My Sweet Birthday Girl


Tuesday, my baby turned five. I can't believe it's been five years and that she will go to school soon. We had a family dinner, then she got a few presents from my parents and grandma because her party is on Saturday at the lake.

She was SO funny. At the lake, the boys are always fishing. They have custom fishing poles from my parents with their names on them. Averie just had a little baby pole with a little line and hook. She was always using the Baylor's pole (when he let her). So, my parents went and had one made for her birthday.










The look on her face was hilarious when she opened it. I think she was expecting something girly like a doll or makeup. She was not happy about her fishing pole... even though it was purple and pink and had "Sweet Pea" engraved on it. That's what PaPa calls her. I think she would have been happy just borrowing Baylor's pole. LOL.







After Baylor put her reel on and showed her how to use it, she was warming up to the fact that she indeed was going to have her very own fishing pole. I'm sure once we get to the lake, she will be thrilled to have her own purple pole.... especially after she opens her other gifts and gets some girly things. LOL. Let's hope she can catch a fish with it!!

More family arriving today and tomorrow for the party. The weather is suppose to be beautiful. A is really excited today. My friend Nan made her the most beautiful dress to wear. Oh, to be five again. :)

Have a great weekend everyone!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Happy Birthday Sweet A! Oh she is just descrumptious Cami! The look on her face. I remember when Cabbage patch dolls were all the craze - my parents got my sister one for her birthday or Christmas or something and she opened it - cried because she wanted a GI JOE doll! (like my brothers played with)...

ahhh! GOOD TIMES!

Enjoy that pole A!

"Happy Birthday to Averie." What a beautiful child and name. She does have a very perplexed look on her face. Like you said once she gets to the lake she'll be happy she has it. TFS.
