Gabbi's 3!

Our "baby" turned 3!  Sniff sniff...  We had a little princess party with the neighbors to celebrate.

Some of the pretty princesses dining.

 We love this girl so much!

 There might be an extra candle on the cake, the queen was never really good at math:)

Some of the princesses (and a prince) were inspired by the recent Olympics and decided to change into leotards.  I believe this picture depicts a group floor routine.

Sweet Emery sporting a backwards power ranger mask and a vintage leotard, circa '94.

The girls "helping" Gabbi open presents.

 Gabbi's bestie, Zoe.

 Everyone whacking the princess pinata, which made the birthday girl a little sad.

The pinata aftermath.

 Someone (finally) got moved to her big girl bed.

We are super thankful to have such great friends/neighbors to help "fill the gap" of not being near to family anymore, we had a great night celebrating.

We had such a lovely visit home, it was so relaxing, yummy, and great to spend time with our families.   We returned home with very happy hearts.
