Blast 30 :: Newly Three (and a giveaway!)

a day filled with simple requests..."baby, what would you like for your birthday breakfast?"
her reply..."toast"...
"where would you like to go?"
her reply..."the playground"....
so simple...so sweet.

Her special gift made late at night, into the early morning hours of her birthday (so I guess this qualifies as Friday crafting? ;)
I used Kinder Dolls...the directions are clear and she has a variety of doll styles and sizes....


Some sister love :: helping to make the Birthday Breakfast...


Funny actually as her toast request was literally a request for toast - plain and simple toast ~ she wasn't a big fan of the cinnamon bread but loved picking the sugar out of her slice! Another reminder to keep it simple....especially for the little ones....


Loving the playground (although it was hot!)

The "newly three" helping to make her birthday cake (a double chocolate request, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting)...
Having fun with the fishes...

One more round (and the last til next year!) of birthday love to come in September ~ this time of the boy variety! Until then...it will be some swap crafting and around the home goodness...

And of course ~ our drawing for the week!

Remember this ? It can be yours! Just leave a comment and we will draw the winner in Monday's post :) Good Luck!

xoxo

I love the reminder that a request for toast is just toast. I so often have to remember that I am the one needing the variety. Thank you for your sweet giveaway.

My goodness, this lifeday heart ensemble is gorgeous and what a terrific idea to decorate a child's chair for his/her special day...just as if the fairies landed at night to cast their sparkly cheer to delight upon waking in the morn'...well, may this beauty come my way! :)
