Aunt Katie's Wedding!!

Matt's sister, Katie,
had a fun wedding up in Fort Collins
a few weeks ago.

Allikaye had one of the biggest highlights
of her little 5 year old life...
she was a flower girl!!
Serious excitement for this girl!

Here is Miss Flower Girl at the rehearsal.
So pretty.
Allikaye's cousin, Anna,
Matt's other sister's little girl,
was the other flower girl.
Now THIS is the girl I know so well....
Then the big day came!
I love this first picture.
I can see us recreating one when AK gets married someday.
Oh the tears!!
Daddy and girl...
Flower girls...
Here is the beautiful bride and Allikaye before the wedding...
Opening her present from Katie...
Cute sock monkey...
she loved it.
Anna and Allikaye
You think she likes to pose?
She actually said,
"Mom, would you like me to do 'the peek'
for this picture?"
She did so great walking down the aisle
and sprinkling her rose petals!

Then came the reception!
Dance time!
Dancing with her daddy is an
all time favorite for this chick.
I think daddy likes it too!
I thoroughly enjoyed watching
these two rule the dance floor.
And I couldn't leave out the
"Matt and Allikaye Signature Move"
They did this about 50 times.
So funny!
Oh yeah!
Here is the perfect picture of how the night ended...
sleepy sleepy flower girl.
She loved every minute.

We are so happy for Aunt Katie and Kenny!
Thanks for having Allikaye be a part of your big day!
She treasured it!

The 5 year old birthday party...

Allikaye decided that this year she
wanted a pajama party...
well, a sleepover, actually.
But this prego mom is not ready for that step yet!!

So everyone wore their pajamas
and brought their sleeping bags.
Allikaye really planned it all.

We decorated sugar cookies.
Played, "Dragon, Dragon, what time is it"
(a game that AK explained to me).
Played freeze dance.
Opened presents.
Ate pizza.
Ate cupcakes.
And had an all around 5 year old good time!

Delaney and AK being the "dragons"
The whole gang yelling,
"Dragon, what time is it?!"
Getting close to the cute dragons!
Here are some pics of Allikaye and her friends...
Sweet Delaney.
Kaida and Mallory...
Allikaye got some light up Sketchers...
she SO wanted these!!
This made me laugh.
I bought this unicorn for a dollar this summer at a garage sale.
Thankfully I remembered I had hid it for just an
occasion as a 5 year old party.
It is classy...porcelain...oh yeah.
Only a 5 year old would think this
is an awesome present!
Then the cupcakes and the singing!
Sweet, happy, intelligent, curious, funny, whistling machine!
I love my pretty little 5 year old!

Now she keeps asking when kindergarten starts...
noooo! It can't be!

Here are some questions and answers from
Allikaye - 5 year old:

What is your favorite food:
Girl Scout cookies

What is your favorite color:

What is your favorite movie:

Allikaye is 5!!!

My pretty girl is really 5...
hard to believe!
The day started with her emerging from her
pink cave
through streamers...
Pretty 5 year old with bed head...
Opened some presents...

Then after a doctor appointment
for mama and the twin babes...
we headed to a day planned out entirely by
Miss 5 Year Old herself.

First stop...
Build a Bear Workshop...
Stuffing her new pink kitty...
Making a wish on the heart...
Wash station...
And the dressed up creation...
she named her
"Valentine's Princess"
"ValentiMe's Princess"
Second stop was mac and cheese lunch at Noodles...
then Krispy Kreme (made this prego lady happy)...
then games and tickets at Chuck E. Cheese.

Happy Birthday Allikaye!
You are a daily blessing.
Words can not express.
I love you, you 5 year old!
