Caroline's 3rd Birthday

Wow - I can't believe she's already three years old! Caroline is growing up quickly. For her birthday this year, we had a modest family celebration at home with just Mommy, Daddy, and Cecilia. She will get to celebrate a little more next week when all the relatives come for Cecilia's baptism.

First, Caroline opened presents. She got a puzzle and a playsilk (pictured below), which she can use for anything from a baby blanket to a skirt to a cape.

The big gift from us was her new comforter for her bed. Her bedroom walls are blue, and we found this pretty comforter at Target... it is mostly purple with some blue in it. Here she is after going into her room to discover her new gift! Her Gran has made a matching valance and throw pillow for her, which she'll bring next week.

Caroline had been telling me that she wanted a cake with "pink sugar icing." She got this phrase from the Winnie-the-Pooh book. So I made strawberry frosting, using some frozen strawberries to get the pink color. Caroline had asked for a chocolate cake. The frosting ended up tasting really good on chocolate cake!

Wearing the birthday hat and getting ready to blow out her three candles... she was very excited! We all enjoyed eating the birthday cake (well, except for Cecilia).

Happy birthday, Caroline!
