Happy Birthday, Scarlett!
She is 4 years old today.
So happy to have had our fun, chatty, polite, helpful, confident, creative, hilarious girl with us for the past four years. Looking forward to another year of great memories!
Luke loves Minecraft more than anything, so to celebrate his fifth birthday, we came up with a dinner with a Minecraft theme.
His favorite food is pasta, so I tried to incorporate that into the meal. I got a lot of great ideas from Pinterest.
For gifts, I used some gem-print wrapping paper I got on clearance after Christmas. Then I put the gifts in a treasure chest that guests had signed at Luke’s first birthday party.
He was thrilled to get a Minecraft LEGO set.
He also got a Kindle Fire from Mimi – more ways to play Minecraft!
It was a fun little way to celebrate our boy’s big birthday.
For Luke’s birthday, he wanted to go to one of our favorite play places – Sport Bounce of Loudoun. It’s a bit of a drive, so we don’t go as often as the kids would like. Going as a birthday treat was just what an energetic 5-year-old wanted.
We got to open bounce a little late, but an hour ended up being enough time to get in everything they wanted to do.
Luke got to jump, slide and even experience hurricane force winds!
My mom is visiting so she got to play a bit, too.
It was a nice time, especially since they have added, Jumpin’ Java, a new coffee shop!
Scarlett had requested a “Pink Princess Sleeping Beauty” party for her birthday this year. For her first two birthday we were visiting family so we had big parties. This year we traveled in June instead of July so we were home for her third birthday. This meant no big party. But we could put together a nice little Pink Princess dinner.
It was a simple and little-kid-friendly menu:
She especially loved her Pink Princess Sleeping Beauty doll!
After presents, Scarlett did a quick change into the Izzy costume to blow our her candles.
Can’t believe she’s the big 3!
Happy 3rd Birthday to my little princess, Scarlett!
Time is flying by!

She’s such a great daughter and a really fun girl! Love her to pieces. She’s asked for a pink Princess Sleeping Beauty birthday dinner so it should be a fun day.
