Happy Birthday Olivia!

This really should have been Monday's post, considering it was her birthday, but I got distracted. We were actually quite busy all afternoon and evening.

My little girl is 3 years old. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. She's turning into a such a girl. I still think of her as a baby most days, but it's just not true any more, and it makes me want to cry.

We had her birthday party on Sunday with several kids around the same age attending. Before, we've always had family parties with only one or two friends her age attending, but this year only the grandparents were invited for family, the rest were her friends and their mothers. Including Olivia there were 8 children at the party (not counting the two babies that didn't really participate, Rachel and another baby just 2 months old.)

Here are a few pictures from the day, including the Max cake that I made.(from the Nick Jr. cartoon Max & Ruby) I've included the picture I worked from so those of you who don't know what Max is supposed to look like can see that too. ( Just realized as I uploaded this picture that I forgot to add max's Whiskers to the cake. I realize that's probably what was bothering me all this time about how it looked.)

Here's Olivia waiting for me to relight her candle so she can blow it out. As soon as I reached the table as we were singing Happy Birthday, Jenna jumped up and blew out her candle before I even had the cake on the table. *lol* I had to relight so Olivia could blow it out.

Here's a picture of Rachel and Grammy.
More pictures to come later. Real life calls...

Hey Christine. Happy Birthday to Olivia even though I am a week late.
I was interested in trying out that torrent site that you were telling me about. I don't know what it takes to invite someone. You can email me anytime you get around to it at and let me know what to do.
Talk to you later.
