Sierra Turns 5

What is it about 5?  I absolutely love 5 year olds.  And now I have one in my house!  For Sierra’s birthday this year, she requested a “breakfast on the farm” birthday, so we did our best to accommodate with our own little “Yeh Farm.”

FYI — Hay bails are very cheap the day after Halloween!

Thank you’s were very simple this year; recycled jelly jars filled with homemade play dough.  I wanted to fill them with treats, but with all the Halloween candy floating around I figured most moms would appreciate something inedible.

The party began as they all do; with coloring farm pictures and a simple chick craft.

Then breakfast by the chickens… (Sierra requested eggs, bacon, hash browns, and fruit.)

The best part was the “surprise.”  We hired a sweet lady from Becky’s Pony Express to bring 2 ponies and a petting zoo.  Sierra had no idea!

Daniel was ready to buy a goat.  (No, seriously.  HELP!)

Last, but not least:  “Pin the tail on the chicken.”  Idea by Sierra Yeh.  Illustrated by Natalie Yeh.  Handwriting by Allison Yeh.  A game that required nothing from me — YEH!
