K turned 3 and it was such a fun day to see her say over and over "it's my birthday!" And she really milked it, for about 3 days it was her birthday. In our house when it is you birthday you get to pick everything you eat and do for the day. Our day started with "cakes," translation crepes with syrup made by daddy. Then we had a tea party with a Cinderella cake in PINK!!!!! After a nap we headed to Reno for some errands and dinner at "grilled cheese macaroni" translation Macaroni Grill.
Crepes and a side of bacon for breakfast. Why do children always think the table top is an extension of their plate?

Our menu: Honey Tea Sandwiches, Pumpkin Sandwiches with Orange Cream Cheese
Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Salad
Raspberry White Chocolate Scones
Fresh Veggie Plate
Fresh Fall Apples
Jigglers (I forgot to serve)
Table Treats: Pink Jelly Bellies & Circus Animal Cookies
Tea: Peppermint, Apricot & Bengal Spice
Tea Party with friends. We invited 2 families, we all have 4 children, so it was a crowd at the tea table. Many of the fellas had never been to a tea party before but I think they were all happy with the food.
Opening a present from a friend--it was a very fancy nightgown, her first one.
K wanted a Cinderella cake and I thought "I'm gonna have to find something to put on the top of a regular cake because I don't want to have to carve one." We had a candle from a previous Cinderella fest and that is all she wanted on her PINK! cake.

And did I mention the GIANT piece of chocolate cake everyone gets on their birthday at Macaroni Grill, with real hot fudge.
Daddy and K at "grilled cheese macaroni." Yes, she ordered macaroni and cheese followed by "i-cream."
I think is was a Happy Birthday for the sweetness.
