Kate Turns 3!

Kate turned 3 today!!!  I took the day off work and we celebrated with a "Girls Day Out"!  So much fun...

So happy it's her big day...
I love my girls....
Birthday picture with Patty...their favorite babysitter!!
Off to McDonald's for breakfast!!  Unfortunately, Ava was under the weather, so we had to drop her off at home after we ate:-(  But it turned out to be some awesome alone time for me with Kate and reminded me that I need to do things like this with each girl once in a while.  Mommy/daughter time is good!
Build a Bear!  This was so adorable.  One cute thing to note...after picking out her own bear, Katelyn looked up at me and sweetly said..."we have to pick one for Ava."  I love that she was thinking of her sister...so we built Ava one too. Katelyn had a ball..they made the birthday girl feel so special!!
stuffing the bear...
Giving her bear a heart...she had to warm it up, jump up and down, give it a kiss and hug it before she put it in the stuffed animals:-)
Fluffing her bear...
She picked out nothing other than...a Sleeping Beauty outfit for her bear and a Little Mermaid outfit for Ava's bunny.  She named her bear "Sleeping Beauty":-)  Can you tell someone is obsessed?  The end result...one happy birthday girl!
Next stop...lunch!  Katelyn wanted a turkey, cheese and pickle sandwich from Subway...
Later that night Doug & I had a pizza cook-off (I won), and invited Grandma & Grandpa, Uncle Rob, Aunt Carly and Jet-Jet over.  Ava was happy to have her sis home again!!
Funfetti cake...Kate loves her sprinkles!
At 4, other people's birthdays are sometimes a hard concept to grasp, so we blew out candles twice and  included a bigger sister in the action the second time around...
A great day was had by all!  We love our Kate...she brings so much JOY into our lives with her big smile, exuberant attitude...we love her!  Here's to many more.  One more pic for the road...the girls had fun dressing up their poor little cousin Jet.  With 3 older girl cousins...he's in for some make-overs and princess parties!!  At least he is a good sport:-)
