I'm 3, I'm 3!!!
Kelsi has been waiting to turn 3 for a long time. Mainly, because when I go to the gym, you have to be 3 and potty trained to go into the playland. She's been potty trained for a while, but turning 3 seemed so far away for her. She is very excited to be 3. I can't believe how fast time is going by.

I asked Kelsi what she wanted to do for her bday and she said "I want to have a PARTY!" I asked her who she wanted to come to her party and she named 3 friends and so I went to work.We did a very low key "party", but the kids loved it. We went to the Kroc center and had cupcakes and presents and then the kids played in the playland area. They had SO much fun.
We went home and Kelsi took her "birthday nap" and John and I took her to "Old McDonalds" for dinner (McDonalds).We had a second little party tonight with Grandma and Grandpa Calderwood and Aunt Melanie and her 3 cousins who live in town. We had more cake, opened more presents and Kelsi really seemed to enjoy herself. We tried to explain to her several times during the day that we were doing all these special things because it was her birthday....we don't want her feeling entitled, right??!!

and of course, we HAD to have balloons.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELSI LYNN!! You are such a joy. We love you more than words can say. If we could push a magic pause button, we would. Here's to many many many more years of laughter and joy.
