The morning of my 3rd birthday, I woke up with a smile!

“Is it my birthday?” I asked.

“Yes, it is! You’re three years old today!” Mommy and Daddy beamed down at me.

I smiled up at them.

“May I open my presents now?” I asked with a knowing gleam in my eyes.

“Yes, you may,” they laughed. :)

P1090989

And so I did!!  And boy was I surprised!!

P1090990

Grandma and Grandpa gave me construction vehicles!

P1090997

That were the perfect size for my pinto beans!!!  (And there was even a set for me to use outside, too!)

Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa!!

P1100016

And Scooters gave me an alphabet puzzle train!

P1100037

That was ten feet long!!

Thank you, Scooter-man!!

P1100005

“Hey, you’re welcome!”

P1100008

“Happy Birthday, Big Bro!”

P1100075

And Papa and gg gave me a tent!!

P1100115

That was so easy to use–it just POPS right up!

P1100117

And there was plenty of room for all my new friends!

Thank you, Papa and gg!!

P1100050

Then I got my last present!

P1100051

Oh-ho!!!

P1100052

It was my special friends!!

P1100053

Mommy and Daddy let me pick them out.

P1100057

And then I waited sooo patiently to get them!

P1100058

But now that it’s time to get them…

P1100059

I can hardly believe it’s true!!

P1100060

Emily?   Are you really there???

P1100063

Alfie?  Is that you???

P1100064

And Salty!  I see Salty, too!!

P1100086

Holy smokes!!

P1100095

I can finally play with them!!!

P1100109

*WHOOT! WHOOT!!*

This is fantastic!!!  Thank you, Mommy and Daddy!!

P1100129

After that, Daddy made me my favorite breakfast.

P1100137

SAUSAGE!!  And grits and eggs!!

P1100134

Thank you, Daddy!!

P1100127

You’re so wonderful!! :):)

P1100141

After that, we took a trip to a special, secret surprise that Daddy planned for me!   (That I’ll tell you all about in my NEXT post!)

P1100425

And that afternoon, it was so pretty!

P1100429

That we got to play outside!

Daddy had taken this whole day off from work to be with me and play with me and I loved being with him so much!

P1100434

Then my friends started to come!

P1100446

And we ate food!

P1100452

And Mommy watched me really hard.

P1100454

To see if it was really true that I was three whole years old.

P1100455

And it was!

P1100462

Scooters even got to see his friend, Carter!

P1100485

We played and talked!

P1100473

And laughed!

P1100488

Then I got to open even more presents!

My last official birthday party with friends was when I turned one, so this was the first one for me that I really understood.

P1100489

And I couldn’t believe how kind my friends were!

P1100507

They were so cute and excited to have me open their gifts!

P1100495

And Mommy helped me read their sweet cards!

P1100496

And Daddy watched the Scooter-man. :)

P1100509

It was so fun to see what they all picked out for me!

P1100516

And how eager they were to show them to me!

P1100513

And how eager I was for Mommy to open them for me!

P1100510

And I loved every one of them!

P1100526

And Mommy had to laugh at my little trail. :)

After that, it was time for cake and ice cream!

P1100550

Except.

P1100551

I may or may not have…

P1100552

Taken one of my gifts…

P1100553

And attacked my father and party guests… :):)

P1100563

But then Mommy hid my gun and it was time to eat again!

So Daddy lit the smoky stacks and whistle!

P1100565

And the wind blew out my whistle.

P1100566

And I blew out the smoky stacks! :):)

P1100571

Then we were so patient and waited for our pieces.

P1100574

Mmm-mmm!!!

P1100578

After that, Mommy laughed at my sweet, frozen, glassy-eyed appearance.  I was a bit tired after my fun-filled day. :)

P1100539

Thank you so much, everyone!  I was so excited for my birthday and you all made it such a special day!
