Happy Birthday to Hood #7 and Welcome to the World of Five…

January 17th, 2013 · 18 Comments

Can this be that our second youngest child is five already… hold on to your hats folks because time is flying past!!! In the middle of the Sketchbook Project deadline we cleared the decks for cake…


I can not believe this little one is already five… but the candles wouldn’t lie…


This gal can handle any challenge…


And will try anything that her older siblings can do…


In fact will try anything new…


And will happily join in any game…


She can not resist a good book…


Or a pile of books for that matter…


Or a character from a book…


Anywhere is good to read a book…


Her love of technology… well a cookie tray really will do!!!


Who simply adores any amount of pretty…


Who loves keeping house…


No matter how big or small…


And taking care…


And babies…


Tea-parties are a way of life…


And so is dressing for the occasion!!!


Really dressing up…


For enthusiasm she is tops…


And energy boundless…


For arting… she is fantastic!!!


She may be small…


But her spirit is huge…


You do want this gal on your team…


These little feet are well worth following…

Happy Brilliant Birthday… I can’t wait for another fun year with you!!!


Four was fabulous…


Three was thrilling…


Two was tremendous…


One was Wonderful…

I can’t wait to see what five is going to be!!!

    Happy Birthday! My goodness, I started reading when she was two and now five!!! How the years fly.
    Love the cake!

    By the way, yesterday we got our Where’s Wally package from you in the mail! We are in Canada and we loved receiving mail from South Africa!!!
    In Canada, Where’s Wally is called Where’s Waldo? We will put the poster and stickers to good use.
