Thursday Thoughts

Today, I'm thinking about...

Yesterday! Because it was Flynn's 5th Birthday! And I was so happy for her and for the gift of her life, that I spend no time lamenting the fact that my baby is now 5. It was a wonderful day for my Cinderella loving girl.

We spent the morning playing games and relaxing, because of course, when you homeschool Preschool, you take your birthday off. Then we got her all ready for party. She thought her party was going to be here at our house. But we told her we needed to go pick up Rhett from work at the theatre...and...

She was sooooo surprised!!!!!

She was happy to see her best friend/cousin Cammie, as well as her Aunt Margie and Uncle Chris, Aunt Sally, Aunt Scarlett and Grandma Margaret and Madison's bestie Miss Jessica.

They peeked at the cake before we opened presents...

and after presents we had the beautiful, delicious cake!

Then it was time to get our popcorn and head inside...

where my girl got to see her Cinderella on the big screen! She loved every single moment.

Then it was home to open family presents and sing Happy Birthday to our Flynn...just the six of us. And eat pumpkin bread, of course.

My girl had a wonderful day! I am thankful to the amazing friends at the theater who went out of their way to make sure Flynn had a perfect birthday. Thank all of you also for the birthday love. And for the record...we added three new Cinderellas to the mix! : )


  1. What a great party!!!! And what a beautiful girl! Happy Birthday, Flynn!

  2. It looks like it was the perfect day :) I was homeschooled with my sister and we always got to take our birthday off.
