July 28th was Gloria's 5th birthday and we had fun celebrating. We had a lot of activities planned on her actual birthday - too bad they were all for the older kids! We did end the day with a pink frosted cake!!
We threw a party the next week at the park. It was simple and I made the greatest pinata! It's a Honey Nut Cheerios box covered in a bag that you put presents in. I taped tissue paper on the top to make it more authentic.
It was funny that this pinata lasted longer than any other pinata we have ever used. The string broke and at the end David was having the big kids play baseball with it. It was hilarious.
Gloria loved being the birthday girl. She loves to give hugs and kisses. She is a sweet girl that loves to be a girl. She loves dresses and pink shoes. She loves it when I call her princess. Gloria loves to play with Nephi. They come up with some great games. Gloria plays with My Little Ponies, collects Barbies - she doesn't play with them so much as just likes to have a lot of them. She loves Littlest Pets Shop toys and especially playing with the big girls stuff. She is excited to start Kindergarten and can't wait to go to the big kids school. Gloria loves to be read to and would sit for hours if someone would just keep reading to her. She loves to have her hair done. Glo is a happy little girl that makes me smile daily!! I'm so glad she was sent to our family - with her bright blonde hair and big blue eyes. I love this kid!!
