Lexi's Birthday Party

I can't believe that it's already been two weeks, and neither of us blogged about Lexi's 3rd Birthday Party!! 

It was a little crazy, and a whole lot fun.  Several of the kids invited had to cancel at the list minute to stomach bugs and things going around, but that turned out to be a good thing, because the weather was terrible, and we were trapped inside.  As anyone who has been to our house will tell you, we have a great backyard for having lots of people over, but a rather small house.

We still ended up with eight children (including our three) and 11 adults all hanging out in our little living room.  Lexi had two priorities during the event:  opening presents, and hiding the toys that she didn't want to share.  She is getting pretty good at trading; and by trading I mean grabbing the toy/thing that she wants, and shoving some other random item into the arms of the child.  She does this to her brothers all the time.

Angela made an awesome cake that was decorated to look like a frog (Lexi was rather critical when evaluating the placement of the M&Ms to generate the frog affect).  I was not certain that the frog would remain intact overnight until the party started, but Lexi was ultimately able to abstain.  I do believe it required some additional M&Ms and a cupcake to ensure the cake's safety, however.
