happy birthday to hattie. :)

my baby sister turned five on wednesday. what a gift she is to us! she is so joyful and funny and cute. :) i have more pics, but i wanted to share with you the cake experience. definitely my favorite part because of her reaction. :)

so excited for this cake. the suspense is terrible. (she hadn't seen it yet.)

look at those EYES! she loves loves loves m&m's. her whole cake was covered in them. she was so shocked. love her face. :)

first try. i'm telling you this candle was stubborn.

can i just say i love her smile? "it won't blow out!"

second try.

yay! it finally went out!

she was laughing with so much joy. oh i love her.
