Golden Birthday!

My baby is 5... FIVE!!! Well, not technically yet. Her actual birthday is in a couple of days but Jon and I will be in Houston then, so we celebrated her golden birthday at the American Girl Store in Chicago this past weekend. A great time was had by all!

This post will be short on words but big on pictures... my brain is mush right now from all the market prep, so I'm not feeling too chatty right now, but I wanted to get these up before we left. :)

  3. You already know how cute Sydney is, but can I just say how sweet it is that Samantha and mini me could set aside their generational fashion issues and have tea together?! I cannot wait to go with my daughter. Happy birthday miss 5 yr old!!

  23. Doesn't she look sweet! Just like her dolls. (love the dandelion fabric) I bought my DD an Australian Girl doll (http://australiangirldoll.com.au/) when I found out they existed. I had been admiring the American Girl dolls for ages.
    It looks like you had a lovely time out together. Happy Birthday Sydney!

  24. Happy Birthday, Sydney! What an incredible birthday party....one she will remember, forever, I'm sure. Isn't the American Girl store to die for??!! When we lived in the Chicago suburbs, we took my daughter there several times and had a fabulous time. She's 14 now and still remembers all the fun we had! Have a great time in Houston.
