Homemade Birthday Goodness

Sorry! I forgot to post photos from Abby's THIRD birthday! She is 3 going on 13! So smart and wonderful! :) My mother in law made this fabulous cake for her Strawberry Shortcake party. Homemade pound cake with about a pound of everything in it! Soooo good for you ;) Homemade icing and lots of strawberries (Abby's favorite) We collected the Strawberry Shortcake characters from McDonalds for weeks so she would have extra for her cake. Can't get any cuter storebought!

Brandon didn't actually "make" the kitchen. it was cheaper to buy one, but he did handcraft it together with his own hands! Three hours later, a nice wooden kitchen! :) My mom sewed her a Strawberry Shortcake apron, bandana and potholder. She has to wear all of them while she cooks for us!
Lots going on right now... will try to post more later...

She is just so adorable!!! I can't believe she is three, that is crazy to me!!

The cake is just so cute! You're right, it couldn't be any better! And I love the kitchen and her cute cooking outfit!

I still think you've counted wrong, there's no way she could be 3, you must mean 2.

But she's adorable, and I kind of want to come over and play in her kitchen!

3!? Really, are you sure? I guess you would know ;) I just can't believe so much time has passed already. I can see the 3 going on 13 just from those pics. What a darling cake, hat, kitchen & apron, etc. So funny SS is back "in" now.

3?!? I remember sewing a blanket for her when she was still in your tummy.
