happy birthday sweet girl

Your birthday is a special time to celebrate the gift of 'you' to the world.”

5. How the heck did you become so amazing in 5 short years???
I am utterly blown away by you.You are thoughtful, kind, caring, sweet and funny. I'd like to think I had something to do with that but mostly I know, its just you :)

And so we celebrated this lovely little girl today. She went to preschool ( yep I had to cut the first of some strings today, I offered her everything to stay home and celebrate with me but she really wanted to go. I know she had the best day) and had her first preschool concert where she read if front of everyone for the first time. I thought I would burst :)

We came home and decorated her cake with smarties and freckles. We had a special dinner. We raced down the hill in boxes.

We watched a movie I made of her life so far. And I know I am the luckiest.

And now that its over, I can finally say that Rosalina was a big hit. The second pattern was so much better than the first one I posted.
So here it is :) The pattern. The tutorial
Its all done in photos and even for the worlds worst sewer, I found this worked so well.
And she is well loved already. Just like my big girl :)

I only have fairy wings to go! yay me!
