Happy Birthday Addison!!

Addison is almost three years old. I can't believe it! Her birthday is on the 17th but we celebrated it on Sunday so her Dad could be there. This year I decided I would make my own birthday cake because I am sick of store-bought cakes. I searched online for an easy one to make and found this one. Addie loves butterflies so it worked out great. I have to say I was pretty happy with the way it turned out
I'll admit that compared to the picture I got off the Internet on how it was supposed to look, mine looks a little like a bunch of kids made it but it tasted good and Adam, Journey and I had a blast making it.
I put Adam and Journey to work blowing up the balloons. Journey thought she would save some time by blowing them all up at once. She was surprised it didn't work!
All of Adam's hot air came in handy for this task. Love you honey!
Addison got a little bit of help from big sis to blow out her candles. She thought that I had made the greatest cake in the world. It was a little sad for me to have to cut it. It was all worth it though!!
Addie looked so pretty in her new dress. We had her take it off to eat some cake and it's a good thing cuz she got green frosting all over herself.
Had to get the princess plates and napkins!
Addie's favorite part was the balloons. She played with them for hours.
I wanted to get Addie her own stroller because she was always bringing hers outside to carry her babies around and it would drive me crazy! She loved it and you'll have to look in a later post to see who she likes to carry around in it.
After she opened this present I regretted buying it! 100 pieces of food for her kitchen. I see this stuff being scattered everywhere for weeks to come!

Starting Over

Well I decided to go through my baby clothes (I already had them pulled out to organize because I knew I was having a girl. haha) just to see if there was anything that I could use for our boy.
I made a huge pile of the girls clothes...
Everything I found that could possibly pass for baby boy clothes fit into this little box! I was pretty picky when it came to my girls. All I bought for them was pink, pink, pink! Even so they were still called boys because they had no hair! Now that they're older they get to help pick out they're own clothes and sure enough it's never pink!
We're excited to start over with this one. I never associated cute with shopping for boy's clothes, but it is. I love looking for blue clothes just as much as I did with pink!
