What a day! Our sweet Evelyn turned 3 yesterday and I did all I could to ensure a fun filled day for her :) I set-up her presents in the front room the night before, so the first thing she saw as she started tip toeing down the stairs was a pile of goodies! Popping on her birthday crown (which I made out of a toilet paper roll,haha) she went to town unwrapping...
It was a very fun indeed, followed by blueberry pancakes that Daddy made especially for our blueberry lovin' baby, er, big girl ;) After presents and breakfast, we met up with Evelyn's friend Betty at a nearby park and they had a BLAST zooming around the jungle gym area,sliding and of course swinging. Betty has been celebrating Evelyn's birthday with her since they were both 1, so its very special to see them still playing,growing up together. Next came naptime (to my relief) and on continued the festivities...
Evelyn woke up to balloons,flowers, and a cake needing to be baked! She helped me mix everything together , and once baked, she helped me stick kiwis all around it. The cake turned out to be DELICIOUS! afterwards the girlies vegged out on the couch,watching Little Nemo as I whipped up a broccoli cheddar bake for dinner.
It was such a fun day,filled with all kinds of things Evelyn loves. I just feel so proud and happy to be this little girl's mommy. She's the sweetest,most empathetic child I've ever met and it amazes me to see her blossom into such a caring individual.
i'm gonna go give her a big 'ole kiss
