Yesterday Edie turned 3! She has been talking and talking and talking about when she'd be 3, and I don't think she was disappointed: pure joy all day long. I wasn't sure exactly what we would do for the party, but everything came together the two days before - I work better that way anyway. It was a really fun party and I think all the kids had a great time. I even heard one 6 year old say it was the funnest birthday party ever! That sounds successful to me :)
Helping me make cupcakes [from a box, glad I wasn't ambitious here]:
Vera was excited to help decorate too - I saw her even straightening all the chairs outside on her own :)
I found the little crown I made for her 1st birthday. She wore it just long enough to take a picture, though not a decent one...
Here's where I said, no! show me a princessy smile:
I just found these from her 1st birthday party - so cute and tiny! I'm all sad now missing Utah :(
I wanted to do some sort of messy cooking-like activity because that is what Edie loves. I bought mini chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, sprinkles, gummi starts and icing pens for them to decorate. I put one drop of food coloring with their frosting so they could mix it up - everyone thought this was incredibly fun!! I really wish I'd taken pictures of their cupcakes, they turned out so cute.
