Thursday consisted of a party at preschool and then a party at a friend's house. She wanted to be a kitty cat (by the way, she can now say a "c" sound at the beginning of those words, so it is no longer "titty tat" - sorry family, no more messing with that one!) and a tinkerbell. So on Thursday, she was a kitty and Friday for Halloween, a Tinkerbell. Can't be a kitty without a tail!For the party at our friend's house, I made these candy corn ice cream treats! (Vanilla, orange sherbet, pineapple sherbet - let each melt most of the way, tint orange and yellow a little darker, freeze in layers)We were each in charge of a 5-minute station for the kids to do a game or craft. We made tootsie-pop ghosties at my station (thanks for the idea, Starla!).

THE ARTICLES OF FAITHOF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS
History of the Church, Vol. 4, pp. 535—541
1 We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
2 We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.
3 We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
4 We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
5 We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.
6 We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.
7 We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.
8 We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.
9 We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.
10 We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.
11 We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.
12 We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.
13 We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

If you get jewelry, you have to try it on with your favorite dress and shoes, right? This was the last gift...it was really late at night, but she was having so much fun...Mommy and Macey got ready, spent time playing with the new mermaid barbie in the bathtub, played together, and then napped so we were ready for the rest of our day with Daddy.
Greg took the 2nd half of the day off to spend together with bug. She has been BEGGING to go see the butterflies at the zoo (she thinks they're going to land on her finger, like they do in the movies). Tuesday afternoons are free at the Memphis Zoo, so we finally took her!
Macey was just cracking me up in the butterfly exhibit, because she kept holding her little finger out, waiting for a butterfly to land on it! She was so disappointed that it wasn't working, so the interest in the butterflies was quite brief for all the begging she had done to go see them :-)
On to the "stinky giraffes" - as she calls them...
Check out their profiles and eyes...twinners, huh!
After the zoo...we went out to dinner and then to Chucky Cheese. We really enjoyed our day together, and I think we sang the happy birthday song, over a period of at least 4 days, probably a total of 15 times. She just absolutely loves the attention. She has been waiting a whole YEAR to turn "three my old", you know!
She really wanted to talk to Chucky. Finally realizing he wasn't conversing with her, she resorted to just groovin' with him!
