Look Who's 3!

It's hard to believe it, but it's true!  Our little Alice woke up a 3 year old today!  Here she is, proudly showing off her new number:
Here's Daddy, putting together her big birthday surprise a couple of days before her birthday:
Here's our big girl, helping to prepare dinner the night before her birthday!
On the evening of her big day, she arrived home from school in this birthday "crown" made for her by her teacher, Miss Amy.  She says she wore it all day long.  She was excited to continue to wear it to open her presents from Mommy and Daddy and from her far away loved ones:
3?  or 23?:
She still loves receiving cards... this has been true of her since she was born!:

What is inside this box from Mommy and Daddy?
A green dinosaur, just like she asked for!:
But wait, there's more?  Let's go check it out in the backyard!:
What could be under that lumpy bed sheet?
What is it? What is it?
A new big girl bike!  Woo hoo!
Alice took to the sidewalks immediately:
Unfortunately, it started raining just after Alice opened her bike.  Since it was her birthday, that meant she could bring it inside and ride it around in the house (birthday privileges!):
Here she is, blowing out some birthday candles:

Here are the rest of the photos from the day of Alice's actual birthday, and preparations from this weekend's big birthday party!

  1. What a big girl. I love that she had the privilege of riding her new bike in the house.
