Rory and Abby's 3rd Birthday

Rory about to put her hand print on her plate.  She wasn't too sure about painting her hand.
I was so proud of Abby putting her hand print on her plate.  She usually has a meltdown when there is any paint on her hands.  She didn't even cry.  She just hyperventilated a little. :)

We had the girls' 3rd birthday party this past Saturday.  They are both very excited about drawing, coloring and painting, so we had the party at Brush with Art, a local art studio.  The kiddos at the party each painted their own memory plate that was finished off with their hand print.  All-in-all, the party was a huge success!  The girls and their friends had a good time painting, eating cake and checking out the new presents.  Hopefully, it will get warm enough soon so that the girls can ride their new bikes and jump on their new trampoline.  They are itching to get outside.  I hope that Mother Nature cooperates soon!!  It's so hard to believe that our baby girls are 3 years old.  They are growing up so fast!  The girls had a wonderful birthday this year.  Thank you to everyone who helped to make it a special day for them!!
