She also just went in for her 5 year old check up. Here are her stats:
Height: 41 1/2 inches (29%)
Weight: 39 lbs (44%)
She got all of her kindergarten shots last year, so she doesn't need shots again until 6th grade!
Her and her doll, Elizabeth, got to wear matching dresses to church on her birthday!
I was going to make cinnamon rolls for her birthday breakfast that morning, but a cobbler that I had made the week before dripped all over the bottom of the oven and I forgot to clean it. So I preheated the oven and it filled with smoke. We had to improvise, so Maisey asked for pink scrambled eggs. I put in some red food coloring and it turned them orange (duh, yellow and red make orange). Maisey told me they looked like puke, and I would have to totally agree! Haha! I cleaned the oven that afternoon and she got her cinnamon rolls the next morning!
On Sunday after church we went to our friends' property to bbq and play around. I made lots of pink cupcakes to share with everyone!
Then we celebrated at home on Monday night.
When Daddy got home from work he surprised her with flowers!
Maisey got her own Primary song book
some Fancy Nancy books
a game, some Barbie movies, some art projects, and a big bag full of blueberries (which she ate all of them in like 2 days!)
Grammy's friend made Maisey this beautiful Barbie cake. I can't believe how much time and detail went into this thing.
Gage couldn't leave his hands off of it. Look how mischievous his face looks.
This girl had a pretty spectacular 5th birthday!
We sure love her!
