Luke 10:41-42

"But the Lord answered her, 'Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing.'"

We celebrated the munchkin's third birthday recently. She has been obsessed with Daniel Tiger for the last 9 months so when I asked her what kind of cake she wanted, she said a tiger cake. For her first birthday the weather was cool & damp; last year it was sunny and 70.  We decided to take a chance and have the party at a nearby park. But it rained most of the day so we had to cram about 45 people in our house. It was crowded and chaotic but everyone had fun, and it forced us to clean our house...twice.

Here is the cake my wonderful friend decorated.  I made 2 round cakes and 2 cupcakes and she did the rest.  It was chocolate with cream cheese frosting and crushed Butterfingers between the layers.

The treat bags were "tiger tails"-Cheetos in a zebra print bag.  I got the tag from this blog. I've finally learned the lesson to make enough bags for each family that attends, not each guest.  I did not want extras in the house!

My amazing sister-in-law made tiger striped cupcakes.

Because we were planning on having the party at park I wasn't going to do much for decorations.  I got printables from the pbs website and the balloons were from Party City for like $5. I also used the site for her invitations and thank you cards.  I used the images and iron transfer paper to make shirts for the kids-Katerina for munchkin and Daniel Tiger for baby brother.

Because the girl has more than enough toys we suggested guests to help us build a collection of board games.  I think she's set for awhile.

Because of the new baby and working full time I had to scale back my party planning more than I would like but she had a great time, and that's what matters.
