We picked up strawberries for Rachel to share with her preschool class as a treat, during which I discovered that Rachel doesn't really like strawberries. Oops :) However, she did get a big kick out of Mommy going to preschool with her, and out of her class singing her "Happy Birthday!"
I made tuna noodle casserole for supper, and since I'd had to do some errands, I picked up some of Rachel's choices for her favourite treats -- bear paws and Cheetos. (She might have been steered a teeny tiny bit towards the Cheetos!) Since I allowed her to indulge herself in treats after school she wasn't super-hungry for supper so we saved the special dessert for Wednesday night.
Rachel opened a really cool gift from my parents on Tuesday night, but because we were Facetiming them while she was opening it, we have no pictures. However, it will feature prominently at her birthday party tomorrow. We didn't let her open our present to her because it was pouring rain and we got her outside toys. So on Wednesday, the birthday celebrations continued.
"What do I spy in the bag?"
Rachel loves Franklin The Turtle so we got her the first book in the series. Most of the rest of them were handed down to us.

I think Rachel enjoyed her birthday celebrations, but for months she has been looking forward to her birthday party, which we are having tomorrow. So tune in next week to read more about Rachel turning three.
