Our sweet Jade turned 5 years old last week.
Where did the time go?
She will be in kindergarten next year.
In this picture she is graduating from preschool just last month.
Jade is getting a big hug from her mommy with a chocolate cookie in hand. LOL!
After Jade’s graduation ceremony we went to The Cheesecake Factory for a delicious lunch.
Jade is so silly. She and Kaylin had fun making whip cream mustaches. LOL!
Jade is twirling with her Cinderella dress at the Disney store. She loved seeing her reflection in the mirror.
Jade had a Monster High themed birthday party.
I must admit that I didn’t really know what Monster High is all about.
Monster High is a fashion doll franchise released by Mattel in July 2010.
The characters are inspired by monster movies, sci-fi horror, and thriller fiction therefore distinguishing them from most fashion dolls.
It was based on the 1989 film of the same name.
The characters are depicted as being either related to or as offspring of famous monsters such as Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, Medusa, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Phantom of the Opera, and zombies.
Jade is obsessed with Halloween and zombies, don’t ask me why??? LOL!
Emmett is “styl’in” his car face painting and Monster High top hat.
Baby Maya had a cute little pink heart painted on her chubby cheeks.
She has the cutest cheeks and baby pudge in her arms and legs.
It doesn’t seem possible but she is now 5 months old.
Jade’s Mom had Princess Merida from the movie Brave come and do face painting and story telling for the children.
She was so cute with the children and they each got to use her bow and arrow.
She spoke with a Scottish accent the entire party.
Andrea served pizza, salad and garlic bread for the birthday party.
One of Marisa’s friends made this amazing Monster High birthday cake.
The cake “dress” was decorated with skeletons, spiders, zebra stripes, and decorative swirls.
Alec decided that he needed to gather twigs so he could make his own bow and arrow set just like Princess Merida. LOL!
Jade is getting a birthday hug from Princess Merida. She was so cute with the children.
Here is a group shot of the birthday children minus a few children who couldn’t stop playing to pose for the picture.
The birthday party was so much fun for the children and the adults.
We all love our sweet Jade who is now 5 years old.
