someone sweet is turning three




Today was Elle's third birthday party! Three already! Heart, please stay calm!

She asked for two things. A teaparty and lights in the sky and she got both. She had a little teaparty with her friends. They had a nature trail in the woods and lots of cake! And of course, the teaparty.
Then, this evening, we had the family around and set off chinese lanterns into the sky for her. Her reaction? "oh mummy, they are like magic! they are so so pretty!"

So today marks her birthday eve and tomorrow my not so little girl will become three. And we will be celebrating by going to the zoo! We have bought her a camera so please expect lots of posts with her pictures in. I cannot wait to see what things she captures and she will be taking her camera tomorrow too!

So, here are a few more pictures of the teaparty. That cake took me 9 hours to do! Alot of tears and stress went into making that cake as i just had diaster after diaster, but her face this morning when she saw it made it all worth while.



















P.s Tomorrow is the last day to enter the HUGE giveaway to celebrate Elle turning three. Don't miss your chance to win all of these lovely prizes

  9. What precious memories you are creating for little Elle. The baked goods and entire set-up is so very lovely. :) You are so very blessed! This blog of yours just warms the heart and gives me plenty of smiles, and I'm not even a mommy myself nor feel equipped to ever be one for varying personal reasons. So, I enjoy parenthood vicariously, as odd as that might sound. Looking forward to viewing the beauty that Elle chooses to capture with her very own camera. The mind of a little girl is an enchanting place indeed!:) I'm unsure if this would be an appropriate entry to mention the contest/giveaway, and I apologize if this isn't the correct place to leave a comment about it, but I'd love to give a shot at the possibility of winning. I'm a huge fan of your gingerlilytea facebook page. My name is Kathina Owen. <3 (I don't have a blog, and so this is why I've commented as "anonymous".
