Brynn's Cinderella 3rd Birthday Party

a dream is a wish your heart makes
when you're fast asleep
in dreams, you will lose your heartache
whatever you wish for you keep
have faith in your dreams and someday
your rainbow will come smiling through
no matter how your heart is grieving
if you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true ...

our little girl is 3!
well, almost. most of you probably realize that her actual birthday is October 1st,
but with Grammy visiting this weekend, we decided to celebrate a little early.
I spent the past week DIYing decorations for some Cinderella themed festivities... I was going for low-key and casual, but of course, that's never  easy for me to do! 
You know how much I love to plan parties. ;)
So, I broke out all of the cardstock, tissue paper, and ribbon and went for it...
Most of the decorations were made from what I already had in my stash.

since it was only brynn, daddy, grammy, and mommy in attendance this year,
i was more than willing to let the birthday girl sneak a few "pre-celebration" licks of her cake!

we even had a special guest that joined us for the party... Jacques!
brynn loved him, but decided to take a peek inside the mouse hole to see if Gus Gus was in there too.

as always, our girl was absolutely thrilled to help us sing "happy birthday!"
we did it twice, which is a tradition in the Wilson family...

opening gifts was a lot of fun too! stickers are always a winner in our house...

with all of the changes due to happen in the coming months, it was so wonderful to celebrate the beautiful baby girl who made us parents...

Our sweet Brynn,
          Every day we marvel at how much bigger you have gotten. We are constantly thinking back to those moments when you were this tiny, little baby that we snuggled into our chests and smothered with kisses, and it's so amazing to see how far you have come since then. You are unconditionally kind, incredibly smart, and every time I see those deep brown eyes, that beautiful smile, and those dimples that you get from your Daddy, it stops me in my tracks... You are becoming more and more beautiful every single day- both inside and out- and it fills my heart with joy and love to watch you turn into such a compassionate and caring person. We love you more than words can possibly say, and we are so excited to see what an wonderful big sister you will be to Lucas... May all of your dreams come true, baby girl!

Daddy & Mom                   

don't let your heart be filled with sorrow,
for all you know tomorrow
the dream that you wish will come true.

She is adorable. It seems like once the third birthday comes around, they grow up so fast. Cherish her little toddler tendencies. I love seeing your updates!
