Cora is Three!

Cora enjoying a donut on her birthday

Our little lady turned three years old on Saturday during a very busy weekend. We spent Friday night grilling in our front yard with both sets of grandparents and most of her aunts & uncles. Everyone had a fun time getting reacquainted. On Saturday we had donuts in the morning and then left for a canoe trip. She loved riding in the canoe and dipping her hand in the river; but her favorite part was when we stopped and let her “swim” in the cold, cold water.

Cora didn’t want to buy a cake this year. She wanted to decorate her own cake. So, she did.

It turned out beautifully; she was very pleased.

We are so thankful for her. She keeps us on our toes as we parent her, but she also makes us smile a lot.

Her favorite things are pink and purple, babies (real or dolls), cooking, helping, playing outside, and copying Malaki. We’re looking forward to many more years, and learning many new favorites with Cora.

Happy Birthday, Sweetheart – we love you so much!

(Many thanks to the talented Karolyn for taking the cake-decorating pictures!)
