying hard not to overwhelm her. (Plus, I'm still recovering from the flu.)

Sugar's good friend gave Cupcake a princess tent yesterday. It's pretty cool, huh!
And it will come in handy for tonight's theme.

Cupcake shares a birthday with two very special children. While I'm having fun planning, preparing, and celebrating Cupcake's birthday, my heart aches for my friend, Manyblessings. Her Soccerboy and Princess are still stuck in Guatemala. They were both born on August 13th (different years) and they are 11 and 9 today. They were 7 and 5 when they started the adoption. I'm so thankful to finally be able to celebrate Cupcake's birthday at home, but I wish those two were safe in the arms of my friend. Praying for you, D.

And finally, here are some fun pictures from this past week....

Blessings to you,
