No Longer Babies

While my girls aren't officially 3 till Monday at their birthday party today it was clear that they are no longer babies. Instead of walking toys and Fisher Price they were showered with My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake and dress-up clothes. I think they are officially girls!!

Ready to party:



Eating comes first - though I use the term eating loosely since the girls don't eat much and most of what they ate was Doritos :)



Party guests - mostly family here in Florida but quite a few friends too - so fun to celebrte my three turning three!




From food to cake:



So excited for cake.





Cake faces:







Time for presents:





And time to play.









The girls had a fabulous time celebrating their birthday and playing with their gifts. And didn't you love their shirts? If you missed it they say: "I'm the Birthday Girl, now gimme some cake!" That fits them :) The tutus they picked out themselves and wanted to wear the second I bought them but they were too perfect for today so they had to wait.

My teeny, tiny babies have turned into beautiful individuals who happen to share the same birthday. Three three-year-olds - it's going to be an amazing year!

Happy 3rd Birthday (on Monday) to Julianna Mabel, Rachel Gabrielle and Alyssa Elaine - I'm so glad each of you is in my life!

Kirk and I leave tomorrow for the cruise so we will not be home for their actual birthday and I will be off the blog for a week but I will have tons of pictures to share when I return.

I am so glad they had a good day. Have a great time on your cruise!! You deserve it. And you are right, they are no longer babies. OK, I will stop now as just writing that makes me want to cry.
