My 3rd Birthday Party

We did it! We had my 3rd birthday party. Having a family party was lots of fun. The first time the doorbell rang, I squealed, "Our friends are here!" and ran to get the door. It was Grandma, and she had decorated the cupcakes that Mommy had baked for me. I've been asking for train cupcakes for days! Every time the doorbell rang after that, I squealed, "More friends!!!" Then I'd answer the door and say, "We can have train cupcakes now." It was very hard to wait to eat those cupcakes. But I did wait!

While I waited, I ate snacks and opened lots of gifts. Nobody told me I'd get lots of gifts, and I sure loved opening them. Everyone was so kind. It was hard not to spend time playing with each toy and reading each book, but Mommy and Daddy said I had to wait until we opened them all, so I did. Then, when I was ready to play, it was finally time for cupcakes!!!

Everyone sang happy birthday to me, I blew out my candle, and I finally got to eat a cupcake. In fact, I got to eat two, which has never happened before in my life.

After all the cupcake eating, Daddy and I got our special gift out of its box. Daddy gave me Lightning McQueen and Doc racing slot cars that I get to play with only with him, not by myself. Unfortunately, Daddy forgot batteries. So, after Daddy went to the store and got batteries, I played with those slot cars for the rest of the day until my nap.

I haven't decided whether to sleep or not. Telling stories and singing is much more fun, and boy, do I have a lot to sing and talk about today. Thanks to my wonderful family for spending the morning with me, helping me eat my cupcakes, and giving me such wonderful gifts.
