Last Friday we had Alexa's 3rd birthday party. He request was: Princess. I saw it coming a mile away so I was way ahead of her and had already been planning. Alexa had SO much fun and it was cool watching her get into the whole birthday thing. She waited for her guests, actually opened her own presents this year and was straight up giddy when everyone sang Happy Birthday to her...it was great! We had a lot of friends and family missing though because of being sick which was a bummer, but we still had an awesome time!
We kept changing the menu and at the last minute we decided on hamburgers and hot dogs. Of course it ended up raining so poor Matt had to grill out on the wet deck. Don't feel too bad for him though, I think he secretly liked it...any reason to wear his "duck camo" makes him happy.
Alexa could not wait to open her presents, and somehow people seemed to know that she loved Princesses so we had a living room full of princess stuff. :) She was so cute, she kept handing me the cards saying "Who's this one from? Can I open it now?" She's so spoiled by her grandparents and aunts and uncles!
One present was a trunk full dress up clothes so after she was done opening gifts there was lots of princesses running around. Even Braden joined in the fun thanks to his Auntie Lisa.
Alexa was so unbelievably excited about her cake that she picked out. She could not stop smiling and laughing when we sang to her...she was way too cute.
And of course the Monday morning she woke up and found that her 'balloon fairy' had come and left her lots of pink balloons. She kept saying "My balloon fairy godmother came!"
Happy Birthday Little Princess!!
