Happy Birthday Chella Labella!

Saturday my wild child,Gracie turned 3!

She chose to go to Chuckie Cheese of course. Great place to torture the parents and have a good time. Mission accomplished!

She was a kick in the pants all day long. She told everyone Happy Birthday to you or she'd say YOU may not go with me to Chuckie Cheese. She was super nice to some and not so nice to others. You know...typical Grace!

My favorite part of the day was watching her open her presents. She was DELIGHTED with each and every present she received. She'd laugh and tell me she really loved it.

Do you ever worry you didn't get just the right present or buy enough of them? I always do for some reason but I couldn't have done better in her mind and it was great! She was so appreciative of everything.

The kids played for awhile and we ate pizza that tasted like cardboard! Fortunately for me I didn't care if tasted crappy since everything I eat makes me sick! I guess Chuckie Cheese isn't successful because of the delicious pizza it sells!

After Up Chuckie we headed over to Toys R Us and let Grace pick out a toy. She chose Fairy wings that play music. She is a odd duck that one!

I felt like crap by the time we got home so we saved the cake and ice cream for Sunday night's dinner with the missionaries.

We lit the candles and sang Happy Birthday to her but I couldn't get a picture of her blowing out the candles since the second we lit them she blew them out before I could take the picture.

It was a fun birthday for her and all the funny little things she did throughout made me smile and realize how grateful I am that this sweet, funny little girl is a part of my family. She is without question my hardest kid and yet she is also the most entertaining, and fun. I love, love her personality. Some days more than others of course!

Happy Birthday my little Chella Labella! I hope you had as good of a day as me!

Happy birthday to her!!!

I'm sorry you are still feeling sick. I feel so bad for you. But yay for the fun day! Yah chuck e. cheese is good for free tokens with a good report card but the pizza? tastes semi ok to me but the price is nuts. At least they stamp my kids hand upon entrance and there's some hope I won't lose my kid(s) or have them stolen from me.

Anyhoo, I have to tell you that my toughest kid by far is also the most entertaining. There's something about those little charachters that can drive you nuts one minute and have you busting a gut in laughter the next...and just when you were ready to strangle them!

Anyway, feel better soon my friend.

Happy Birthday Gracie!!! Love the gift she chose. Only a girl would want fairy wings that play music.

Happy Birthday, Gracie! I'm glad she had so much fun. I also found that my most challenging kids have the most rewarding surprises about them. God's way of keeping us from kicking them out of the house, I suppose ;)!

Happy Birthday Gracie! I know she may be your most difficult (don't we each have one of those), but she is so darned cute! Funny... Chuck E Cheese was all Jimmy wanted to do for his 3rd birthday too. Glad to you guys had a great day.

Happy Birthday Gracie! I have a three year old that is on the verge of a serious temper tantrum if I don't let her see "Gwacie and Baiwy" pretty soon. I'm serious. Can we bring you lunch?


Happy Birthday Gracie! Ditto on the hardest bringing such great joy! I just think that there is so much personality in those little bodies, it explodes out. Sometimes it is quite a mess. They do have the best quotes, though!

Happy Birthday Grace. Our kids love the place, but the pizza isn't the best. Peter Piper is much better, but you can't beat the games at Chuck.

Everytime we go to Chuckies I say, "next time we will buy the token and skip the pizza", but we always ending buy food. I guess it is the short term memory that kicks in.
