Caitlin's 3!

 The first guest and cousin arrived with Mimi; June bug!

Ok, so last year I was in newborn fog with Owen and did not feel up to doing anything extra especially throwing a birthday party so I didn't! I kind of felt guilty so I wanted this year to be special.  I decided to do a baking party because Caitlin loves to help, cook and eat-winning all around!

When the girls arrived they got a chef hat adorned with their name and little flower and a homemade apron.
! Now these aprons seemed like a great idea until I started making them-they took FOREVER! I am happy with the way they turned out and they looked so cute on the girls so it was worth it!

They each got pizza dough to flatten and mold and then got to put their own toppings. 

 I just couldn't help myself!

 I had to laugh because Caitlin doesn't like pepperoni's on her pizza but insisted on putting them on.  When her pizza came out of the oven, she immediately said, "I don't like pepperoni's!" and took them off one by one.  Silly girl!

The pizza was so delicious! I think this just  might be a new tradition around here!

 The dough kind of stuck to the table you can see!

Next step, cake decorating! While we were waiting for the pizzas to cook, the girls got to frosting their cake{and licking the frosting of course}

 They were all so into it!

 Handful of sprinkles-on the cake or in the mouth?!         Ta-da! All done! I think she did a great job!

 Oh yeah!

The cakes turned out cute and the girls got to take them home in their very own cake boxes!

I really wanted to get a picture of all 5 girls together and although they all aren't looking every time, I see so much of their personalities and I am happy that Caitlin has such sweet friends! The best part of it for me too is that I am such good friends with their mom's so that makes it special for me too!

 Anna, Caitlin, Anna Kate, Aubree, Gracie

I love Gracie's face-oh my, like she's not sure what to think of this! {yes, it's ok to sit on the ledge!}


silly faces! 
 I think these might be my favorite because their personalities really shine through! 

 Happy Birthday to YOU!
Happy Birthday to YOU!

 Happy Birthday to Caitlin...
 Happy Birthday to YOU!
 Caitlin is pretty shy but I can tell by the look on her face that she was proud to have blown out the candles all by herself!

 I can't believe that she's 3....she kind of seems older than that to Andrew and I! 
We love her to pieces and part of our hearts belong to her!

 Instant tea party!

 It was cute to watch Caitlin and her friends play with the toys Caitlin had opened, they were all so into it!

 We had the party while Carson was at school and he was so excited to be able to decorate his own cake--he was practically beaming!

 What a fun day!
