Staying in the Saddle....

What do you do when the little tiny baby they put in your arms suddenly turns into a five year old little lady and you've hardly had time to catch your breath 
somwhere in between when all this change and growth was going on?

What do you do when you transition from diapers to dollhouses, 
from nighttime feedings to bedtime chats, from crawling to cowgirls?

You bake a Peppermint Pinto Pony  birthday cake and invite all the other 
cowboys/cowgirls in the neighborhood to celebrate.

And you make peace with the fact that there is no catching your breath in this line of work....

there is only the trick of trying to stay in the saddle.


  1. So cute!! And great job on that cake Ashley! :)

  2. Happy Birthday! Hang in there mom. Cute cake.

  3. Now, that is one happy looking little cowgirl!!! All the reward one could want, isn't it?!

    Speaking of staying in the saddle, I nearly slipped-off yesterday, when my first grandchild drove ME on an errand!!!! It was a warm, exciting...Can This Really Be I? feeling!!!

  4. You are doing great. Awesome pictures by the way and love the cake ;)
    I'll be making my first birthday cake in a few weeks for Téah...YIKES!!

  5. I know I am a little 'late' in reading and responding, but how I have missed you so! What a blessed little girl you have to have a momma like you. The cake is ADORABLE and I am still coming to terms myself...some days it is easier than others.
    Hugs and blessings in abundance!

  6. Happy belated 5 (to you both)!
    Are you okay? No posts from you in a long while.
