My brown eyed girl

On August 16, 2004, my sweet Trinidee was born!

And we celebrated her 5th birthday on Sunday, August 16, 2009. That morning before church, she opened her presents and had some time to play with them.
We had dinner at Kevin's parents house Sunday night, and celebrated the 3 August b-days: Me, Trin, & Toby. There are so many people in the family now that one cake isn't enough anymore. Kevin bought this princess cake for Trin the night before. It was hard juggling 2 cakes, singing happy birthday, and keeping kids from lighting themselves on fire with the candles.

Trin was concentrating on blowing out the candles, and slanted the cake a little too far forward. And this is what happened...........

But, she saved her princesses!

Trinidee loves to: COLOR, put puzzles together, spend time with family, swing on the swingset, hang on the top bar of the swingset and go from one end to the other, (she's got some strong hands!), get her nails painted, play with barbies, paint, swim, go to Discovery Gateway, go to hotels, Disneyland, and she LOVES birthdays!
When she's excited to do something, she'll say, "I can't wait, I'm so exciting!" She also says, "you did that on purfose."
She just started Kindergarten a couple of weeks ago. She goes for a half day from 12:05-3:20.
Trinidee is a very independent little girl, and she has her own unique personality. I'm so happy I have such a sweet daughter. And I can't believe she's already 5 years old!

She makes me laugh with her facial expressions and the things she says. I love it when she puts on make-up and bats her eyelashes and then asks, "Do I look pretty?" Plus those huge brown eyes, gorgeous.
You have great kids Tia. Happy birthday to you both.
