With our 3 girls' birthdays within 7 weeks of each other and with out of town family, it seemed best to have one birthday party for all 3 of them. So that's what we did the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Jason's parents and two Aunts as well as all of my family were able to come celebrate with us. It felt a little bit like Christmas morning - with all the presents - but it was a really fun day!
Yes - I made 3 cakes! (Rachel checking them out.)Emma's cake had dogs on it.Heidi's cake was a "Belle" cake (from Beauty & the Beast).And Rachel's cake was decorated with Miss Patty Cake's apron. (If you're not familiar with Miss Patty Cake and you have little people in your house, check out www.misspattycake.com.) :-)Rachel and her party hat.Great Aunt Shirley with Heidi & Rachel.Emma opening presents with Papa.Grandma and Heidi.Great Gram with Rachel.My grandmother (Great Gram to the girls), who is 95, painted a watercolor print for each of the girls. Each is a different bird. Here is Emma with her bluebird. A special gift to treasure for years to come.Rachel received a Clifford book (and she really enjoys books) as well as a stuffed Clifford - which is now a permanent occupant in her crib.Yes - that is a princess boomerang!!! And it kind of works. ;-)Emma reading with Aunt Susan.Finally, the day of the party was actually my birthday. Heidi couldn't wait to give me their presents. So I got in on the present opening too.As I said, it was a lot like Christmas, but it was a lot of fun! So glad our families could come celebrate our girls with us!
