Three Years Old!

Tommy and Ellie turned 3 this past Wednesday, and we celebrated with family.
On Saturday, Uncle Doug and Aunt Sara came to visit.
Doug had a fun time blowing up some balloons for us.

While Sara played at the water table.

We enjoyed some bubbles.

Tommy jumped on the trampoline.

Ellie woke up in the wee hours of the morning on her birthday to torture Aunt Sandy, who had been up decorating her cake until midnight.  She crashed on the couch shortly before her party started and didn't wake up even when all of the guests arrived.

Tommy fell asleep too as the party began.
Aunt Lindy arrived with cousins Emma, Ethan, and Phoebe

See what I mean?  Phoebe nudged her a few times, but no response.
At least Papa is looking ready to play.
So is Grandma Lux.

Tommy, looking cool in the new shades and hat from Grandma & Grandpa Selvage.

Phoebe became Ellie's gift opening helper. I swiped her new tiara.

She swiped it back. It went well with her new sunglasses.

A week or so ago, I caught Ellie trying to jump rope with one of our dog's leashes, so I thought she might be getting ready for the real thing. Phoebe provided instruction.

Oh how I wish this really cut grass, because Tommy loved pushing it around.
I suppose maybe the bubbles at least clean the grass.
We did some finger painting for fun.

And hung the artwork on the fence to dry.
Unfortunately it rained before that happened, so we lost our art.

But not before Phoebe...

...and Emma posed with their favorite designs.

Pinata time!

Then we finished with cake and ice cream.

They are getting so grown up!  Hard to believe it has been three years already!


  1. Happy Birthday Tommy and Ellie! Looks like a fun party and I love the matching shirts! I can't believe it's been 3yrs either!

  2. So cute, saw those shades Sunday! I hope we get to the park on Monday. So sorry for the bad weather call.

  3. Yeah, it goes by too, too fast! It looked like a rip roarin' time! The cake was amazing! That took some real talent. Their shirts were cute! Grady loves "George" (that's what he calls him.) I'm glad they woke up for the festivities! Grady loves his little lawn mower, too! Happy birthday Tommy and Ellie! Wow, they're going to start Primary next year? Crazy!


If you've been here for a visit, I'd love to know, even if you just say hi!
