Whenever my daughter’s birthday rolls around, I get all nostalgic about the day she was born. I replay over and over again what I was doing/feeling/thinking at the time. This year I am remembering what I was doing FOUR YEARS ago at this time. Whaaaat?! I can hardly believe it.
And because I was thinking of that, I started thinking of my blog and how I never shared a post from her rootin’ tootin’ third birthday party last year.
I haven’t blogged in awhile for a couple reasons, but one was that I was so sick from morning sickness much of last year and that included the time over her third birthday.
This was the first year that I could ask her what theme she wanted, and she chose “Jessie” the cowgirl from Toy Story.
I did manage to whip up a quick invitation for the few family members that we had over.
The graphic designer in me, just HAD to design something!
And cupcakes were baked, of course. Barely. I opted for store bought frosting because although it felt so good to be in the kitchen and baking again, I was still pretty weak, and homemade cupcakes were about all I could muster.
Ok, and little fondant cowgirl hats. (I’m not good at taking it easy!) Which, unfortunately, were pink, because you have to add like a TON of red food coloring and that was just way too much work. (And yucky, but I’m not big into eating fondant decorations anyways.)
This year, for her Frozen themed 4th birthday party, I’m pretty excited over how her Elsa dress cupcake cake turned out. I’ll try not to wait a year to post that one. ;) But in the meantime, enjoy the posts of her first and second birthday parties.
