And she's 3!!!!

My baby girl turned 3! And...of course, we had to have a princess party! :) We had been talking about it for months and I was so excited to give her a pink and very girly party! I asked her which princess she wanted to be and she had said Princess Aurora. She hasn't ever seen sleeping beauty, but I think that she likes that the dress is pink. :) We had family and friends over to celebrate our sweet Ally and had such a great time!

Grandma Ekk made her cake

there were tiaras, wands, swords and crowns for the guests to make.

everyone really enjoyed the swords!

When she was eating she kept saying; "these are all my friends!"

every present she got was amazing...she ooh'ed and ahh'ed over each one!

her first big girl bike from mom and dad!

love this!

We had such a fantastic birthday! She is just growing by leaps and bounds. She is ALL girl. She loves anything princess, pretty and sparkly. She definitely has an opinion on what she wears (especially shoes). She loves to show daddy everything! She is her brothers little side kick and the sweetest big sister to Samuel. She loves routine and if something is out of the ordinary, she lets us know! Ally also loves to be wear the party is and makes friends very easily. She has an adoration for books and can spend hours looking at them and wanting to be read to. She also loves to color and paint and is really good at puzzles. She also loves to watch shows, particularly Curious George, Sophia the First and Doc McStuffins. She amazes me with her tenderness towards others as well with her strong will. She loves to do things 'all by herself,' and is always ready to try new things. She is still my little cuddle bug and I love to snuggle her on my lap and read with her. I truly wish I had more time in the day just to play with her because she has such a great imagination and loves to play with her dollhouse, princess castle, play kitchen and babies. She has the most beautiful blue eyes and seems to just flutter around all day. :) I just love watching her and seeing how God has created her. As much as she loves pretty things, I pray that she would treasure inward beauty and know that God has created her perfectly and that being beautiful on the inside is the most important. I am so blessed to be her momma and I treasure that. I did my annual interview with her and these were her answers:

Happy 3rd birthday to my beautiful Ally girl. I love you more than you'll ever know and so thankful that God has given you to us. You make us laugh every day, test our parenting skills and show us that you are a leader. :) I can't wait to see all that God has for you, I know it's going to be amazing!
