Sonya turns 3!!!

The day began with Sonya waking up to a room full of pink and purple balloons. Finally, the day she had been talking about all year had come!

Sonya's party was combined with her friend, Jude, who had his birthday on the same exact day. The theme was "Stuff with Wheels" or something like that. A church cultural hall, with a little tape, was made into a fabulous racing track! Sonya reved up her tricycle, and faced the competition.

Sonya did seem to get some help from some unseen force...she FLEW past the other skilled riders...claiming her victory!

In trying to keep up, several of the contestants crashed their vehicles; no serious injuries were reported.

The kids eventually needed a rest. They found snacks and a train cake.

Here are some of my favorite cake-eating moments!

Once the party was over, everyone pitched in to clean-up the mess.

Sonya winded down that evening by playing with her new dollies. These just so happened to belong to her mommy some 25 years ago. I kept them in pristine condition, hoping they would be worth millions someday. Sonya managed to tangle their perfect hair and rip off their clothes in a matter of minutes. Nice to see them played with properly!

Yea for Birthdays!


  1. Ahh! What a fun and creative day! I'm sure those Bob Mackie dolls were GLAD to finally be played with. Such a good idea. I think Entegra might get some new Barbies for her birthday as well. She's looks like she had a great day. Happy Birthday Sonya!

  2. I was FREAKED OUT when I saw "my name" in the comment section, but then remember mine comes up as Rhodes Trip, NOT Taryn. Guess you've got two Taryn buddies out there ;-D

    So sorry we missed it and I believe King Colin will have to make it up with a play date over at our house, I mean, Castle, so I'll be calling to make arrangements.
