We kept it very small with only our immediate family, my parents and dear family friends, the Sliders joining us to celebrate Addison's third birthday.
Addison really likes orange. Most little girls always pick pink and purple...the pink cup, the pink popsicle, the pink shoes, etc. Addison always picks all things orange. So, she had all things orange with flowers and butterflies.
Mother and Daddy got her a real cowgirl hat.
She has been waiting her turn very patiently. Kennedy and Bailey already have one. She said to me, "Momma, now I can weal-wey (really) be a cow-ga-oil (cowgirl)."
She was quite excited. Mother made some lovely hat-bands for her.
Silly string made it's entry into the Klause House....
Daddy laughed the entire time while trying to help Kennedy spray her pink string. I didn't get any photos as we were laughing too much but Kennedy never actually shot the silly string intentionally. Her first pile of pink string was on the dining room ceiling! She was trying to figure out how to hold the can and depress the button at the same time. Her entire can was 'spent' in this manner...
to the side into the living room,
toward the back door and stuck to the wall,
back into the living room, over the sofa and onto the dog...
I know. It is blurry but it is the only photo I got of Mother. She looked just lovely that day. I should be ashamed of myself for not ensuring a good photo of her!
I thought that a wonderful gift for Addison would be a sandbox...with an umbrella over the top. Her Daddy built it for her. Pipaw (my Daddy) and Addison went to play in the sandbox. Sadie (the dog) was on their heels and enjoyed a sliver of shade in the grass while they played.

She is often seen in her lovely orange dress with her new orange sandals and her new cowgirl hat with the orange hat-band.
