Chess woke up feeling good and getting birthday greetings from me and Lera. When we got downstairs, she saw all the decorations and gasped. I asked her what they were for and she said, "My birthday!"
When I asked Chess awhile ago what she wanted to eat on her birthday, she said, "Chocolate." I said we could have a chocolate cake, and what kind of food did she want to eat? She replied, "Chocolate food." She takes after her momma on that. We ate waffles with whipped cream and chocolate chips as a compromise.
We went to the library and park, two of Chess's favorite places. After lunch we played outside with the new water table, which both girls LOVED.
Chess "helped" me frost her chocolate cake.
When Jared got home we had homemade pizza, a favorite for everyone, and chocolate cake with white icing.
She's got that "cheese" face down pat.
If you'll notice, Lera has frosting on her mouth. That's because as soon as I got the cake on the table, she leaned forward and took a bite out of it.
Then Chess opened her present, a Melissa and Doug wooden house with keys, locks, doorbells, and little people to go inside. Chess saw it awhile back and wanted it, so I went back and got it for her.
We had a great day celebrating our three-year-old. We love you, Chess!
