This little princess just had her third birthday this past weekend. It's really hard to believe that my little baby is getting so big! I tell her all the time that she's my baby and she just laughs and says that she's a big girl. How we love this little girl! We love her mischievousness, sass, and all the fun that she brings to our family. She's my comic relief and just about the funniest/nuttiest kid I've met. We're so glad she's part of our family!

All ready for church on her birthday, complete with a birthday crown. She proudly wore it all day. :)

Opening one of her favorite presents. She loves her Frozen microphone... I think it might need to have an early death.

More presents.

Another favorite present.

A princess cake for my princess. She loved it which I guess makes it worth all the time and effort it took. Any guesses as to what princess it is? ;)

 Success! She loved her cake and even understood how to blowout the candles this year.

Playing the Waiting Game

Here's a little bit of what we've been doing while we've been playing the waiting game. I'm so done and this baby needs to make an appearance soon. (Three weeks from tomorrow I'll be induced, so at least there's an end in sight!)

Grace was the only kid that finished her dinner one night, so she got to pick a treat... popcorn and a movie. Love her lounging position!

This kid is so excited for the new Star Wars movie to come out.

The kids have made their Christmas lists! We had to get it done earlier this year since baby is coming really soon.

This little girl and her puzzles. She sits down and does 50 piece puzzles by herself; it may take awhile, but she doesn't give up. And that tongue of hers!

Someone had a birthday! I was too lazy (i.e. tired and pregnant) to make my own dessert so we opted for pre-made ice cream cupcakes.

I think it's safe to say that everyone enjoyed the ice cream cupcakes.

Especially this little girl... who had bright pink frosting everywhere!

Snacks for preschool - turkeys!

I got to help out on Cayden's field trip last week. I think he enjoyed having me there. He chose to sit by me instead of friends and willingly held my hand everywhere we walked. I know it's only a matter of time before he hits the "too cool for mom" stage, but until he does I'll enjoy all the sweetness I can get.

Goofy second graders having fun at the Denver Art Museum.

Family bike rides! Cayden has gotten really good at riding his bike this past year (thank you vision therapy!) and the girls have always been naturals. I think both of the girls are going to need bigger bikes next summer.
