It's hard to believe that I have a three year old now. Man does the time fly!! Abby's official birthday was on Friday and I made our family's traditional birthday cake recipe to celebrate. Both my Mom and Dad grew up with this chocolate chip sponge cake as their family birthday cake, so when they got married and realized they both used the same recipe it seemed only natural that they'd pass it along to us, and now me, to my kids! It's delicious but I'm not even going to tell you what goes into making it...it's NOT healthy and that's what makes it so good.
Hazel's face though! This picture cracks me up!
At Abby's 2nd birthday party she only sort of understood the whole thing. We had to coax her to blow out the candles and she didn't quite understand the whole present thing. This year was a totally different story! Abby will say that she's three if you ask her how old she is and will even hold up 3 fingers to show you. Presents and cake though, she's got that covered!!
Potential boyfriend material? I think so! Isn't he just the cutest?
Abby was FAR too focused on that cupcake than on getting a "ficture" with her parents.
Since her first birthday Ellyn as been buying her her very own birthday cupcake. Last year it had a ladybug on it...this year was a super cute #3 that was decorated to look like Minnie Mouse. Super cute!
We are so thankful for all the friends and family that spent their Sunday with us. We had over 60 people come out for the baptism/birthday bash. There was so much love and support for us, we're one lucky family!!
