Soulie’s 3! Glow got a Rody for her birthday and ever since then, all the girls have been loving it. If you never heard of a Rody, it’s a little bouncing horse for kids. When we asked Soul what she wanted for her birthday, she said she wanted her own Rody. We showed her a picture of all the colors and she picked black. Thus, we knew throwing a mini rodeo was the perfect plan to celebrate her turning 3!
Ben and I got up early to prep her mini party, since it was in the morning, we broke tradition and she didn’t get breakfast in bed. We made waffles, I finished making the cake, which I started the night before, and did the party decorating (the backdrop was painted the night before). Then when the girls woke up, we let them watch a little something just until our little surprise for her was ready. We got all the girls dressed up in our closest rodeo attire, I found Soul’s vintage overalls on etsy and I knew that little Rody-ish looking character would be perfect for her birthday outfit.
Soul was so happy to finally get her black Rody! The big girls were super excited that even they got surprises! Glow could care less about anything and all she wanted were the waffles. They got little cowboy hats, coordinating bandannas, and then we got the party started. We served them some pumpkin waffles (thanks to the Trader Joe boxed mix) with whipped cream and syrup (we loaded up on that sugar!). Of course Soul got her Happy Birthday sung with a pumpkin and chocolate chip cake. That girl loves all things sugary so I knew this was all right up her alley.
After they ate, we set up a little obstacle course with some little baskets and the girls got on their Rodys and were bouncing around racing each other. Glow still didn’t care about that and just kept on eating waffles. It was a good morning of celebrating and Soulie was one happy little cowgirl.
I can’t believe my little Soulie is 3! Or as she says, “Fwee!” She’s a firecracker and someone else recently described her as the little ringleader. That sounds about right. She’s the moody one and you never know which Soul you’re gonna get… sweet or feisty! That little girl keeps all of us on our toes and we love her so much. Plus, how can we resist her big, little teethy smiles?! It’s so cute! Happy Birthday Soulie!!! We love you!!!
