"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to His purpose"

Romans 8:28

Three Years Old!

Our 'baby' turned 3 yesterday! 

This is the first year she knew what it meant to have a birthday and wanted to wear her birthday hat.  She knew she was going to be 3 and knew her birthday was in February.  She really wanted.....

... a 'bue buttefly' birthday cake! 

We celebrated on the 16th rather than the 17th as Colin wasn't going to be home yesterday.  He didn't get to see her until 10:00 pm when he came home and was able to give her a kiss on the cheek while she slept.

We made our Wednesday coffee day into a little party for her  and she had such a good time there was no time to nap.

She loved blowing out candles! 

I think we lit it and turned off the lights about eight times, literally.  More to come on Saturday when Aunt Lynne and Uncle Jim come to celebrate with us if she can hold out for 'bue buttefly' cake a bit longer.

Happy Birthday sweet Isla!
We thank God for three wonderful years with you and wish you many, many more blessed birthdays!!

'Til next time,
