Ellie & Kate's Third Birthday

Saturday was Ellie and Kate's third birthday (I can't believe they are already three!), and it was celebrated with a rainbow-themed birthday bash at their house. 

Check out the adorable rainbow cakes and cupcakes Tori made...

Ava had so much fun sitting on her Papa's lap and watching all the action outside. 

She also thought the TCU basketball was very tasty :). 

I love this picture of Kate's reaction to her ballon popping. Priceless. 

Josh and his Momma :). 

 Grammie and Ava. 

Ellie waited patiently while we all sang Happy Birthday. 

And even though I didn't have a good view of Kate, I really like how this picture turned out. I think it really captures the magic of a birthday party through the eyes of a child. 

"Where is my cupcake?!"

(This was taken shortly before Papa accidentally put a cupcake a little too close to Ava, and she happily smashed it!)

After the cake, Ava enjoyed playing with all the toys. Even the trucks. 

And she really, really liked the ball pit. 

The maraca in her goodie bag was also a hit (and has been ever since the party). 

Thanks to a great suggestion from Tori, Ellie and Kate loved their Peppa Pig Playhouse we got them!

This picture is a bit blurry, but it accurately depicts how fast they pulled out all the rainbow-colored tissue paper. 

They loved it :). 

Happy Birthday, Ellie and Kate!

  1. Wow I can't believe the twins are so big now! They are adorable, and Tori rocked that party theme...cutest cupcakes ever! So the pic of you and Ava both smiling so big with your chew beads in her hand MUST be framed...it is gorgeous!


About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
