Saturday, the 20th of November, we celebrated Natalie-Rose's 3rd birthday, which is today!
Of course I'm going to say that I can't believe how quickly time has flown. Lately, each day is so full of activity that I haven't had time to reflect on how much she has changed.
I was preparing a little slideshow to play during her party and I got stuck looking through her baby pictures. Seems so long ago and yet not so long ago! She truly has become a full member of our family and I can't imagine our family being complete without her! Thanks for this blessing Heavenly Father : )
Here she is after blowing out her candles. Christiana, one of her favorite friends, is next to her.
I saw this idea on the Betty Crocker website. It was a little time consuming, but you don't need special skills to decorate it : )
Minutes before party time!
Taking the baby doll grocery shopping
Maisy and Christiana playing with the doll house
It was nice weather for being out on the porch
Maisy loves doing little detailed things.
A tiny castle with tiny figures inside from Aunt Karen and Uncle Tony.
Gabby gave Natalie a baby doll and a handmade pillow
A pink van with building blocks inside
Candy Land! I think big sister and big brother might play this with her : )
The Fowlers gave her a coloring set and the game Memory
Maisy gave her a beautiful little jewelry box with a beautiful bracelet inside, handpicked by Maisy.
I gave her a wooden cake set that has different toppings and can be cut apart.
Wow! What a baby doll set. She came with all the accessories.
Time for cake! (wooden cake)
Already trying to balance a baby while serving guests.
Maisy is contemplating how she would like the cake to look.
Christi has her baby strapped on and she's off!
Isn't this the sweetest little picture? They all played so well.
And a fun time was had by all! Thanks everyone for coming and for the wonderful gifts!
