"I not 2, I 3!"

Where have the days gone?! We celebrated our big girl's 3rd birthday this past week...And, what a special day it was! So much could be said about our sweet blessing...the new life she brought into our lives the day she was born...the gifts of hope, faithfulness and joy that re-rooted themselves into our a result of her life and the Lord's love being poured on Aaron and I...
 When deciding on her name, we came across Elisea - a Hebrew name (female form of Elisha) meaning, "God is salvation;protect my health." And, therefore, the perfect name for our #2 girl...Claire was a name I've always loved, and it means "bright." So, we welcomed to the world our blessed, healthy and oh, so bright, Elisea Claire.

Elisea's first days...

 Elisea's 1st Birthday

 Elisea's 2nd Birthday

Elisea's 3rd Birthday
 Yes, that is a chip clip holding back all that hair she has!
Ha! It's her morning-do:)
 Our 2 it when they play together:)
 Our sweet LiLi and the birthday girl
 That beautiful hair!
Her Pink Princess Castle Cake that she insisted on - after viewing the Lego Cake I had picked out (because she loves Legos and it looked super-easy!), she spotted this one in the sidebar - soooo, the pink castle cake it was! thanks to for the recipe and detailed directions!

My first cake ever to make as well! Thanks to Granddad and LiLi for their assistance!

Our girls - cute as buttons...Mom and Dad - exhausted!
Fun night at chuckecheese...yes, one of those things I said I would never do as a parent...haha! I must say, it is hard with winter birthdays...can't have much outdoor fun:(
And, Saturday morning we had a friend party - a pancake and pajama party! So fun! Elisea's church buddies showed up in their pj's and we had fun toppings for the pancakes and did omelettes and coffee for the adults.

One of the most fun things is picking out the "fun stuff" for the party! 
I love it...

Fun times...memories in the making...and truly blessed indeed...
Happy Birthday to our sweet, Elisea Claire.

"For the Lord is good; His steadfast love endures forever and His faithfulness to all generations."
Psalm 100:5
