Strawberry Shortcake Birthday

My sweet Annabelle is 3! I can't believe it! It was such a good day. We all had such a good time. Bare with me guys, I had to take pictures with my iphone because I could not find my camera. 

I made chocolate covered strawberries! Yummmm!

This gluten free cake was so good! The strawberries got a little runny because I put the cake in the fridge for awhile before the party. It was the first two layer cake I ever made. I got the recipe from a really awesome blog. Here is the link: Inspire RD I didn't use the frosting recipe because the double broiler thing was a little too advanced for me. :) I used a basic buttercream frosting.

I love this little girl. Amie always calls me "Dess!"

Present time!

So many awesome presents!

A sweet friend got Annabelle a "I'm a Big Sister" book for when God decides we can adopt a child out of the foster system. A little note was written in the book that said, "You will be a big sister to many foster babies," and yup, I cried.

God has truly blessed us with wonderful friends. Happy Birthday, sweet Annabelle. I know there was a time mommy and daddy (and doctors too) were very worried about your health and we are so thankful you are healthy and thriving! God is so faithful.
