Happy Birthday ~ Karley Jane

It sneaks up so quickly, she's three now.  It's a cliche, and so true, the days are long but the years are short.  Three years.

Karley celebrated by having a princess party, a barbie looking princess cake, a lot of cousins and some friends at our home.  Auntie Tonya, Hailey & Hannah came on Friday to spend the whole weekend.  Gram and Grandpa came on Saturday afternoon and the rest of the gang came on Saturday for the party.

A side note:  At the last party Adam asked why I don't just have the cake made?  I have no clue as to why I struggled along with cakes only to have my sister finish them anyway.  So this birthday, we had the cake made.  Was that ever a relief.  Hats off to all those who know how to create such beautiful cakes!  I'm not one.  I'm okay with that.  Such a relief.






A couple of days after her party we went to the local pizza joint for Adam's birthday.  After eating the kids played along with a couple of kids we didn't know.  Karley was very excited to tell the little girl, "I'm three and I got a V Reader for my birthday".  My guess is she really likes the V Reader.  I'm super glad because I want them to love books like I do.


On her actual birthday we went to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner followed by a few rides at Nickelodeon.  They were so cute on the rides, my heart just melted many times over.











Since we already had cake earlier in the week Karley thankfully opted for ice cream cones for all.  We sat at a table ate our ice cream and I just thought about how blessed I am.  Listened to the kids talk, congratulated Karley for naming letters in the store signs, time froze and it was wonderful.  Just sitting as a family eating ice cream as the world goes by.  I am blessed.  God is good.
