My sweet girl is 5!

I cannot believe Ivy is 5 years old!  WOW!  Like I reaaaally can't believe it!  She is my little baby!  Her turning 5 is bitter sweet.  I love the young lady she is becoming but at the same time the thought of her going into school makes me crazy!  
I always struggle with party planning with her birthday being so close to the holidays!  I knew I was going to do a Mary Poppins theme but didn't allow any time to plan I leterally did eveything the day before....which was ok because it was midweek and we had a very small guest count anyway I just hate being rushed.
Well it turned out very cute anyway so I was happy (=
and we had a very special guest.....

MARY POPPINS!!!!!! (=  

 The whole time we were in Disneyland Ivy kept asking for this Lady stuffed animal!  I had to wait until she was sleeping to sneak and buy it!

 loooooove this one!
 my birthday princess!!!

Family photos!!!! (=

I hadn't done professionals of Ivy and I in an embarrassing amount of time!  I was set on doing Christmas cards this year even though money and time were tight!  My friend Dave who is the main photographer at the wedding chapel I work at shot these awesome pictures!!! I can't thank him enough!  Poor Ivy was a little sick )=  but they turned out so well (=

December is my FAVORITE month!!!!  I love the family time, the weather, the shopping, the feeling in the air...everything!!!  We has a busy month!    

Below are a few pictures from my work party.  It was held at Frankie's Tiki Lounge and we all dressed to impress in our Hawaiian attire (= Perfect for Christmas right? 

 I love my co-workers!!! 

The day after Christmas the fam left for DISNEYLAND!  Brennan and I worked and went up 2 days after.  Ivy got to go for 4 days!  It was awesome of course!!!  But the day I went it rained most of the day :/
