After dinner, we added even more sugar to the day with some cake. We forgot to buy the candles and a professional cake decorator I am not, but the cake tasted pretty yummy anyway.
And, of course, what 3-year old's birthday would be complete without presents?!
Aubrey was pretty sad at the end of the night that her birthday was over and asked if we could do it again the next day. We explained her birthday is only once a year, but luckily for her she gets to extend her birthday another week because her party is scheduled for February 4th due to Mason's arrival. She is so excited to be having a birthday party and asks everyday if its time for her party.
So, my little girl turned 3 and I made it through the day with no tears (at least, not related to her birthday). I'd call that a success because it really is bittersweet to see how much she has grown and blossomed over the past 3 years. My little girl is quite a big girl now and I really couldn't be prouder, even if I do wish she'd slow down on growing just a bit.
