the big 0-3...

It was ALL animals for this year's birthday! (remember a certain someone saying she wanted piglets and a giraffe on her cake months ago?) Today was finally THE day!

So collect the stuffed animals from around the house to watch. Put out animal napkins from the dollar store. :) (I'm a real big spender on birthday parties...)

Add in an animal cake that Nanny made.

Decorate the room with free (or dollar store) animal decor. :) (we printed off free coloring pages of animals online, colored them, & then taped them to the glass door.)

Finish with a super-excited birthday girl dressed like a zebra.

And we're ready to go!

Put the number on the door!

Bring in the family from all over the country!

Lights, camera, ACTION! (this child must be THE most photographed in the world, we're convinced...)

At LAST! The moment I've been waiting for! "Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you..."

I knew EXACTLY what came next. (Blow!)


Open presents...

...and more presents!

Have a fun, family dance party...

and finish off the evening watching our birth/adoption video. (Mommy Megan, we are SO thankful for you! Love you!)

Finally, guys! I'm 3!!!!
