Happy Birthday Iris!

Today is Iris Mae's 3rd birthday. It is hard to believe that it's been 3 years since she came into and changed our lives. She is so much fun. Here are some of the things she is excited about at 3:
Pretty much anything girly
The Alphabet
Playing outside
Her daddy
Baby dolls
Her friend, Zoe
Any Disney movie
Talking on the phone
Playing games on Daddy's phone

Some of my favorite Iris sayings:
"Mom, my belly is hungry."
When asked her name, her response,"Princess Iris Big Girl Giraffe."
When asked how much she loves dad or anyone, her response, "Huge!"
"Smarshmellows" aka marshmallows
"Cinnewewa" aka Cinderella
"I love (fill in the blank)" whenever she see something that she likes or even when asking what something is this is how the conversation goes:
Iris: "What's that?"
Me: "Paprika."
Iris: "I love Popricka."
She loves Everything!

We had her birthday party on the 28th. It was supposed to rain (that would make 3 years in a row of rain on the day of her party.) But luckily we had nice weather and had a wonderful bbq with some family and friends. She wanted pink and princess for her cake so this is what I decided to do. I actually didn't make a cake. It's Rice Krispie Treats covered with some frosting and marshmallow fondant. It was surprisingly easy to make and actually edible, unlike real fondant. She was so excited while I was making it. She kept saying,"Ooooo, Mom!" I gave her some fondant to play with while I worked on the cake. She was loving it. It actually turned out pretty cute. Just don't look too close!

I also made some cupcakes for the guests. I piped white chocolate into different shapes like hearts and crowns and stars then sprinkled them with sprinkles. Made strawberry cupcakes (pink) with cream cheese frosting and topped them with the chocolate shapes.

All the other pictures of the actual party on the other camera so I will get those on the computer and posted on here soon. I realized that I didn't post any pictures of her 2nd birthday so I wanted to make sure and get them on this year. 

She is such a special little girl and I feel so blessed to be her mom.

Happy Birthday Iris!!
