Party Time

We had Katie's 3rd birthday party on Saturday. She had decided a few months ago that she wanted a Dora party and never wavered on that. Anytime I would ask her what she wanted for her birthday, she would tell me a Dora cake.

We had a nice party here at the house. It was a gorgeous day outside so we brought out the bounce house for the kids and opened up the sandbox. We also brought some balls outside so that the kids could play in the yard. We played a party game, Pin the Bracelet on Dora. Katie wasn't too crazy about the blindfold that we used until she saw other kids using it too.

Then it was time to sing Happy Birthday and cut the cake. Katie got extremely shy when everyone was singing to her. As soon as the singing was over, she put her head up and blew the Dora candle out with one breath. She couldn't wait to eat it either. Shortly after cake, we opened her presents, which was a bit of a whirlwind as it often is with that age group. She got some really cute stuff and was thankful for everything.

Here are a few pictures from the party:

I'm a little late, but yay for an awesome party! Nice work Mom--you deserve a huge pat on the back. Looks like Katie loved all of it. :-)
