On May 7th Olivia turned 5 years old!!!! I can't believe I have a 5 year old!!!  This was the first year that she had a friends party, we ended up having 14 little girls over to our house for a princess themed party.  They were all so cute and came dressed up as cute princess's.  Olivia loved every minute of her special day.  This is her last birthday before she is in school, tear.  This August she will be going into Kindergarten in a brand new school.  Whenever we drive by her new school she always tells me to look at how big it is.  I don't know how I will handle her going to Kindergarten, and she will get to ride a school bus!  I am super nervous about the bus, but Olivia is beyond thrilled about it.  
Okay back to her birthday, so this year Olivia got a bike.  She had been telling us FOREVER that she wanted one.  She is so cute riding it, and is very cautious.  She always got a blow bouncy ball pin from my parents, luckily we have a basement where is fits great.  Then with all the presents all the guest bought she made a killing.  I'm so glad that she has some great friends.  Olivia is my little social girl and make a friend anywhere but she really has some great friends.  I'm so proud of her and the wonderful girl she is becoming.  She is still fiercely independent, but she has a big heart.  She is always looking out for Sophie, she hates to see Sophie get hurt and will actually cry herself.  She is such a sweetheart and I can't wait to see what year 5 brings for her!

It was a great party!! I love that first picture with Olivia coming down the stairs, cute! That is fun that Olivia gets to ride the bus, it will be a lot easier for you too once you get over the anxiety of it all.
