Meet our 5 year old, Maya ...

Who could believe it,  but Maya turned 5 yesterday.  Such a big preschooler now.  Maya was born on AFL Grand Final Day and it's school holidays now too,  so yesterday was a quiet day at creche and footy day too. 

Because it was our last ever birthday cake at creche, the 19th birthday that the kids have celebrated at creche and the 19th cake Jenny the Cook has made for the kids over the past 16 years, Maya could pick the colour - pink!  All the kids from the centre came into her room to celebrate and have lunch.  As it was footy day it was hot dogs and pies and a lot of tomato sauce.  Home after lunch to have a play with the new toys and her choice of dinner.

Maya had a great day,  and she still loves playdough.  I couldn't resist this blog pic back when  Maya was two.  Next year she will be my school girl.  Enjoy every minute of being 5!
** edit for overseas readers.  Our state of Victoria, Australia is taken over this weekend for the Australia Rules Grand Final.  Footy Day is where the kids dress up in their favorite team colours (Western Bulldogs for us) and eat traditional football food - meat pies and hot dogs. Maya being born on Grand Final Day means she will never be able to have her party on her birthday - its a day of celebration, hiding if you don't like football, barbecues and drinking and it's pretty hard to find a park at the supermarket too.

Footie day? Hot dogs and pies and tomato sauce? Could you describe that a bit for this untraveled North American?

Oh, and Happy Five to your daughter! I have one who is five also.
