Birthday Girl

Staley is officially THREE!!!  Her actual birthday was yesterday.  And how does any 3 year old want to start her birthday?

Sick.  :(

Staley woke up on Saturday morning with a cough, runny nose, and fever.  Although she perked up after some Ibuprofin, instead of celebrating her birthday with Liam at his super hero party, she had to hang out all day at home.  There was still special breakfast, presents, playing with presents, phone calls and texts from special people, family play time, dinner with Grammie and Grandpa, and special ice cream treats.  Despite not feeling well, Staley had a fun day.

Opening presents in PJs and sunglasses?  
I guess that's just what 3 year olds do.

Enjoying some birthday play time with her little sis.

Luckily Staley woke up this morning fever free...and so excited about her birthday party.  Her birthday party theme had been changing consistently, but a few weeks ago she decided she wanted a Barbie horse party and hadn't wavered.  And so, a Barbie horse party she had.

There was a Barbie horse game (courtesy of Uncle Evan),...

Barbie horse food, including...

Barbie pink punch and...

horse brownies and cookies.

There were cousins and friends...

and lots of family.

But, without a doubt, the highlight of the party was a very special guest.

Kracker came to Staley's party (with our friends Libby and Judy)

Nothing can beat birthday party horse rides!!

It sure is good being 3!!!
