Friday Funnies:

Alanna and I went to sign her up for gymnastics, and the person behind the counter asked her if she was excited to start.  Of course she said yes!  Then they asked how old she was, and she said "In four more sleeps, it will be my birthday!"  WHAT?!?!?  Then they asked how old she will be and said said "On my next birthday, I will be FOUR!"  That is a true statement, but not in the right context.  HAHA.

I had to step in and tell them that she had JUST turned three on the last Saturday and that she is no where close to four.  It made me laugh a lot though.  I am not ready to start counting down the next birthday AT ALL.  Let's just settle in to three first.

 Have a nice holiday weekend!

Birthday Wrap Up:

Hands down, it was the best birthday party yet!  We had so much fun and so did all her friends.  Three is definitely the new two.  ;)  We were so glad that Nana and Papa got to be here with us for the weekend.

Gifts, Gifts and more Gifts: Birthday Part 3

 Nana and Papa got her this big castle that she can decorate herself!  Along with some clothes, boots, books, a puppy purse and I'm sure I'm forgetting something else.  LOL!

 Skyping with Mamaw and Papaw and they got her LOTS of clothes and jammies and a pretty dress and some fun dry erase boards and crayons/markers!  Also her new gymnastics leotard.  YAY!
This is "Baby Shyne" that was only two weeks old at her party last year.  She is getting so big!

 My friend crocheted this adorable hat and matching bag.
 Thanks Ms. April for the umbrella and cute clothes!!
We have some very sweet and talented friend for sure!  Alanna was overwhelmed with all of her gifts.  She has gotten three more since her party and one more to come!  WOW!!!  I might hide some for awhile and get them back out around Christmas!  HAHA!

I also want to mention that Grammy and Grandpa sent her some jammies and markers but I didn't get a picture of her opening it. =(

Thanks everyone!!!!  You made her day!!!

Birthday Party: Part 2

 Putting the hissing cockroaches IN THEIR MOUTHS!!!!
 Touching the SCORPION!  The only way I'd touch that thing would be with the heal of my boot!!!
 Holding the turtle!  
Only the birthday girl got to do it. =)
 Daddy tried to get Alanna to touch the snake.  Papa even touched it, but Alanna wanted nothing to do with it.  Later she told us she is scared of snakes now and doesn't like them.
 Alanna's favorite part of the day, was getting to hold the ferret on her lap!  She still talks about it.

 They put a dead mouse on the end of those blue tongs and daddy helped Alanna feed it to the fox.  He snatched it so fast that he looks like a blur.

This guy is SO HUGE and just grosses me out every time I see him.  YUCK!  His head is bigger than both of my fists together!!
