On March 25th, our little Lexi had her 5th birthday. Can you believe it? It's so hard to believe that it's been 5 years since she made her crazy, scary entrance into our lives. We are so happy and blessed to have her.She's been so excited about her birthday for months. Constantly asking how many more days until she would turn 5. Needless to say, the morning of her birthday was very exciting for her. We got rides to church, so it was nice to not have to spend 7 hours on going to and from church. We were able to really enjoy the day. She received some fun presents, including new nightgowns, 2 watches, a baby doll, umbrella and her favorite, a musical jewelry box. She chose Lasagna for her birthday dinner and I made a cake and frosting from scratch. It turned out well and she was very excited. She was happy to talk to all of her Grandparents that night and have them wish her Happy Birthday. She was a little sad that none of them could be here with her for her Birthday. Dad also played Twister with the kids. They all really loved that. At age 5, Lexi still loves the color Pink, her favorite food is Lasagne and Spaghetti, she loves kitties, ponies, unicorns and dolphins. She absolutely adores Myra and barely tolerates Noah. She loves to throw her arms around you and give you a hug and a kiss. We love this little girl so much!
Lexi also got to start school this week! She will be going to a special "Kindergarten", where they will teach her Danish. She started today and was so excited and maybe a little nervous. She was so happy that there were several girls in her class. I think it will be a really great experience for her. I think she'll pick up Danish really quickly and I'm glad that she will have the opportunity to make some friends. What was funny though, is when I went to pick her up, the head leader over the school, came and started asking me a bunch of questions about Lexi's birthday and how old she is. They all thought that because she is so small, she couldn't possibly be 5 yet.
