And after the holidays, some much needed new storage was needed to house all of Whitney's toys in our living room/play area. I decided on these babies from Ikea (of course) and my sister was generous enough to gift them to Whitney for her Christmas/birthday present. Some Lack shelves above work great for additional storage and to display prettier toys.
Speaking of birthdays, we celebrated Whitney's 3rd one last Sunday after a brief week of planning. I almost decided not to do the party thing this year, but our little girl had been talking about her themes for the past 6 months or more, that I wouldn't have felt right to not have one. She finally settled on Dora and so Matt and I got to work on decorations, activities, treats and food. I found this adorable printable party kit which wasn't too gaudy and planned the party colours around that.
Here are some snaps from before and during the party.
