I'm Tessie -Welcome home!

I can hardly believe my youngest child is 5 years old!  How did that happen?  It seems so weird to be done potty training, done with diapers, and done with sleepless nights.  I am quite enjoying this new phase of life, but I must admit it feels awfully weird after having babies for so long.

Emma is the youngest of 4.  She has two big sisters and a brother.  And now she is 5!!!

As much as I love throwing pinterest worthy parties, sometimes I just do not have the time or energy.  This year we decided to keep things simple and let Emma’s dance teacher do all the work 🙂

The party was at Julie Dall’s Studio of Dance and Miss Julie did such a wonderful job keeping all the little girls busy and entertained.

They danced and frolicked around the studio with batons…

Played a rousing game of Limbo…

Had a killer obstacle course complete with mini trampoline, tunnels and a giant piano….

Played pin the tutu on the ballerina…

And  chased bubbles…

Just to name a few 🙂

After lots of fun in the dance studio, we all had cupcakes and Emma opened her presents.

Emma is pretty much obsessed with pink, so we had strawberry cupcakes with pink cream cheese icing.  I also found these adorable printable cake toppers from Tatertots and Jello here.  They say “Tutu sweet!” Perfect for a ballet party 🙂

After cupcakes and presents, the girls played dress up, did a bit more dancing and ended with the big parachute.  It was such a lovely, stress free party.  Thank you Miss Julie!

This little impromptu hug around Emma, was my favorite moment of the day…


Happy Birthday to my dear, sweet, pink, Emma! I can’t believe you are growing so fast.
