Oh the Preperations…Posted: October 14, 2010
Our Ava will be 3 on Friday! In many ways I can’t believe it…3… but in others it feels like I’ve know this little sweetie for my whole life. We are so excited to celebrate her this year, especially since it seems that for the first time she understands what’s going on. She knows about birthday’s and parties, she knows how old she will be, she knows that her birthday is October 25 15 (every time we ask her when her birthday is she says ‘October 25th?’) and she knows ALL about gifts… I did some research on 3 year old’s looking for some ideas for how we could best celebrate her on her special day. The thing I found that really spoke to me said that with these little ones it is really all about the preparation. Though they will no doubt love any kind of party or event that you plan for their day, they will mostly remember the details of how you got ready for it all. So in our house this week we have been focusing on preparing for turning 3! Here’s a little bit of what we’ve been doing:
*as a side-note, I was blog hopping one day and ran into this blog. This blogger swore that using only candy corn, peanut butter and chocolate she could make something with the taste and texture of Butterfingers… now, Butterfingers aren’t even my favorite candy bar but I thought I’d try out the easy, cheap recipe just to see… WOW- it is amazing! I was skeptical, but the finished product was dead on and I am embarrassed to say that I keep sneaking into the freezer for another taste (just to make sure it really does taste butterfingerish)!
What a wonderful way to make a birthday really feel complete! When this week is over we will be Birthday’d out!!! Well, that’s the plan anyway 😉
