Last week Lois turned 3. Three!! She's such a big girl. Here she is turning one and two. I wish I had taken more pictures. Ah, I hate it when that happens--when I mean to take more pictures but only afterwards realize I didn't take very many! Her balloons are still a-float one week later. I was thinking of having a second little photo shoot. We'll see. I did get a handful of pictures of the cake, which was amazing!
I made Alicia's chocolate cake with cloudburst frosting. The frosting wasn't quite as fluffy as I was hoping it would be, and I think I'd prefer vanilla extract over almond extract next time, but really, this is one of the best cakes I've ever had! It was so moist and delicious. Lois also had to have a party hat, of course, and I got the idea for the bunting from this adorable picture
I may not have gotten a lot of pictures, but I did get a few. Here's the big girl herself. Very pleased with her cake, which she helped make.

Happy three years to your beautiful little girl! The cake looks amazing, bravo!

Thanks for your comment.
We live in the Bastille area, which is a great area, quiet, nice with kids but still trendy in some places.
The parc des Buttes Chaumont is more in the North of Paris, it's nice too around there, but more popular. One of my sisters lives there.
There are so many great places in Paris, I'm sure you will love it :)

When are you guys to move to Paris?

Hi Anabelle! Thanks for letting me know. I don't know that we're moving yet, still more in the daydreaming phase than anything, but I'm getting ideas just in case. I'll look into your part of the city, and keep and eye on your blog :) Thanks again!

Lois gets more beautiful with each snipet of photos that we get to see. Happy 3 birthday!
