It's "Noctober" 4th!!!!!


Last night I had all my family together to celebrate a very special little "Princess'" birthday! "E" is 3 years old today!

There was one gift that had to be opened first, because it was necessary to adorn the contents before the party could begin.

You can't have a Princess Party without Princess jewels!!

Nana made this shirt for "E's" birthday party that she had at Day Care earlier in the day. Is it not precious!!!!

This is a picture of her seated beside all of her "goodies"! My goodness --it looks like Christmas, doesn't it? It's a shame no one loves the little girl, huh?

We decided that we better eat something first because all of us adults were a little famished. We had a nice Fall tablescape.....

And a nice Fall meal....Chicken Chili

There were LOTS of gifts to open and "Mommy" helped with all of them!

Her Uncle Josh and Michelle gave her a Planet Earth DVD game that all of us adults were wanting to play. This should be very educational for ALL of us! I loved the TV series when it was aired.

The one thing that she had told Nana and Bubba that she wanted for her birthday, was a blanket with "Lovie" monogrammed on it for her baby doll, so of course Nana came through! How cute is this? Nana also made matching diapers for her baby doll. Too cute!

One of Mommy's co-workers gave her this precious "gardener stuff". She has garden gloves, straw hat, watering can, etc. She's all set to help me and her Mommy plant some petunias! Thanks, Carrie!

Mommy's boss and his wife gave her this precious book and a dress-up bear puzzle set. Thanks so much Dr. H and Kimberly!

And then...."Mommy" really scored some big points with this microphone that she can hear herself sing through the radio on! Too cool! Now she can sing all the songs she learns at church. Way to go, Mom!

**** Will you look at THAT shirt! Nana made THIS shirt, too! It has "E" with a little tiara and a princess wand. Nana is just too talented!

And it was finally time for the Princess Cake. Mommy's boss, Dr. H, provided the beautiful Princess cake and it was delicious! It had whipped icing and a strawberry filling. YUM!

"E", you have brought so much joy to our entire family. We thank the Lord everyday for giving you to us and I pray that God will grant ALL of your wishes to come true!

"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."
Psalm 37:4
