Most of the pics below are from the little birthday party we had for Angie. You know, it was 3 days beforehand and we had talked about just doing an at-home small family celebration for Angie's birthday. But the two older ones were hoping for a 'party' (they actually were hoping for a party at Chuck E. Cheese!) and extended family members didn't want to miss out either. So we decided to have a fairly small gathering of friends over to celebrate Miss Redhead turning 3! So even though there are MANY MANY MANY people that we love and that we know love our kids, we had to keep the invitation list down to a dull roar...even though our kids are as social as can be, it is recommended that we keep large social gatherings to a minimum within the first 6 months to a year. So if you weren't at the birthday party please don't take it personally - it was a choice we made (to keep the gathering small) based on what we felt was best for the kiddos and their transition.
That said...enjoy the Picture Parade below!
John & Laura loved helping decorate for the party while Angie was taking a nap
This is what Angie had to say about her party..."ROCK ON!"
Stick the Sticky Nose on Elmo...oodles of fun!
True to form, Angie handled the attention with grins and giggles
Thankfully Angie had a couple "helpers" waiting in the wings to help her blow those candles out!
John & his buddy Jake playing with the Play-Doh dog!
Girlfriends! (Laura's newest friend Rachel!)

This is a regular 'look' for Angie
She's a better cook than Mami is! (that's not hard...)
