My Baby Turned 3

Cora turned 3 on the 1 of September. I can't believe that my youngest is now 3. We were out of town for her birthday, so yesterday we had a little party for her. She wanted everything pink, which is kind-of funny to me because she is such a tomboy. So I worked the theme around a strawberry cake (which she wanted) with pink frosting. So here we are with a Strawberry Shortcake party.

She also asked for her party to be in the garage.

She picked out the food. Creamy noodles (chicken alfredo) with pink fruit (watermelon) and caesar salad.

We also had our first pinata. The kiddos just didn't know what to do with all the candy as it fell out. There was no diving, pushing or fighting with each other. Audrey picked up all the suckers and as the boys were trying to eat the candy, Cora just keep picking up candy and stuffing it in her bag. She was actually shaking her bag to get more candy. Needless to say, I split up the candy a little more fairly.

All in all it was a wonderful party, the kiddos just enjoyed being outside and playing in the rocks and getting all dirty and the adults just enjoy some get fellowship.

My little Cora, your dad and I are so blessed that God gave us you. You are such a delight, a ham, always being silly, tough as nails, but with a very tender heart, precious daughter and we thank God for you.

How'd you like working with the frosting? Did you like the consistency better? I love all the pictures! Cora asking for her birthday to be in the garage was the balance to the all pink party...don't you think!? :-)

I loved working with that fosting. Thanks for the recipe. I do think being in the garage balanced out the pink.
