Three years old

Sara Beth turned three this past weekend. On one hand, Sara Beth acts as if she is already at least seven, and on the other, the past three years have flown by. Sara Beth celebrated her birthday along with her friend, who turned four a little over a week ago. In my opinion, Heather and Sophia's mom pulled off an awesome tea party, though, to be honest, I don't have many tea parties I can compare it too. Sara Beth and Sophia could totally pull off some sort of twin themed costume when Halloween rolls around.

With every birthday comes birthday presents; this one was no exception. Sara Beth got a fairy makeup set.

She wasted no time, eagerly applying copious amounts of makeup to herself and Heather.

My parents came down from their cottage in north Wisconsin for the weekend. I'm sure they enjoyed the 105 degree days of Texas summer. Sara Beth asked to put some of her makeup on Grandma too.

Sara Beth wanted to show of her new bracelet for the camera too. She has owned the hair bows for a while, but she decided she needed to put some extra in her hair for her birthday.

Sara Beth still loves her cat piano. I figured she could play the piano while I accompany her with my guitar. It became a little tricky when Sara Beth changed her instrument from piano mode to "cat meow" mode, but I put some good effort into keeping up with her.

With all the planning and preparing for Sara Beth's party, Heather still found time to have Sara Beth and Ashlyn decorate some shirts. Sara Beth didn't realize she was using glow in the dark paint until she took the shirt into the unlit bathroom. She though it was cool that her shirt would glow green.

So, on every night that I put Sara Beth to bed, she always wants to sleep next to Heather and I. Every night, I tell her no, that she wiggles too much, and if we laid down next to her, she would get too excited and not sleep. This week, she informed me that she needed to sleep in my bed that night. According to her, Emma Rose, her doll, wiggles too much, and gets too excited when Sara Beth sleeps next to her. Clever girl. I responded that if it was too big of a problem, Emma Rose could sleep in the bean bag chair next to Sara Beth's bed.
