I’m 3!

So if you all didn’t already know, I’m a pretty big deal. Today was my 3rd birthday party! It was a huge success! I got lots of presents, plus all of my friends came over, we played games, and ate cake! Mom and Dad even blew up lots of balloons and hung streamers!

I got my own camera and took pictures of the party.

Grace is certainly our big girl. She spent the entire weekend showing us how big she is by trying out her new bike, pointing out letters in her name, and reading us her stories (from memory). Here are a few highlights of the festivities:

Justin & Jinny’s wedding

October 12, 2011 · filed under: Events, Family, Kids by Geoff

Last weekend, Jinny and Justin tied the knot! According to our photos, however, the center of attention was not our sister, Jinny, the bride. Nor was it our new brother-in-law, Justin. It was not the matron of honor, Jill, or Geoff, one of Jinny’s favorite brother-in-laws. Even sweet little Madelyn was out-shined. As seen below, the flowergirl, Grace, stole the show! Note: it may be that our photos are a bit biased by the photographer, Grandpa Gil…: )

The actual wedding ceremony itself was short-lived for our little star. She marched herself down the aisle carrying her basket with a big smile, then headed right to Daddy’s pew. As seen here, Grace enjoyed the ceremony while cuddling with Dad.

Then it was break time for some fun outside at the winery before the dance. All that sitting still meant lots of energy for our 2 year-old. Remarkably, though, the little princess still managed to keep her dress sparkling clean!

After the wedding party arrived, the dinner was served, and the toasts made, it was time to show some moves. Grace waited anxiously beside the dance floor for her chance to twirl in the pretty lights. In this video favorite, Grace decides that Justin has danced with Jinny long enough and cuts in…

Of course, there are more photos from Grandpa the photographer that detail the event:

Happy Birthday, Grace!

Believe it or not, Grace is 2 years-old! It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital, and now she’s telling us everything she wants and everything she wants us to do!

Grace spent the last month reading the “If You Give a Pig a Party” book, so when we started talking about her upcoming birthday party, she was an expert. She picked out a pretty dress, asked for balloons, and repeatedly told us it was her party.

Our little girl isn’t so little anymore…. *sniff*


Happy Birthday Grace!


Bunches of additional photos from the event. 🙂
