Gracelyn celebrated her third birthday with a Dora the Explorer themed party today. She offically turns three tomorrow.
Unlce Michael was, of course, at the party. Due to the fact that Grandma is out of town (she is off helping take care of Great-Granddaddy, who if you could add him to your prayer list, my family would appreciate it!), Grandpa and Uncle Michael didn't give Gracelyn all her presents from our side of the family today. Of course, you couldn't tell really since apparently there are no toys left in the toy store or Wal-Mart because Gracelyn and Davis have them all.
(Well, Davis doesn't have the Star Wars
toys I mentioned last week
, which I told Grandpa about them and he asked, "Why are we not at Wal-Mart buying this for us...uh, him?")
Needless to say, a good time was had by all. We had a Dora pinata that instead of hitting it, you pull on ribbon in the bottom and when you pull the correct string candy spills out. Davis is the best nephew ever because he'd run around, pick up candy and give it to Uncle Michael to eat. Of course, there was cake and ice cream. As any of you with young children know, you can't have a birthday party without the birthday favors. The favors included one of Gracelyn's favorite things--bubbles. So, we got to go outside and blow bubbles and run around like fools. We also saw three-year olds at their best with the complete lack of sharing skills. (Luckily, they should all outgrow this by the time they leave for college, maybe. I'm still waiting to see if I outgrow it).
It was a great party and everyone had a good time. Though I have to admit Uncle Michael is a bit worn out keeping up with Gracelyn and all her friends. I think it's time for a nap...
