Birthday Princess Audrey
We talked two years ago as a couple about how we wanted to downplay gifts at Christmas (making room for the real meaning of the season) and make an intentional effort to celebrate the uniqueness and blessing each child is on their birthdays.
We celebrated Audrey’s 3rd birthday (two days after my birthday and three days before our wedding anniversary…its been a busy week!) on Saturday with her sweet girl friends. The sweetest princess pal being her older sister who prayed for her long before she was born into our family. Such a treasure to watch these two girls love one another.
I took on my most ambitious cake-making yet with this 9 layer pink princess cake, it nearly tipped but we stuck a BBQ skewer in it and it held in okay!
The girls (and our two boys) all decorated crowns and scepters.
Audrey was pleased as punch with her cake, so worth the 5 hours of work!
By night’s end the party girl was worn out and we found her on the couch with her new pillow pet and her special blankie and her thumb…
It’s hard work being in a princess! What a delight of a time to do girl stuff and celebrate the gift this sweet thing is to our family. She makes us laugh and smile literally every single day.
The cake is GORGEOUS! I’m guessing she will always remember it. Adorable last photo of the day!
