It Can't Be...Finley is 3!

I still can't believe Finley turned three last week...time really does fly by with a little one.  So much has happened in the three years she was born, but at the same time, it feels like it was just yesterday she was born.

Finley had three birthday celebrations - the first being our family celebration.  Growing up, we always had a family dinner as part of our birthday celebration.  However, Finley's family is quite large since most everyone now lives here in town.  So, we had about 25 people at our house for her family birthday party, and there were definitely a few family members missing at that!

She had to take a break from opening presents to change into her new ballet clothes

Next, she had a party with her friends at the Creative Discovery Museum.  She had a great time at the "screative covery museum" as she calls it!  They played all over the museum for a while and then had pizza, cupcakes, and ice cream in the Rainbow Room.  Finley had a ladybug painted on her face, and she really enjoyed seeing all of her friends.  She even got to sit in a special chair to open presents!

Goodie Bags, Cookies, and Presents!


To end the party extravaganza, Chad, Finley, and I went to the circus.  I haven't been to a circus in a LONG time, so this was a treat for me, too!  Finley loved the elephants (my favorite, too!), and she didn't seem to notice that the lion tamer almost got eaten!
