Addison's Three

Since Addison's birthday is on Halloween, we usually celebrate it the weekend before or after her birthday. This year I decided the night before at 6:30 that we were going to celebrate her birthday on Halloween. Since Addison was a mermaid and Drew was an octopus for Halloween I thought it would be fun to stay with that theme and have a Under the Sea party. Since I didn't have to much time to throw this party together it was pretty simple, which I know Tim appreciated. Plus all Addison really wanted and cared about was her birthday cake.

I think you could do a lot of really fun things with an Under the Sea party. In a way I guess it was good that I didn't have to much time to plan her party, that way I couldn't go overboard. Which if you ask Tim is really easy for me to do. Here are just some of the things I served in case you wanted any ideas.

Cake from Harmons.

little turkey, cheese and avocado sushi style sandwiches

Star shaped tuna fish sandwiches. After the party I thought it would have been fun to make fish shaped peanut butter and jelly fish sandwiches.

Swedish Fish

and gold fish.

Addison loves blowing out the candles and having Happy Birthday sang to her.

Addison is such a great big sister and daughter. Everyday she becomes more and more grown up. Tim and I love our conversations with her, and get a kick out of listening to the funny things she says.

Here are some things about Addison:

-Her favorite color is green, but loves anything pink.

-Once it gets dark outside she thinks it is time to put on her pajamas

-If you ask her if she needs help, she will say, "No, I'm fine."

- We told Addison that Grandma and Grandpa Shirley is Tim's mom and dad and Grandma and Grandpa Wright was my mom and dad. So when ever we tell her we are going to Grandma and Grandpa's house she will always ask, "Daddy's mommy and daddy or Mommy's mommy and daddy?"

-She loves listening and singing to music.

-She loves to give hugs and kisses to Drew every night before Drew goes to bed.

- Her two favorite movies are Snow White and Bolt.

-Her favorite show is Dinosaur Train.

-She is such a great eater and pretty much eats anything.

-She calls Tim by his name. If you ask her what my name is she will say mommy. She has learned that if Tim doesn't respond to dad then she will call him Tim. It's pretty funny.

I love that you just threw that all together in a day! How cute! And Addi is such an adorable little girl- she is surely not a toddler anymore! Cute cute cute.

Happy Birthday Addison! Can't believe she's already 3 years old. :) Hope you are doing well Kim. You are such an adorable girl mom. I rarely have time to straighten Maile's hair but the other day when I was I remembered your old post about how you give the option for Addison to have a flip style doo, curls or piggies. :) You are such a cute mom!
Love ya.
