Happy Birthday Mackinsie!

This past weekend my Mackinsie turned 3 years old. I can't believe it. How time flies by. For weeks prior to her party I kept asking her what kind of party she wanted and she would say a "Yellow Party." I have no idea where she got this idea but she stuck to it. With all the princesses in our house I thought she would say a dancing princess party or a tinker bell party. No, she wanted a yellow party. I even suggested those things and she went back to a yellow party. So a yellow party it was. I didn't want to do just a boring yellow cake so I asked her if I could do a yellow flower cake or a yellow butterfly cake. She chose yellow flower. I must admit, I did have fun doing a "yellow party." I thought it was so cute that that is what my little girl came up with for her 3rd birthday party. During her party as she looked at the yellow cake, yellow streamers, yellow balloons, yellow plates, yellow napkins and yellow table cloths she said, "I LOVE YELLOW." Of course what made her party so much fun is that her cousins all came. She loves her cousins too!
She got lots of presents from her cousins and grandparents. Thank you!!
I suppose this is what I have to look forward to in 10 years. She got a little "Get ready" set with pretend make up, curling iron, blowdryer, brushes, etc. As soon as she opened it she decided she needed to go and "get ready." Notice she is at my vanity because that is where one goes to get ready.
