Lucy Turns Five

Last week Lucy turned five years old. It’s hard to believe that my little girl is getting so big. When she got up that morning we let her open her presents.
Some of her favorites were the Perry the platypus shirt and the new Barbie clothes.
We found a fire fighter outfit, which Ariel is modeling, and a police officer outfit, though that looks like something you would see at a Halloween party rather than by a police officer.

Lucy said she wanted to have a Phineas and Ferb party this year. So we found a bunch of Phineas and Ferb party stuff at the store and we were ready to party.
Aunt Liz was nice enough to make a Perry the platypus cake for the occasion, and it looks great.

You can check out her blog, I Make Cakes, and see what other creations she has made. She may even be willing to make one for you if the price is right.

My sister Alison, who when she found out that Lucy was having a Phineas and Ferb party asked me when Lucy was going to have a girl party? Well she chose the theme not me this year. In the past we’ve had Cars, Sponge Bob and Star Wars and Lucy has loved them. So when she asks for Princess and Fairies then we will throw a more girl themed party, until then I'll keep enjoying these other parties.

This year we told Lucy she could have a party with friends. We had some kids from the neighbor hood over along with a few cousins and some other friends. We played a few Phineas and Ferb themed games. Like musical chairs with the music from the show, pin the tail on the platypus and my favorite game “Where’s Perry”, where we hide Lucy’s stuffed Perry the platypus and the kids try to find him, those of you who have watched the show know why that’s funny.

It was a lot of fun; Lucy had a real good time and was so excited the whole day. Maybe next year we will have a Princess themed party or a Denver Broncos themed party, we haven’t decided yet.

Such a fun party! Even though I'm not a big fan of Fineas and Ferb. Lucy sure is a cute kid!
