Gracie's favorite color is GREEN. So...when we asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday party she, of course, decided she wanted to have a green party. We celebrated her 3rd birthday with just our little family...with lots of things green, a turtle cake as she requested, and fun gifts from our family. I think she really enjoyed her green birthday!

She came downstairs on the morning of her birthday to find lots green balloons and a turtle pinata from Daddy! She was adorable and said..."I LOVE IT!"

Kissing the pinata before smashing into it!

Stuffed with "chocolate mint patios"
(a.k.a. York Peppermint Patties)

Homemade Turtle Cake

She melted my heart when she said...
"I love my turtle cake"

Showing us how many fingers old she is...


Almost got it.

Yep, that's it...THREE!

WOW! How is she already 3?

Her birthday dinner request -
Cheese Quesadilla, chips and milk from Chipotle!
(we loved our burrito bowls too.)

No, Delaney...we said wanna eat a Burrito;
Not eat your TOE.

We don't have any matches...
so we improvised with our kitchen torch.

Happy Birthday Gracie Girl!

Attempt at a family photo.
(I'm only posting it because we don't have any pics
of the 4 of us...I don't like how large my face looks.)

This one will be three before we know it!

The Girl-Lees!

Everyone was tired by this point
& not interested in any more pics.

Happy Birthday!
