My beautiful baby girl Liberty is five years old today!! Here she is opening one of her favourite presents 'Beados' which she had been wanting since Christmas! We had a party with all her friends last Saturday when we were staying at the cousins house.Here's a peek at what the table looked like. I'll do another post about the party, I'm just waiting for some more photos. It was a Princess Cinderella party!
Me and my Cinderella!

Making trinket boxes.
While the children were playing the next game I had someone secretly put some chocolate coins in the trinket boxes they had made.
The kids were so surprised!

On Wednesday we took a cake to kindergarten for her last day. On Friday we took cupcakes to Mainly Music for her last day there.
And today we baked crown shaped cookies for an afternoon tea party at home with the grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins.
There's baby cousin Lucy, she enjoyed the party! YES, IT"S GREAT TO BE FIVE!!!!!!

  7. Congratulations Liberty. I love your Cinderella dress, its beautiful. I hope you had a great time.


  8. Wow ,,, Liberty is such a beautiful little girl and she looks so happy about turning 5 . You know , all of those extra special little touches and special things you do for her are creating the most wonderful childhood memories that I'm sure she'll just never forget. You're such a good mother. She'll probably be just like her mom when she grows up beacause she'll remember how happy her mother made her.

    Mini hugs!

  13. Happy Birthday Liberty! You are a princess! Love the dress in the last photo!

  14. Congratulations and a big hug for both of you! I love the last picture of the beautiful birthday-girl. So full of life! I've been a lazy commenting lately, but I've watched your every post in detail and man, the house looks fine!

    The cakes are just amazing and this is the right spirit, when you have a birthday, celebrate it at least twice... or three times.. or maybe four... five would be good, when turning five.. No wonder mother's a bit tired....


  15. Happy Birthday Liberty!!! That crown is beautiful (almost as beautiful as you are). What a wonderful week you have had and a very "sweet" one too - my favorite kind. 5 years old is a magical age and I think the most enjoyable.

    The picture of Liberty came up on my blog next to the picture of you both in the side bar - and boy! Mercedes you look so much alike. She is the image of you!

  20. I remembered when my niece was 3 and she had 5 birthday cakes because mummy just had to get her one for kindy, family, friends etc etc! LOL! She is a lucky lucky girl to have a mummy like you, Mercedes! Well done, everything look really really beautiful!

  21. That you spend a day wonderful in family!
