Was it really 5 years ago?

According to the calendar, Rebekah turned 5 years old on Wednesday, October 29th. I'm not convinced! Surely my sweet little peachy pie just started to walk and talk a few months ago, right? Where does the time go?

The birthday morning loves is a favorite birthday tradition! I love snuggling the birthday child in my lap and telling them about their very first birthday...the day they were born! Rebekah loves to hear how she tried to arrive bum first after doing a somersault and gowing breech at 8 centimeters! She prides herself on being the only one to arrive the "extra-special way"...C-section! (Those red-headed tendencies exerted themselves early...and till this day she still tries to do everything "her own way"! ) I will always love cradling my babies, no matter how big they get!

Bekah is starting to look awake, and momma is trying not to bawl thinking back on Bekah arriving in our family!

Ooh, now this is extra special! Bekah tried out Pop-tarts for the first time along with her birthday breakfast Kamberlynne made just for her! Bekah picked out the Barbie Poptarts last week at the store for her birthday breakfast, and they nearly didn't make it to the special day! But Bekah says they were worth the wait!

On to the traditional birthday photo shoot! What a special thing to be a big sister!

So sweet as Ella moves in for a slippery birthday kiss!

My favorite. The birthday girl with her two favorite playmates! Aren't they adorable?!?!?

Even though momma still made everyone do school, we still celebrated with a movie in the middle of the day! And we all enjoyed Bekah's birthday pick for dinner...not just regular pizza, but as our kids call it "pizza that the man brings" other words, not the kind mom makes! Believe me, I don't mind!

The day only got better when Grandmom and Pop joined us for...

Birthday Cake! Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise cake! That's momma's girl, all right!

Thanks for the tent and sleeping bag, grandmom and pop! What a great present!

Everyone is going to enjoy it, I'm sure!

Crawl into your sleeping bag and go to bed, big girl! We're praying for you to grow big and strong, and that you will always be blessed with happiness! We're so grateful for all the happiness you have brought to us! We hope you had a very Happy Birthday! We love you forever!

Hi Bekah! How about bringing that sleeping bag and coming on over for a sleepover with Auntie Amber? See you on Tuesday.
Love you FIVE times over.

I love that post! Man time goes by fast, I'm jsut starting to realize that. I love the picture with all three girls and then the one with Bekah and Briella sticking their head out the tent, so cute! Oh yeah and do you have your sister in law, Jen's, blog address? She commented on my blog and when I tried to look at hers it's only open to invited readers. So maybe if it isn't to much trouble could you give me her e-mail adress so I can ask for an invitation or could you give her my e-mail address which is so she can send me an invite. Thanks Catherine!
