Natalie's 3rd Birthday!

Natale turned three on Dec 12th and we had a Princess party with family. We'd only ever had a cake and presents with our immediate family so she thought all the decorations and extra attention was great, even though she had/has a bad cold. Thanks for making her day special! Showing us "how many" with her fingers.
Bill, Linda, Bethany, my mom having some snacks.
Brian did a great job with the decorations. Thanks babe!
Eating pizza... we made 4 and ate them all!

Katherine drove in after finals from Taylor with her friends. They made it just in time for cake and ice cream.

For some reason, all the presents have lots of pieces this year!

It was a great party and I can hardly believe we have a three year old... what's harder to believe is we almost have three children!! I'm 32 weeks now... he's almost here!

Happy Birthday Natalie!! I left my camera at my sister's house, so I can't post Mallory's birthday pictures until next week. :( Mallory was total opposite of Natalie......she didn't like the attention. When everyone sang happy birthday, she crawled under the table and wouldn't blow the candles out. We just had my parents and two of our friends with their two kids.....nothing elaborate. I made a Clifford cake for her. I love the Barbie one.....that is really good. I was going to make a Mr. Potato Head one for Brayden in March using the batter bowl. How's sales going? My have been good until now. I only have one booking and that is in February! I need the break anyways. I can't wait for the Spring catalog to come out. We are going to Arkansas for Christmas to spend it with all of our families. We haven't been there since last Christmas for Billy and Easter for me and the kids. I can't believe you are 32 weeks away. Did it go by fast for you? I know for me it seemed really slow. So any names for your baby boy? Just curious. Call me sometime.

Happy Belated Birthday to Natalie! Isn't 3 y.o. a fun age? Actually all the ages were (and still are) FUN! Sorry I haven't sent your Christmas card yet-was late getting the new addresses. Sure you had a great PA Christmas!
