~ THE BIRTH"CAKE" CELEBRATIONS BEGIN ~

This is Mia's very last day of being a 3 year old! We've already started with the celebrating ~ yesterday we had my family over for dinner, cake & presents. Mia was just glowing and beyond excited . . . I am loving this age - she really understands what it's all about - she's having a great time :)

busting with excited!
Mia kept saying "I the birth"cake" girl !!"
(it is birth"cake" for her, not birthday - I love it!)
Opening presents with her cousins and brothers

Mia's all about the cupcakes this year ~
I found this cupcake mold at W*lmart, not realizing it was an info-mercial...
I scooped ice cream into the middle - which melted a bit and seeped out the bottom
BUT it was still cute and very yummy!

loving her new skooter!

My mom made me this birthday cake (Mia and I share a Feb bday)
with my grandmothers recipe for yellow cake and chocolate cocoa icing...
just tasting it reminded me so much of my wonderful grandmother ~ she was the BEST!
*The silly little carousel is a family joke - when my oldest brother turned one year old ~ he had this huge carousel cake; and I always tease my parents because in my pictures I had a small, regular cake for my first bday...second child syndrome?!
My mom found this carousel -
it was a Christmas decoration and popped it atop my cake when I wasn't looking :)
very funny mom!
"Happy birthday to you!"

Tomorrow my princess will turn 4 years old!
It will be her 3rd birthday home with us
amazing:)
