My sister is the one that really deserves all the credit for making the party a success. She not only came over early to decorate the cake, she also bought the paints which were the best present of the day! Now that things have calmed down a bit, Isabelle is much more excited about her other presents as well, but the paints are still the favorite!

I know that I am not the hostess with the most-est when it comes to birthday parties. I don't have balloons and streamers everywhere...or for that matter the fancy banners that everyone makes nowadays. I don't have a candy bar or special labels on water bottles or even gift bags for my family to take home. We don't have a bunch of friends over, in fact, mostly just family. But, I am pretty sure that for now that is okay. The girls had a great time. We got to eat yummy chili and cake and ice cream and Isabelle is still talking about it over a week later. A week later and I still can't believe my sweet girl is three!
