Today we celebrate the magic of turning 3….how independent they become when they turn that landmark age. Yesterday was full of gingerbread house decorating with aunts, grandmas, siblings, and cousins. We ate mint chocolate chip ice cream cake as requested by the birthday girl. My first time making an ice cream cake! Messy to make, but so delicious when it was finished.

This girl is so fun, not to mention funny. She is nothing like I thought she would be when she was brought into this world. I thought she was going to be my meek and mild one. Ha, the very opposite in fact. Sassy, witty, carefree, stubborn, determined, and the list goes on.  Not a day goes by that she does not make us laugh with her crazy sense of humor. Happy Birthday Birdie!
