My Christmas Cracker Turns Three (In Pictures)...

on Monday, 06 January 2014.

The festivities have been and gone, but they left behind some pretty good memories.  Christmas 2013 brought a third birthday for my beautiful big girl on Christmas Eve, and I was really excited as it was the first birthday where she was likely to really know what was happening.

We went to see Father Christmas and went out for lunch with some friends, before coming home for a snooze.  Then Grandpa and Nana (my dad) came to see her before we went over to my Mum's for a little Christmas Eve/Birthday party with some family and friends.  We then stayed at my Mum's until Boxing Day.

I was going to post her birthday photos alongside our Christmas ones, but then I thought that I was living up to the whole stereotype of grouping Christmas and Birthday's together already.  So even though I didn't take many photos on the day, here is her third birthday captured in the few photos I took...

Every girl needs a massive balloon to wake up to.

Opening pressies with Daddy.  She got a scooter which she was so excited about.

And finally laying out their new sacks for the big man himself. (They have their names on them but I have turned them round for the purposes of this blog!)

All in all it was a lovely day.  I cannot believe my baby is three.  And in less than six weeks LL will be one.  Why does time fly when you are enjoying yourself the most?

    Ahh Happy Birthday to Mads, I can't believe all the little ones are turning 3. It looks like she had a really special day. I hope she has lots of fun with her scooter.

    Oh it looks like she had a wonderful day! And I totally agree - giant balloons that ar at least as tall as the birthday girl are the way to go! I can't believe how grown up all our little ones are starting to look, there must be something about turning three that makes them shoot up overnight!

      Three does just seem really grown up for some reason, not sure I like it! I keep calling her two still. x

    It's lovely that you're making Birthday and Christmas two separate occasions, it could so easily become one for her.
    I love, love, love your Daughter's matching Christmas cardigans and love their matching Christmas sacks!
    Thanks for sharing x
