We celebrated Lola's third birthday on Saturday with a party at our home.
It was a wonderful gathering, and Lola enjoyed it greatly. She was the perfect birthday girl.
The theme - which we obviously let her choose herself - was Rapunzel, or more accurately, "Tangled." Lola was thrilled to see the birthday balloons, plates, lip gloss necklaces, etc., all covered with Rapunzel's image. It was cute.
We ordered a cake from our local grocery store. But we asked for a few "tweaks" to make it a little more Rampunzel-ish. It turned out absolutely amazing. I was a little surprised that Lola didn't get sad or upset when we cut up Rapunzel's "princess dress" - but she, of course, was excited to eat the cake.
Amelia even got into the princess spirit a bit, as she got a hair bow and a princess onesie, instead of the dress. I snapped this picture before the party, but by the time the party got underway, Millie was fast asleep and didn't stir again until well after everyone had gone. She is such an easy baby...
It was a great day.
