A Day of Celebrating

Xan's birthday yesterday was literally an entire day of celebrating.  Turning 5 is a very big deal you know.  So for those grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins (and few really good friends) ----Here is the play by play.  
We started the day with a candle on her requested pancakes with purple sprinkles.

A quick snapshot in her birthday shirt and "stylish" scarf.  

Cupcakes for her class at school.....all ready for Mom to deliver.

Happy Birthday sung in 2 languages and then blowing out more candles.

Her classmates enjoying the sweet treat after nap time.  

Happy friends all around the table.

A great big card from her sweet and pretty too.

Her class (with the traditional Chinese gesturing of course).

She loves Ms. Brittney!

Ms. Leelee

We visited some friends after school for more cupcakes and they sang Happy Birthday to her in 4 different languages (very cool but very uncool that Mom forgot her camera).  Then we came home for a yummy "requested" dinner of pork chops and mashed potatoes with salad.  For some reason, she wanted to open presents right after we finished dinner.  So........we did.

She was very happy about the purple sparkly fingernail polish.

But even more excited when she opened her eyes and saw her new kitchen.  

After cooking up several meals she decided it was time to cut her birthday cake.  Some of Stan's Chinese friends had this cake delivered (we were all so surprised and grateful) that afternoon.  It was almost like a cheesecake....very tasty and came with LOTS of candles which, of course, she thought needed to all be used.

We finished our day like we began....with candles for the birthday girl. 

Chat with you later.
