Audrey turned five yesterday. It was a day filled with fun. She helped me bake the cake. She decorated the cake by herself. She requested a chocolate heart cake with chocolate frosting and M&Ms.
Her dinner request was hot dogs with red peppers and strawberries. She put the strawberries on her hot dog. John and I thought it was gross, but she ate the whole thing that way. She is a kid who knows what she wants and goes after it.
The only thing she wanted for her birthday was a lasso. Both kids are currently obsessed with Sheriff Callie, and she has a lasso. Today we spent several hours roping a bull. Well, it was our version of a bull, which is a baseball tee in a wash tub.
She is a really great kid. She is kind. She is creative. She is smart. She is active. She is funny. If I could bottle her spirit and keep her this joyful forever I would. The past five years have flown. I fear next week I’ll be sitting down to write a post about her turning ten. Please tell me how to slow down time.
