Girly-girl birthday party

Three. My youngest is three. It seems like a few days ago that I went in to the hospital to have her. The midwife suggested induction, since Lorelei was a bit late. Thank you, midwife!
And she came into the world easily and quickly. I pushed through 3 contractions,
and out she came.
A beautiful baby with a beautiful soul.
Lorelei's birthday cake
I found the perfect cake for her...we always end up with pounds of leftover cake every birthday, so this small cake with the surrounding cupcakes was just right.

I also found some fun straws...with umbrellas attached. Too bad I didn't have the fixin's for pina coladas.
beautiful profile
Look at that gorgeous profile. We all think our kids are the most beautiful, but I think that her beauty is an empirical fact.
birthday girl and balloon
She changed clothes through the whole party. She received many different dress-up outfits...a rainbow fairy costume complete with wings...a lavender fairy outfit complete with curly-toed lavender slippers...fancy elbow gloves with a ring attached...a flapper purse with Pet Shop Ariel wedding gown complete with veil and HOOP SKIRT...OMG.
My frustrated inner girly-girl was thrilled.

Isabelle was too sweet today. She hugged Lorelei when she opened a particularly great gift...just because she was happy for her little sister. Love it.

Mom Nancy and Swamette

A few of our guests: My Mom, my cousin Nancy, and Swamette.
Cell phone
Lorelei loved her new, jeweled cell phone with matching cell phone purse.
fairy buttcheek
Nothing completes a fairy outfit better than a butt cheek hanging out of it.

Happy Birthday to you...

fairy in Wellies
The only thing that goes better with a fairy costume than a butt cheek is a pair of pink Wellies.
She saw these at Target a few months ago, and was heartbroken when I said no. But she almost wet herself when she opened them.
I am taking the birthday girl to the settling basin tomorrow, with fresh batteries and my temp scope and see if I can snag me some more life ducks.
It's going to be COLD. Winter is here, y'all.

Hmmm, Did Susan just get an advertising visit from Kate?

She truly is a girly-girl and looks like she's in dress-up heaven! The butt-cheek photo is adorable. Happy 3!

We have single-digit wind chills down here. I can't believe it.

Wow! The polar opposite to Gage's birthday party. Where are the pirate swords? Where are the fighting robots and RC cars? Where is the camo birthday cake? :)

Happy birthday to your little fairy and good job Mom to you!

(And, yes, she is beautiful!)
