my girl

Today was Marianna's third birthday. My baby girl is now my big girl, and even though the time has gone so quickly, I can't really remember what it was like before she was in my life. Marianna is funny, crazy, loving, opinionated, dramatic, playful, helpful, strong-willed, and fun loving, and I have enjoyed every single day I have had to be her mom.I am so crazy about her it would be silly to try and put into words what she is to me, but everyone who has one knows what it's like. She's just my girl.


We went with a princess theme-shocker-and I was able to throw my first "real" birthday party...a bippity boppity boutique, a poison apple scavenger hunt, pass the magic slipper, bella bella dancerella, and other full-blown three year old girl activities. Thank you to all of our wonderful friends and family who helped make it such a happy birthday!

What a great birthday party!! I bet she was on top of the world!! She's a beautiful little girl! I know how you feel, it's so hard to put into words what they mean to us because simple words are just not enough!
Thanks for sharing her party with us. You are a very creative mommy!!

Happy Birthday Marianna!!! Your party looks like it was wonderful and so much fun. And you are so right Angie, there are not sufficient words to describe the love we have for our kids. It is an inside job of the heart:) She is growing up so good!! I love you Angie.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

I LOVE hearing about girl parties!!! We only got to experience a few, the 5 years our niece lived with us, but I had so much fun! Now the boy parties I really got into as well . . . if you ever want any ideas, I'd be glad to share some of my favorites :)
Happy Happy Birthday Marianna!

I am catching up in the bloggy world this weekend. I didn't realize that Marianna was just turning 3 ~ a month younger than my two. Hope she had a great day!!! Happy belated birthday!
