Maebh’s 6th Birthday!

Hard to believe our “baby” has just turned SIX!

Soren and Nils picked her up a 6 button to wear at school today along with a giant #6.  Well it’s actually a 9 but they didn’t have a pink 6 so Nils improvised but it works.

So this is what is greeting her this am when she comes down for breakfast!

In the box is a pink Unicorn Stretchkin!  She’s been asking for one for a LONG time!






Then after school – first thing the kids do is play with the ‘new’ thing.

Then after Irish Dancing, we baked a cake together which she totally designed.

Then when it came time to eat this giant pile of sugar – we couldn’t find a lighter nor matches. LOL so Soren and Nils visited the neighbor who, as always, was able to help.




We are still working out her party but we might have a visit from Pake & Beppe too so that would be nice for her!

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
