Kate Kate Finally Turns 3!

Poor little Kate, she gets the birthday shaft every year. The only year we've celebrated her birthday on her actual birth date was the day she was born. Thank goodness she's still too little to know any better.

I honestly can't believe she's 3. I still consider her such a little baby. I guess that's what happens when you're the baby of the family. In fact, I was thinking about her party and thought, "Oh, I'll just make her some type of cute pink cake. She's too little to know what she'd want." And then I realized that for Halle's 3rd b-day, she INSISTED on a black bat cake. And for Carter's 3rd birthday he demanded Spongebob. My little cousin wanted a vacuum cake for his 3rd birthday. So I realized that she's really not a baby and she probably knows exactly what she wants. Sure enough, when I asked her, she replied, "Pink Cindewella cake." So a pink Cinderella cake it was, and she loved it.




This kid is all about "girl" stuff. Barbies, babies, and dress ups were the main theme of the night and she loved it all.

She had been so excited about it being her "Cindewella party" all day long. But when it finally came time to celebrate she started feeling yucky. She got a really bad headache and kept squeezing her head and laying down. She managed to enjoy opening the presents but then it got too much and she threw up right after the cake. (Apparently she takes after me, poor little thing.)

Poor little girl ended up laying in Grammy's arms for the rest of the night and fell asleep before Mimi showed up with another gift. She didn't even get to open it. But this morning when she woke up, she was good to go and remembered every detail about the party. Even what gifts she got from who. "Halle gived me dis Barbie, and you gived me clothes (and so on)." It was really cute.

they'd run around using two-names for each other. :)
happy b-day kate!

Aw, sweet girl - sick on your birthday! :-(

You're an awesome mom to give her such a fun Cinderwella day. She is a cute princess!

Hope she's feeling better. Thanks for sharing your cute pictures!

Kate is just sweetness personified! Happy Birthday Cutie Pie! I'm glad you got all things pink and Cindewella!

(and was it REALLY that long ago that Halle wanted the black bat cake? I remember that one!!!)

Kate is such a cutie. I was looking back at some of your older posts, and it's amazing how the time has flown. I can't believe she's 3!!! Happy Birthday, Kate!

What a doll face! Too bad she didn't feel so well. I had chicken pox on my 8th birthday (unheard of now days)...being sick is no fun on your special day, but I am glad she got feeling better to wake up to more partying!

So cute!!! Tanner really wants a BWOO (blue) birfday cake - I am not a fan of blue's clues, so any suggestions? I need something with blue - and last year we did Nemo. HMMM. I can't believe how big they're getting!

Happy Birthday Kate Kate! Glad to hear she is feeling better today.

Oh, it makes me CRAZY to think of a 3 year old having to know what a headache is! Poor baby!

Emma is into the girlie things too! How fun!

BTW, I've been meaning to call you. I sent your stuff with Camille. I need to make sure you get it. And PayPal worked just fine.

And, it looks like we'll be coming for Thanksgiving, so I hope we can get together (with the rest of our friends too!). Doesn't look like we'll be coming for the Christmas holiday.

Awwww, sad little face.

Poor Kate! It should be against the rules to be sick on your birthday. At least she seems to have recovered nicely :-)

Kate is so cute!!! I hope that she is feeling better. What a bunner to be sick.

I did not take one picture of my Twilight event night. It was so fun, but I was also not feeling well and was hanging in there to see the movie. I was entertained, it is not going to win any awards but I had a great time. Your group looked like ours, what a fun time it was.....
