It is hard to believe you are 3 years old today. It truly seems like only a little while ago that we were fostering your sister and got the call that another baby was on the way. When asked if we wanted you I immediately answered "YES!" You arrived a month early and I was caught completely off guard. On the morning of February 1, 2006 your social worker called and asked if we could come pick you up from the hospital NOW. I called your daddy and then rushed to the camper where your Mama C. was living temporarily. We were SO excited!
We went up to your birthmother's room to see you. You were so beautiful. My heart was beating fast and tears of joy came to my eyes. I also felt sadness for your birthmother. She loved you so much, but could not give you the care you needed. We were friendly with her and tried our best to make taking you as easy as possible. She trusted us with you and your sister. She made it known that she wanted you to be with us if you couldn't be with her.
The journey of adopting you was a rollar coaster ride with the ups of being a part of your life and the downs of my fears of having to give you back. The day we adopted you is one of the happiest moments of my life. I was officially...your mommy.
Age 3 finds you very happy. You love to make people laugh, but shy away when too much attention is on you. You love puppies and like to pretend you are one. You have a bit of a temper and give your sisters a hard time. You still suck on your "bappy." You love to cuddle and just lay beside me wrapped in a blanket. Most of all....you are very loved.
Happy Birthday Cutie!
Dr. Hubby brought home a small cake to celebrate Cutie's bday...
She was very excited until we started singing. She melted under the table...
She reminded me of a celebrity hiding from the papparazzi...
She finally got up and blew out her candles...3 times!
We are hoping to thaw out for the "big" puppy themed party on Saturday...

The title/font challenge was to use a catchy phrase for our title and a different font for each word. The word "show" is chipboard covered in stickles.

Manga Dork has complained that she has not been in the Photo of The Day yet.
I have been loving the owl trend. The scrappy stamps and papers are adorable.
This owl was captured on Manga Dork's rear...this long shirt is so cute!

This was my first Hibachi style restaurant experience. Our chef was hilarious. I even caught a flying brocolli in my mouth!

Gretchen returned to Tamra's house for a SAHM pool party (kids invited). Gretchen brought her two furbabies. She even had little life jackets to keep them safe in the pool.
Workaholic Vicki put together a LeTip group in her area...it is for small business owners to get together and make contacts. At this gathering Vicki was given an award from the main office. She took one step and fell on her butt...yes, that is the glass award beside her...looks like she broke the bottom off of it (and almost off herself)!
The ladies (minus Tamra) hopped in a limo and went to Fred Segal.

I have been fighting off the "Back To Reality" blues today (maybe combined with a little PMS). I decided to clean the little ones' room to keep me busy. I cleaned under the beds, went through the toy chest, organized the clothes in the closet. It was so neat. I even got 3/4 of a 39 gallon trash bag ready for Goodwill. Unfortunately this is NOT the before picture...it is the AFTER! I could have passed out! I went to check the computer and exhale after a job well done and left them alone watching Spongebob! What can I say...they are gifted...LOL!
This is SO weird! Does your kid's grandparents bath/shower with them? I am sure this could be considered torture by most people...LOL!
We weren't home 10 minutes before we were exposed to the CRAZY and STUPID...argh! Welcome back! LOL!
