A Gourmet Meal for a Special Three-Year-Old

Today is the big day… our little girlie turned three today!  More on the birthday festivities in a minute.



I started the morning with some oatmeal topped with apples and bananas.  Why did it take me 33 years to start putting fresh fruit on top of oatmeal???  So good!




Lunch was another cold veggie pizza.  Last night, I chopped extra veggies and bagged them up.  Then at lunch today I just spread the cream cheese over the pita and sprinkled the veggies on top.  Voila!  Super-easy, veggie-packed lunch!  And it was so filling!

Then I came home and got dinner started.  I had a very special meal planned for the birthday girl!  While dinner was cooking, we gave Sadie her presents.  She got a new night light for her room, some new pots and pans to cook with in her little kitchen, a pizza party kit, and a cool cushy arm chair with a sleeping bag stuffed inside!  She loved being the center of attention!



Then…. the special gourmet dinner…


Chicken Nuggets, Macaroni and Cheese, Tater Tots, and Edamame: all of Sadie’s favorites! Oh yeah… don’t be jealous of that skillful cooking!




And finally… more cake!


Any guesses whose finger that is trying to grab some icing?





Can you tell that Sadie was enjoying our lovely rendition of “Happy Birthday”?


And finally… another look-back…

Three years ago, we met Sadie for the first time…

Awwwwwwww… so sweet.

Happy birthday to my girlie!


  1. This was great! Loved the pics and the story! Sadie is a baby doll. :)

  2. Awww, I LOVE seeing the old pictures from the day Sadie was born...and looking at how much she's grown as of today. What a sweet, loving girl. I know y'all had fun celebrating with her again last night!
