On May 26th, we celebrated E's 3rd Birthday with her grandparents, uncles, and a couple of cousins at home. She wanted a pink princess theme, so we decorated with pink streamers, pink tablecloths, and lots of princess-y things.

My original intent was to make pink cupcakes, with pink icing and pink sprinkles instead of a having a Birthday cake, but I ended up running out at the last minute and purchasing a Little Mermaid cake from Kroger. When I was at Kroger with E, choosing sprinkles, she saw a Little Mermaid cake that she decided should be her Birthday cake. I reminded her that we were making cupcakes instead of buying a cake, but she did not understand. The entire time we were icing our cupcakes she kept talking about her Little Mermaid Birthday cake. She'd say, "Gran can eat this cupcake, because I'm going to eat my Little Mermaid cake." So late on Friday night I ran out to Kroger and picked up the Little Mermaid cake-- just couldn't risk her being disappointed by not having a cake.

On Saturday morning, we showed E her cake and she was completely UNsurprised. The entire time she told L about it she was all smiles. I am so happy I returned to Kroger late Friday night to get it-- It was exactly what she expected.

When both grandparents, uncles, and all cousins had arrived, we ate pizza, blew out candles on her cake, and then opened presents. Her big present this year was a Disney Princess Bike-- complete with carriage to hold her baby dolls.

After all her family was gone, she took off her Little Mermaid dress and played some more with her gifts, and rode her bike.
