Miss A turned three on Sunday! The day started off great. Mr Dad got up early to run out and grab some wrapping paper, since I ran out the night before, and he quickly finished wrapping her presents. Then we went in to wake her up, and she lept up out of bed and hugged us both…we said “Happy Birthday Miss A!” and she said, “YAY, I’m THREE!”
So we headed out to the living room, and the first thing she noticed was that I had replaced the cover on her PBK Anywhere Chair…and said, “Ooh, Mommy, did you got me a new chair?” The old one had been stained, faded, colored on and torn and it broke my heart. She got it for her first birthday and it was sad to have to say goodbye to it (well, I guess we’re not saying “goodbye”… I’m saving it as a “spare”…) but she LOVES her new one!
Then she got right to opening her other presents. I think her favorite is her Disney Princess scooter, though! Good call by Mr Dad, who picked that out for her.
We took a trip to the park in the afternoon for her third birthday photos.
Finally, we went to a barbeque for the parents of kids 4 and under from our church. It was SO much fun! The kids were all running around, splashing in the wading pool, swinging, and generally entertaining each other so the adults could sit and chat.
We brought a cake for Miss A to the barbeque that should pretty much have wound up on Cake Wrecks. The guy at the bakery wrote what was asked him too, and then he was like…”I’m not as good as the ladies, but will this do?” At that point, we were glad for ANY cake. You see, Mr Dad had stayed up until 2 AM trying to make her a cake. He burned the first one, so he switched to cupcakes and made a second batch. The cupcakes looked AMAZING, but when we opened them the next morning to decorate them, the inside of the container had turned into ant city. Not cool. But hey, at least we had cake!
Miss A had such a blast that by the time we got home, she was sound asleep…
She had such a wonderful birthday! I am so proud of her.
