Has it been three years?!

Three years ago this little bundle of joy was born!
These are just some of my favorite pictures I threw on here for your entertainment.

Nice, that's what my belly looks like right now, only that's not as cute for some reason.

Reese's first birthday party that I will never be able to beat, but oh well.

Already a sox fan.

On to the main festivities, these pics are kind of out of order, hey that's what happens when you try to blog and nurse at the same time. :)
We had a fairy-tale themed party. I believe birthdays are important, so I like to go a little big. I know it's probably not as cool as I think it is when I do things like this. But Reese liked it and that's what matters right? I decided the goal is not to top the last party (because that's impossible) but to just make sure they think it's fun.
Rylee was in on the fun as well!
Reese got a sandbox, which I may have bullied Jeremy into letting me buy. But she loves it (like I knew she would,) and had to get right in. Plus it has a lid to keep out the animals.
She did have a princess dress on at first, but it didn't make it.

I've been a little busy and could have not done a party, but Reese turned to me and said "mama thank you so much for my beautiful birthday!" Hello! that is why I do party's I don't care how busy you are! That makes it worth it, she knows I love her now!

All the little ladies in their princess dresses.

I love this picture.

I had plans to make a castle cake myself, and show off my wicked awesome cake decorating skills, but my friend who's cake pans I was going to borrow, was in the hospital, so needless to say I wasn't going to bug her about her cake pans. So Lee's bakery came to the rescue yet again! With almost no notice they whipped out this bad boy, and I thought they did really good!
You have to have a dragon, outside the castle. But of course it was a nice dragon, we had to clarify that right away!
Thanks to family for coming over, I think it was a good party, and Reese seemed to love it! And I can't believe she's three!

Your dragon definitely looks friendly. What a cute party! After Anna's birthday she looked at me and said, 'This is the best birthday EVER!'. So sweet. Gotta love kids. Well I think all of your parties have been quite awesome, but if you ever want someone who understands, ask Lacie about Bradee's first birthday party. She will never top that one. lol. Seriously.

Katie she is a cutie! You always have the cutest ideas, I love the princess party! So fun. Time flies with children, I can't believe my little guy will be 3 as well in August!

I can't believe she is 3 either. Time really does go by so fast. It was fun to see you guys today at the little Easter egg hunt. I wondered if you guys would be there or not? Jeremy found us and showed us your cute little Rylee. She is such a doll it made me want another baby just for 3 seconds and then I was over it:) Did you get some cute pics with the Easter bunny? We were saying how we need to get together and have a bbq and let the kids play on your blow up slide:) I asked Jeremy if the slide was really for him:)

That looks like such a fun party!! You do such a good job with parties! I made that cake for my niece last year, way cute cake! Jayden wants a castle cake too. We'll see what I end up doing. I bought a different castle for Jayden.. Just not sure how to do it yet. She will be having a princess party too. That is funny. Our girls are on the same interest scale I guess. You might have to be my birthday party planner!!!
