My almost birthday girl!

Look who's turning five! My little birthday girl...Miss Aspen Isabella!

Ahhh...where did five years of my life go? Some days can be very long, but I am pretty sure five years just went by in the blink of an eye! In just a few, short days my sweet Aspen will be five! So here is a quick peek at a new dress inspired by a new birthday! I always think it is rather difficult to design dresses to sell this time of year. People are done buying winter, although the season is just getting started...and spring just seems so far off! So here is my attempt at a dress for all seasons!
Complete with a bright pink and black rosette sash to match! And a headband too, if your daughter keeps them on. Aspen is seriously cracking me up with her poses. She was super excited to have her picture taken this afternoon, and I have to say all her poses were in slow motion to accomodate my impromtu photo shoot!

Cupcakes and cocoa with Santa

This weekend we had the great pleasure of going to an early morning Christmas party with Santa! Santa made a special appearance for about an hour with six sweet kiddos. They had a ball and Aspen continues to talk about what Santa told her about his night around the world. He prefers chocolate chip cookies, and not to leave too many carrots for the reindeer or they get excited and wake the kids up in the middle of the night.

It was a great morning with good friends, and really one of our first chances to savor the season with other friends. We do have the house all decked out and small Christmas projects are part of each and every day! Now, if only these tots would realize they need to behave to get their presents!
