On Monday, Julia celebrated her 5th Birthday.....I can't believe my little baby girl is FIVE already!

 She loves to kick back with a good book, loves the outdoors,  and help mommy in the garden.
 He loves to create things: We bought her a little bead kit on clearance the other day and she went to town. She made a couple of bracelets, and a necklace...she was in a creativity zone!
 She made one bracelet with her name on it, one that said "CAT" and her necklace was "Hello Kitty".
 Julia shares her birthday week with two other members of our family. We enjoyed some strawberry angel food cake
 Though there may be a large range in ages...we all have fun celebrating together.

 Speaking of being creative, Julia designed her first quilt this past winter! She picked out the print fabric and I had a package of pastel fabric squares. She laid out the whole design all by herself. Then she would with sit on my lap, then put her hands on top of my hands and help me sew it together. If she wasn't sewing with me she was handing me the next row of squares to sew together. She is very proud of her first quilt....not to mention her mommy is so happy to have her enjoy quilting!
 After making the top, we sent if off to our long arm quilter. She used to this rainbow like design to help soften all the squares. She also used lime green thread to quilt it (I would have never thought of using that color, but I love it! So i decided to bind it with lime green fabric I already had on hand.
 I really love this bright, but not overwhelmingly bright fabric Julia picked out.
 On her special "party day" she wanted chocolate cake, chocolate icing with sprinkles on top, served chocolate ice cream!
 Guess how thrilled she was when she got pink glitter fingernail polish? Yep, she is girly!
 Dont' let all the girly-ness fool you, she loves to be dirty and exploring with her brothers!
