Happy Birthday to My Kasi Girl

Kassia Rachel turned 5 today...and I can't quite believe it. For some reason 5 sounds so much older than 4. :( Makes me rather sad, actually. Perhaps it's the knowledge that Kasi is my baby...and I know that all too soon I'll be waving good-bye as she gets on the school bus. Thankfully I have her for one more year as she ventures off to pre-k for 3 mornings a week in the fall. For now, I'll focus on today...

I made her this ladybug cake, with lots of love:

She had a wonderful day with lots of friends, and ended it with cupcakes at her family party...where she made another wish...

Today was Kasi's day and as I pause to reflect on it, these things I know: This little girl lights up my world. :) She is so full of joy and happiness. Her giggles are infectious. She stops me several times a day just to say, "Mommy, I love you SO much." She gives me hugs when I need them (and often senses when that is). I so cherish my walks with her lately, we just stroll along looking for cardinals and chipmunks. We stop to smell the flowers and sometimes she rides her bike. She's such a bright girl, wise beyond her years. I love the conversations we have. She loves hippos, ladybugs, zebras and clown fish. She can give a bear hug like no-other and is such an immense blessing to me. Kassia was a surprise baby, God sure knew that I needed her. I just could NOT even begin to imagine my life without her.
Happy, Happy Birthday sweet Kassia Rachel :) Mommy loves you more than words could ever say. :)

What a wonderful cake. You are so very talented. The kids are going to have such great memories of their special cakes made with love by Mom. Looks like Kasi had a great birthday!
