My Baby Turned 5!!!

Here is the youngest of my children.  Jess.... she goes off to school this year..((yikes)).  So she decided she wanted a "Princess Swim Party"... is that an oxymoron or what??  Swimming and Princess??  

But before we could swim in our princess attire... we had to celebrate our family tradition.  "Teddy Bear Pancakes" ... every birthday we all wake up (early sometimes) and make teddy bear shaped pancakes.  The kids get to load it up and decorate their own personal teddy head with whipped cream, cherries, chocolate chips, sprinkles... anything I can find in my baking cabinet that can stuck on a bear head and eaten.

Here are their masterpieces!!!

All the wonderful people who came to join us at Jess's birthday...and a Pinata (she called a Yadda)

And here is the Princess herself.  (Of course I had to make her a cake... what kind of mom would I be if I didn't)
