Weekender and Birthday Fun!

As most of you know we celebrated Miss Amira's 5th birthday on Saturday.  We had a party in her honor with lots of food, fun, family, and friends.  By her request everything was pretty much bright pink and Monster High.  She was grinning ear to ear and running around like the wind with all her friends and cousins. 
The kids got to bat at this piñata till it finally busted open and spilled out the candy Amira had filled it with so diligently.  I swear when children see candy they go deaf to their parents.  I always like to blindfold them and spin them around for it too, I'm so horrible!
Monday was Amira's actual birthday and I was so lucky to help out at her classroom that day.  Being able to see her interact with her teachers and school mates was amazing.  She is such a big girl and much more talkative and outgoing than I had pictured.  She is just growing up before our eyes and I have to cherish every moment.
She loved her gifts and Gia is having a blast playing with them too!  Blowing out her five birthday candles on her first ever Dairy Queen ice cream cake, yummy!  We definitely had a sugar rush going on here this last weekend. 
Thank you so very much for all of Amira's birthday wishes on Facebook and Instagram.  We are so touched by your kindness!

  2. Your girls are so beautiful Linzi! And Happy Birthday to little Miss Amira ! <3
    They grow up so fast :( When I was reading about when you went to her class, it made me a little emotional thinking of my girl in school! :P I might have to have my husband take her on her first day because I think I would just bawl.
