A Very Special 3rd Birthday

As mentioned before, our oldest turned 3 yesterday!!
My husband and I were talking about how crazy that seems to us right now....we have a 3 year old! What?! 

She is a sweetie and very smart. We are so blessed to have been chosen as her parents and each day we all learn something new about parenting and life in general. 

Here are some photos I was able to take of our day. Like I said before, it was a small party, just the 4 of us (or 5 if you count the dog).  :)

I just love the picture above! Our youngest's big bright/wide eyes looking like they are up to no good and our oldest's cute she is trying to hard because she is working in cahoots with her sister. 
Sorry about our little one's hair there...I always put it up in a pony tail because her hair is just so dang long and it gets in her face all the time. But I forgot to put it up in a pony tail that day.

Big girl opening all her presents up! 
And of course her little sister has to help out in some way as well by opening presents herself. Thankfully our oldest didn't seem to mind too much. ;)


Haha....Look at that smile! What a cutie!
She loves being a cowgirl...well, she actually tells people she is a cowboy so there's a bit of confusion there. We are workin' on it!
It is funny because she will go up to kids on the playground (some she knows and some she doesn't) and just tell them in a loud voice, "Hey! Guess what? I'm a cowboy...yeehaw!!" 
And I am not joking about that...she actually says that to other kids so this outfit from her grandparents is totally appropriate!

I think we got to work on how to properly put on a cowboy hat. She is 3, what more do you want?! :)

And the many faces of our little one.
She is quite the charmer that one!

I am not sure what was happening in this picture above.
If my memory serves me correctly, I think it was a mini-meltdown she had because her sister was putting the top onto the lego box and that was not OK.
We got over it though and moved on thankfully. :)

And the cake was a hit!
Our beautiful princess told us she wanted a chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, graham crackers, and strawberries.
She has great taste I must say!


It was a fun day and we shared many great memories!
Happy birthday Tess love!
We love you so much and are blessed to have shared this day with you.
Happy 3rd birthday!
