Enough Pink to Make a Princess Barf
We celebrated Finley’s 3rd bday a little early, since I had a day off on St. Patty’s Day, which is actually Travis’ birthday! My parents were in town on their way to a ski getaway, so we had Fin’s party while they were here. Poor Travis, he kinda got robbed out of celebrating his 32nd, but you know how he’s a sucker for pink princess stuff, so it was pretty much his party too:) Of all the choices we gave Finley (and we gave her a lot), she picked a balloon entertainer for her party. It worked out well and the balloons she made were incredible, especially the giant Ariel scene she presented to Fin at the end.

Words can’t really do Finley’s outfit justice, so here are some pics. I don’t know how many times she slipped in her heels and/or tripped over her dress. But she insisted even on wearing them to nap that day.
Happy 32nd to my guy too. Next year I plan to celebrate it with him in Chicago, where they dye the river green on his special day!

We hung it from the banister – pretty amazing.

Guess whose sweet tooth motivated him to collect the most candy…no surprise there!
Happy 3rd birthday to my little girl! I can’t believe she turns 3 in just a few days (the 25th). Can you believe at age 3 she weighs 24lbs? She’s quite the petite princess!
