3 Times 'Round The Sun.....

The Birthday Girl got to open her prezzies first thing in the morning. We always do it that way. There is no sense in waiting all day. :)

Her Birthday Crown was off in about a minute. She said it was too scratchy.

The first thing she chose to open was the gift form her sister.

I think "Phoebe's Sweater" was the perfect book for her. The knitting projects in the back will be great gifts to knit her for  Christmas. I have "Phoebe's Birthday" on order for her Sister's birthday.

We've chosen to be paper free and wrap our gifts up in muslin or cotton bags. 

She opened the sweater vest I made for her. She put it on right away.

Sweet, sleepy, happy, little angel!

I could not bake her cake without her help! 

She did such a lovely job of mixing and "tasting" the batter (it was egg free).

It may have been a bit over mixed buy eh, who cares! Cake is cake right? And it's even better when you have special help.

Oh! Look at her shining face! She loves to help in the kitchen.

We made an applesauce molasses spice cake. We forgot to add the fresh ginger.

It smelled divine. Every year for her birthday, we bake a spice cake. It's her favorite and it's just right for the changing season. The smell of the baking cake filled our home with the smell of Autumn!

We love this stuff!

She got a " Magical Purple Lavender Scented Birthday Bath."

Trying out the new play silks.

They had fun!

She ran around in the fresh air.

She made sand castles. 

She got dirty!

We made apple vases for her to admire at the dinner table.

She picked a few flowers.

She got all her candles blown out with one breath!

She devoured her cupcake.

It was a very good cake. The carrot curls went perfectly. It was a full day of laughing and playing and just enjoying the important things, with the most important people. It was a good day! Happy Birthday  my sweet, sweet girl! I am so thankful that you are mine!
