I know it is cliche but it is REALLY, REALLY hard to believe that Charlotte is three! Three!!! How can that be?? Two - maybe. But three??
We kicked off the day early! My plan was to blow up a bunch of balloons and put them in her room as a little surprise. But at 5:30 am, as I started blowing up the first balloon, I could hear both girls chatting with each other!! They share a room so this is expected...but 5:30!??! How could they possibly be awake?! I blew up about 10 balloons in about five minutes and made myself terribly light headed in the process. Obviously, I couldn't sneak them into their bedroom but I did manage to get them on the landing about 15 seconds before they came bounding downstairs demanding breakfast.
Followed by being on TV!!
Then we went about our business - gymnastics, Costco, grocery store...but we did make a stop at Red Robin for a special birthday lunch!
Charlotte picked out a special birthday cake...
and we ended the day with dinner and a present from Mommy and Daddy.
Charlotte was excited to turn three
but not as excited as Grace was for Charlotte to turn three...nonstop chatter!
It was a sweet day.
A simple day.
A great day.
Happy Birthday my sweet Charlotte Katherine!
To many, many more!
