Today, S. turns 5 years old... I can hardly believe it! Last year when she was at the baby house, we celebrated all day long, so of course we had to do it again this year! This morning I stopped by the baby house to pick up her cupcakes (I made them there yesterday) and her little brother, L. We then picked up S. and headed over to Globos for ice cream. They played for a bit and then S. chose a "Piglet" ice cream sundae for her and L. to share. We walked around the Cine Center for a bit and stopped in a store that has all sorts of little gifts. She had to have a little pink sheep purse so that ended up being her gift. She kept telling L. that for his birthday, I can pick her up and we can come back to Globos again because "it's so fun!"
The birthday celebrations didn't end there though! We still had to celebrate with the big kids. After a very yummy picante de pollo lunch, we ate cupcakes. We were so excited that Oriana (adopted last year from House 3) and her mom were able to join us for her party! S. was thrilled with the play makeup kit that Oriana gave her and they spent the remainder of the afternoon giving each other makeovers as the other kids looked on.
It was a busy but fun day with these two siblings! L. didn't want to leave but was asleep the second we got in the taxi to head back to the baby house, and S. is already looking forward to L.'s birthday in January!
Lots of pictures of S.'s big day!
