Almost impossible to get the whole banner in the pic.

Chris did a great job decorating the cake.

My favorite photo from today. Once the weather warms up and the flowers start blooming I plan on taking her 4 year pics outside wearing her dress and holding her umbrella. Maybe go to Unity Village for those.

I have taken a picture like this since her second birthday.

I found a Mary Poppins Barbie on ebay.

Look how big she is. So grown up. You are not allowed to turn 5!

Besides three of my old Barbies and the clothes I made Chris and I got her a Barbie house. Kidcraft makes a few different houses. We got this one at Costco back in early December because it was one of their christmas items. A lot cheaper to buy then. The house is totally 80's! Love it!

Then we went over to our friends house and took ice cream to share with everyone. Mint chocolate chip from Baskin Robbins to be exact. Violet's favorite.

Celebrating with our friends. It was a great night until Violet decided to bust her lip and bruise her forehead because she was jumping on the couch and fell. Something she is not allowed to EVER do at home but thinks it's ok to do at other peoples houses.

Monday night everyone was grumpy and tired so we decided to stay in, watch a movie and make some jewelry.
Violet wanted to watch Princess Bride. Or as she calls it The Princess and the Pirate. The movie has one bad word in it. Chris and I always have loud coughing fits at that part. Must be something in the air ;)

Look at my beautiful necklace Aunt Karen!

What is that glow at the end of the hallway?

It's our new pink bathroom. I repainted it this weekend.
The pictures don't really do it justice. It's a clean salmony pink color. I decided to keep our old shower curtain because the pink matches one of the pink stripes. Although I did find some fun pink poodle fabric that would make an awesome shower curtain. I'd have to change my decor then.
I originally painted it a light turquoise 7 years ago. Time for a change. Violet has also been asking about wanting her room pink. I said NO. Why no? Because her room has a huge vaulted ceiling and I don't really want to have to repaint it again some day when she decides she hates pink. So I said lets paint the bathroom instead. She was excited about that. She got to paint her name on the wall before we started and then got to use the paint roller, which she complained was too heavy.

Everything else is pretty much the same. Except the hand towels. I decided to lease the turquoise tissue holder and toothbrush holder. It breaks up all that pink and doesn't look bad.

BRIGHT pink rug with matching hand towels. New towel bar.

Brand new fancy faucet. No more builder grade faucet! And now the drain actually drains!

Will be adding white crown molding next.
