Matilda’s 5th Birthday.

My niece, Matilda, is FIVE.

Y’all, it’s been a month and I still can’t believe it.

And all at the same time, I can.

Because that smart girl has seemed five for a couple years.

But now she actually is, and to celebrate my sister and brother-in-law threw her a rainbow art party.

It was so much fun!

Alice and I went to Matilda’s party, while Tom and Daddy headed over to my nephew’s 10th birthday party that was held on the same day.

(My nephew is TEN?!  Also?  I’m old.  Old enough to be shocked kids are growing.)

It was an absolutely wonderful day and Alice had a great time making a rainbow painting, and making a rainbow sand bottle, and painting my face.

You’re thinking, “Can a 2-year-old do a good job painting a face?”

I have the answer for you in picture form below.

And I think Matilda had a great day with her friends.  She played hard the whole day.

LOVE that big girl!

We’re so happy we could be part of her special day.

Birthday girl!

Mommy and Alice.  We LOVE parties!

Rainbow food.

Alice and Grandma.

Serious artist.

And now for the face painting results…

Matilda painted “owl eyes” on my mom.  Alice was terrified.  She hated it.  When we got home and Daddy asked about the party, she said, “Grandma had scary eyes.”  Scarred for life!

The birthday girl painted this for me.  It started off as a flower, but ended up as a “Lion’s Paw.”  Because you know…that happens.

Alice painted my other cheek.  And chin.  And earring.  You like?  Hoping to start a trend!

LOVED the party!  LOVE the birthday girl!  LOVED this day!
