Olivia's 3rd..


Bright and early we boola-boola the gifts. The theme seems to be purple and pink! A dress-up, matching Barbie (from the new Barbie movie coming out in a week- good times!), Dora water bottle, and a Strawberry Shortcake DVD. Olivia is very content.

Who doesn't love a good visit with a good Grandma? They had a fun time.

I didn't plan on doing a party, since Anika's took enough work..(fun work!), but Olivia kept talking about who was coming to her party the days before so we tossed out a few invites the day before for a low-key, hour-long, sprinkler party.

Something Olivia doesn't do- take naps. I guess all the fun really took a toll! She fell asleep downstairs about 5:30.

We brought her upstairs to wake her and she couldn't handle it and went back to sleep. Her sisters were blowing in her face, poking her, trying to wake her up so they could convince her McDonald's playplace was the destination for dinner (I wholly veto that idea! I can't tolerate the stinky, germy playland and will resist with all my power). Eventually she woke and we settled on sandwiches and playing at the school playground. After all, everyone's bellies were full of treats, especially Olivia's.


Happy Birthday Olivia! You are a sweet, fun girl with a great sense of humor. Just like your Mom!

Happy Birthday Olivia! She is a sweet girl and I'm so glad we were finally able to bond this year. Next year we will have some more fun together. Maybe instead of playing with baby dolls (which don't compare to the real thing, which I already got) we can play Barbies! I never got to play with them when I was a child and I still think it sounds fun.

Can't wait to see where she tries to wear her new dressup.
Happy Birthday Livvers! Sorry Ethan's exciting message got erased (he actually addressed it to Isabelle, so maybe it's best she didn't hear)

The pictures did show an Olivia who enjoyed her birthday. I'm glad it went well -- a good day for a good girl.

I never remember it raining at the parade! It's always hot and muggy. Good thing my Grandpa was one of the first ones to go!

Happy belated bday to Olivia...I was just so caught up in my own celebration to even think others might be having bdays too...
Nice dress-up. Nothing beats pink and purple and barbies for the ultimate little girl fun.
