So, it happened, my girl turned 3! On her actual Birthday she missed school in the morning because of the snow (see the previous post) and then got sick that night. Darn winter Birthdays. My own Birthday was always marked by either snow or sickness. We did make the most of the day, however.
That morning I made her a cinnamon rolls (Pillsbury) with pink and purple sprinkles and then she opened up her Birthday gifts. She went with me to run errands for her party, that ended up being postponed. Then we picked up Adam to have lunch at Chick-Fil-A. She had fallen asleep in the car on the way there- that should have been my first clue. Adam went to work afterward. We spent the afternoon relaxing and playing with the new toys. That night she and I went to dinner at this fun local bakery/cafe called Madhatters. The kids' meals include a build your own cupcake dessert. They bring out a plain cupcake, a piping bag full of icing, and sprinkles. I realized she was sick during dinner. These pics aren't the best, but I had to have some of her on her actual 3rd Birthday. The little doll you see is named Minty Mindy. She turns into a cupcake: her skirt folds up around her and she has a little hard hat that looks like icing. It was one of those cheap finds at T.J. Maxx that is a hit- gotta love that!
