Sorry for the lack of posting around these parts but we've been terribly sick. So sick in fact that everyone in the house, with the exception of the dogs, was and are still on meds. I came down with Whooping Cough, Christian had Bronchitis, BB had Strep Throat and an Ear Infection and both of my parents had a nasty Cold / Sinus Infection combo. To say that we are eagerly awaiting Summer and non-freezing / Cabin fever inducing weather is an understatement!
In the end, we were well enough to celebrate BB's Birthday this Tuesday (we originally wanted to celebrate it on Sunday but I was still contagious) and we had a lovely time with our family celebrating this bundle of joy's 3rd Birthday. I wanted to have a Wonder Pets themed bday and when we visited Party City this Monday, it turns out they only sell them online. Doh. So we decided to buy WP's colored plates, napkins, etc and just make everything else homemade.
While we were decorating, little BB was watching Little Einsteins for the first time and was completed mesmerized. It was perfect timing and gave us a few toddler free moments to finish decorating.
My dear sweet husband surprised me yet again (he's on a roll this year, isn't he?) and made BB her Birthday cupcakes. What can't this man do? I made some Wonder Pets cupcake picks earlier that morning to help tie the theme together. They came out pretty good for a first try!
We poured some M&M's and Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds into a few plastic cups and snipped out some flowers to accompany a cut out Wonder Pets schoolhouse. Of course BB is playing with it today and I'm happy to report it's still intact!
Since Christian and Vivi love making Geogami's Origami's together (she's more of a silent helper), he made some to string from the fan in the Dining room. She loved it and kept asking him to pick her up so she could spin them.
We had a fantastic time with our family and friends and I'm so happy that our family was here to celebrate with us (not to mention my sister brought delicious cookies!! thank you, love). I still can't believe my baby is 3 years old ... time really does fly! Happy Birthday my dear girl, we love you so much!
