Addy's Birthday in Pictures


Happy Third Birthday to my Dearest Adelaide Rose. 

Birthday Timeline

1. Night before the big day, the mister and I pitched the tent and decked it out in pillows.

2. Birthday morning, the mister snuck into Addy's room covered her in a blanket so she couldn't see the tent, and whisked her out of the house for a breakfast date with Daddy. (I snuck a kiss under the blanket. She told me she was "cited to get home and see her prizes!")

3. Daddy and Addy return to a Birthday Tent Extravaganza! Loads of smiles and questions (How did you make this? Where did the tent come from? Is this for MY birthday?)

4. Presents and kisses.

5. Picnic Lunch in the tent: Homemade Pigs-in-a-blanket, snap peas, Carol's Angel Eggs (Addy ate over half the eggs and snap peas by herself. Crazy!)

6. Tent transplanted to girl's room for some play time.

7. Candles, cake, and singing.

8. NAP TIME. Hallelujah!

9. Trip to Molly's house for another birthday party. 

10. Late night, fast to bed, sweet girls making us smile ear-to-ear. 

A very good day.


  1. You made the most perfect 3rd birthday ;o) Can you come do my 34th just the same? LOL!

    1. Ahhh. Deb, that was super sweet! Thanks! I had mucho help from my mister and Lily. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to come throw you a party! Mostly, so I could see you and give you a big squeeze, and tell you to your face what a dear friend you have always been. So much so, that I can't make pancakes without thinking of you and having a strange urge to watch the Godfather. Love you. sister!

  2. Happy Birthday, sweet Adelaide! I've been thinking about you all week! Wishing you all the very best, we miss you and love you :). Good job, Lydia!

    1. We miss you too, Leila! Just talked about you last night with the Trevits. They were asking about your inside baby. Made me miss ya even more! Love you!

  3. AWWWWWWW! Absolutely perfect day! Love & miss you all SO much! Extra hugs for the birthday girl! xoxoxoxo

  4. You guys are so inspiring, as always, and you know how to make something special! HB, Addy!
