Elizabeth’s 3rd Birthday

As soon as we got to Cincinnati in December, we celebrated Elizabeth’s 3rd Birthday. We had a fun and special day of pink, princesses, and playing. It was quiet and just us close family, but that’s exactly what this special little girl wanted on her special day – to just play! Here is the big girl sitting in her pretty dress with her presents.


Opening her presents. In the morning she got to open her presents from Mommy, Daddy, and Charlotte, and from Grandma and Grandpa Lilly, too. She got a princess sticker book, some “fancy” jewelry, a beautiful ballet dress…

and a Cinderella carriage. Can you tell she is ALL GIRL??


Plus a few more presents that I didn’t get pictures of. Everything is either small or can be made small so that we can pack it and take it back to Indonesia.

Later after dinner she got a few more presents from Grandma and Grandpa Menger.


And then we had cake! Princess cake! Purple ice cream Princess cake!!

And the party hats were very important. All year long when we talked about her Birthday she asked, “can I have party hats, too??” So yes, we had party hats. We all had to wear them.


Happy 3rd Birthday to my precious princess! We love you so much, Elizabeth!
