Back to Attack... with a BIRTHDAY!

Miss Addison's BIRTHDAY was clear back in December and I'm just getting around to blogging it. That's how I roll lately. And I'm going to make it all better in my mind by saying, "better late than never."

Addison's actual BIRTHDAY was packed full of fun and catered just to her. That morning she woke up to her presents {which wasn't a huge surprise because her main gift was her AG doll, that she already got}. She also got a "hair chair" for her doll that she is completely in love with.

After presents we had a birthday breakfast of glazed donuts- her favorite!

Then is was time to get ready and off to school we went. It also happened to be Addi's "special day" at school {which meant she got to be the 'star helper'} so I was able to go along and help celebrate. We played, sang songs, showed a poster we put together with pics of Addi and made a Christmas tree craft. It was such a fun day at preschool for both of us!
And I have to say I have LOVED the school Addi is attending! Thanks Andrea for converting me ;)

After school we were off to CARROLL'S CUP! What would a celebration be without the one-and-only?

Oh man, this part was THE WORST! Addison has wanted to get her ears' pierced for some time now. What seems like forever ago, we decided that her 5th birthday would be a great time for the big event. I told her it would hurt and had been gearing her up for it for months! She still wasn't prepared. She picked out her earrings {which unbeknown to me were the very most expensive ones, of course} then hopped into the chair and that's when the nerves kicked in. She got super scared but still wanted to go through with it. I was hoping they could do both ears at once but since there was only one girl working, she had to do one ear at a time. TORTURE! Addi started bawling after the first ear but was brave enough to do it again to the other ear. It took a few hours to recuperate. Poor thing! After all was said and done she said, "I would NEVER do that again but I'm sooooo glad I did it!"
Addi has loved having her ears pierced so it's all been worth it.

That night the Wooten's came over and we had cake and ice cream.
You think she's excited?!
See, she recovered from the earring drama.
It was the perfect day and I am the luckiest mom to have spent the ALL OF IT with the birthday girl!
