We can hardly believe our little girl has turned three! She is growing up so fast and sometimes it feels like she could be four or five! She is so smart and is already keeping her Dad and I in line. ;) She is such a great big sis and loves her little brother dearly. And she is the greatest thing in his eyes. We are truly blessed to have such sweet kids.

We hadn't planned to throw Brooklynn a party with friends this year until she started telling us about her Dora party. She talked details even down to the Dora napkins. We couldn't imagine breaking her little heart! So we threw a Dora party and it was a hit! We had Dora landscapes covering two of the walls, a short table set up for kids, tons of Dora decoration and even a Dora cake in the style that my Mom used to make for us kids. What is great about the cake is that Nate decorated it! He did an awesome job, and I was glad that he had a pretty big contribution to make to the party, and it turned out great! There was one close call, though. The night before, we put the cake in the oven to hide from Brooklynn. You know that whole catastrope--you turn the oven on and forget the cake? Well it happened! Except the good news was that the preheating of the oven DIDN'T ruin the cake! It came out looking pretty much the same; just a little melting of frosting in the hair area. No big thing. It was a close call! Nate also did face painting on the kiddos and they loved it. Feliz Cumpleanos, Brooklynn!

The kids had such a good time! I am so sorry Joey and I couldn't be there. I am so thankful to Britt that she gave me a couple hours to sleep. All this new work I have is such an adjustment! I hope they were good for you. I heard Jones was a little difficult and I am very sorry about that.

Thank you so much for inviting them. Great job on the party! And Happy Birthday Brooklynn!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
