On Sunday, Miss Violet turned the big 3 years old! Mr. M was working on Dancing With The Stars all day until very late – so it was just us girls together on Violet’s actual birthday…
I let her open one birthday present first thing when she woke up! We did presents one at a time because otherwise, I knew she would get overwhelmed and plus, it’s easier to enjoy them when they are spaced out!
Violet really wanted to go to the park and spend the day with me and her sisters, so that’s what we did! The weather was gorgeous, and the girls had a great time at the playground.
Then, that evening we had our neighbor friends over (6 year old twin boys) for brownie cake – which Violet helped me bake that very morning. It was a hit!
After the party, we Skyped with Grammy (my mom) and Grandma Mimi (my grandma) in Indiana. It was a treat!
Violet said it was the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER! It was really simple – which truthfully is all I could handle this year, being in my third trimester and all!
Sometimes the simple things really are the best – she had a wonderful day and we have continued to celebrate throughout the week. 🙂 It’s good to be three!
