Happy 3rd Birthday Gabriella!!!!!!!!!

Wow, it's hard to believe that our Princesa is three years old today! I definitely feel in some ways it seems like just yesterday we saw her sweet face for the first time in pictures and in other ways, it seems like a lifetime ago!

She had an absolute blast celebrating her birthday with all of her friends at Monkey Joe's today.

She opened some presents at home first....




















With all the craziness and kids everywhere, it was hard to get good pictures at the party and with all the jumping around, many were blurry. But,here are a few.






Her amazing cake. The office manager at our church made this for her. I told her to surprise me with something girly and I finally got to pick it up last night. It was gorgeous!! All of those flowers and letters are made by hand.

OMG, the bday looks great but we don't have a Monkey Joe's around here and the sight of that garish, purple, puppet on steroids monkey almost made me scream out loud. I was NOT expecting a picture of that in the midst of your daughters beauty! Glad to see she had a great time. I'm not knocking Monkey Joe's, I just hate puppets.
