Now Sassy and 6!

Happy Birthday to my sassy little 6 year old! Here's to the first day of being 6!

Having to pose for the camera with Hoot the owl (made by mommy).



Eating a lot of homemade smoothy pops.


Getting into the pool without help.


Making wishes and blowing out the candles of the lavender chocolate cake (will share recipe tomorrow).
Eating the cake. Yum!

Making silly 6 year old faces!


Opening gifts from beautiful blogger friends. Thank you Goose from Fairy Magic.


Special lollies from Spain. Thank you Jane from Spain Daily.

Playing in the pool with new little friends from Mimi.


Finding new growth of the plant variety.


And discovering a molting green lacewing, which is a beneficial insect to the garden, YEA!

What a beautiful day!
***Blogger friends, sorry I haven't commented for the past few days; life has been crazy for me for the past few days (will spare you the details). Friends that visit my blog, if you are still having problems reaching my blog, type in http://5orangepotatoes.com/. That should get you there without poblems; the blogspot address is supposed to be fixed soon. I still don't know why the blogrolls and dashboards are updating on some but not others. Sorry for the inconvenience; hopefully Blogger will have it fixed soon.
