Brooklyn turned 3!

I still can't believe I have a 3 year old!  I love 3-4 year olds...they say the funniest things and are learning so much so fast.  Her birthday was on a Sunday this year (the 19th) so I threw her a friend cowgirl/cowboy themed birthday party the day before (more on that next post). 

On her actual birthday we went to church in the morning and then spent the rest of the day hanging out as a family and watching Brooklyn open and enjoy her gifts.  She helped me make her purple cake in the afternoon that she picked out.

She was so excited to open her presents.  She got a bike from John and I (which she had been asking for the last 6 months) and a helmet.  At first she'd tell me "I quit" whenever she'd get on her bike, but she is doing much better now and getting pretty good on it. 

She also got a stroller for her baby doll from my parents, a play phone from Grandpa and Grandma Mortensen, a Cinderella Lego castle from the Bowen's, and plenty of gifts from her friends at her party.  

She was really excited to blow out her candles but got shy once we started singing to her. 


  1. Brooklyn is the sweetest, smartest, spunkiest girl I know! She is so adorable!

  2. She is so cute Beck. I can't believe she is 3. She has the cutest personality! Sounds like a nice birthday day for her. Excited to see her party!
