There is something so magical about birthdays.
I remember being a kid and just WAITING, longing for my birthday. To be older. One of the big kids. To grow up.
Now that I am here...making my way through life as a pseudo adult, I wish I could back to being young. Back to the days when summer seemed to last forever. Long summer days drifting into summer nights. Back to when getting older was exciting and seemed to hold the unknown.
Now birthdays just means more wrinkles!
So back in December we got to celebrate a magical 5th birthday for little Avery. Its crazy to think she is just 5. She seems so much older. Probably because she is always trailing close behind her Big sister Ashtynn.
so we headed to the most Magical place in Utah County....Chuck E. Cheese!
I mean who DOESN'T want to eat food at an establishment ran by a mouse?
ITs a win in my book.
It was a lot of fun to see my nieces and their cousins running around, playing games, winning tickets and having a good time.

After the kids ran around for a while and Ate pizza it was time to move on to the present portion of this party! Watching little ones open presents is so funny. They get a kick out of the smallest things.
Nothing makes a little one feel rich like a handful of $1 bills!
Avery had the biggest smile about her Justin Beiber T-Shirt! She is in SOOOO much love with him. Its hilarious. She sings his songs and jokes about how he is in love with her too. I mean he says it on the movie! hee hee she is a riot.
things I love about Avery's littler personality:
- She is extremely rational. Tell her we will be somewhere in a minute, and she will call you out on it.
- She is bold.
- She is a sassy little one.
- She is loving and kind.
- She loves to use the Amharic we taught her over and over again.
- She is smart.
- She loves Adam. Whenever I see her she says Where's Adam? At her party she asked the same. I told her that he was working. She was sad- THAT'S not fair! He shouldn't have to be at yogurtland when Im having a party.
It was an AWESOME party and a lot of fun!
