Happy Birthday Princess Leah!

Leah turned 3 over Memorial Day weekend, so we had a birthday party for her on Saturday at the water park/playground on Eglin AFB. Unfortunately, I got food poisoning Friday night and was still a bit out of it for the party, but midway through it I threw up for the last time and felt MUCH better. Then it was as if Eric and I did a high-five: Eric's turn. Eric went right to bed when we got home and was "not well" through mid-Sunday. We were hoping Leah wouldn't get sick, but Saturday night after I put her to bed, she called me in there and threw up while I was laying down with her. Lovely. Thankfully, she only threw up one other time that night and seemed to have the "best" case of food poisoning among the three of us. All that being said, Leah still had a great time at her party and the next day for her actual birthday. After lunch, we took her to Baskin Robbins for some ice cream...which of course had to be pink! This was the "Year of the Princess". Eric says we should have taken out stock in Disney. Leah now has princess: bedding, bike and helmet, coloring books, nightgowns, dress-up gowns and shoes, clothes, bath mat, purse....seriously I don't think there's a princess "thing" they sell that we don't have. It's sad, really. :)

Enjoying her PINK ice cream with gummy worms...(dressed in a princess outfit of course)

In her Sleeping Beauty gown...

Opening her presents at her party. I think Katherine was having as much fun as Leah. It was so cute...she was helping Leah open her gifts :)

I wanted to make Leah a princess cake and after googling a bit, thought a doll cake would be the easiest. I should have taken a picture of it in the freezer, because at this point the icing was a bit melty...oh well. It tasted good though!
Eric found a sparkler 3 "candle". I don't think the girls thought it was as neat as we did.
I wanted to get a picture of Leah with her cake. She simply would NOT smile for me. This was the best shot I could get.

Leah, Katherine and Sydney enjoying the Doritos...a lot!

I can't believe it was three years ago that Leah joined our little family. It seems like yesterday, but yet I can't remember life before her! Here's Leah's "zeroth" birthday picture!
