Lauren’s Birthday

I haven’t posted for over a month and I have no idea where the time went!  So far, this year is moving at the speed of light and I wish it would slow the heck down!

Lauren’s birthday was just yesterday and we had her party on Saturday.  I can’t believe she’s 5 and starting kindergarten this year.  I had our China travel album out for the party and was flipping through it with a friend of mine.  It seems like yesterday and so very long ago all at the same time.  Lauren’s come SO incredibly far since then and seeing the pain on her face in those pictures always makes my heart sink.  These days she is a happy, fun loving, sweet, smart, forever smiling little girl and we love her so much. 

Here’s a little video of her party.  She had debated on her party theme for months and got it narrowed down to Olivia and Yo Gabba Gabba.  Well, once her party was over she told me she wants to do Olivia next year.  I told her that next year is very far away and we can decide on that later!
