Hear yee, Hear yee!  Princess Charlotte turned three this past Sunday at the San Marcos Resort in Chandler.  This little girl is very special.   Charlotte, named after the eight-legged barn spider in the book, Charlotte’s Web, entered the world as beautiful as ever, with a cleft lip, and incredibly loved.  She had surgery early on and you can barely notice the small scar above her lip.  She’s full of energy, she’s incredibly smart (mom used to be a teacher) and she wants to be a Princess, of course!

Every year Charlotte celebrates a birthday, all gift donations go to Barrow Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Saint Joseph’s Hospital.  It’s just another way for Charlotte and her family to give back.   Charlotte’s story is so important that mom and dad have mentored couples who find out their child will be born with a cleft lip.

All this to say, this lovely little Princess deserves a fun, whimsical, third birthday at the San Marcos Resort in Chandler!  The day was filled with lots of pink, Princess things, sugar and cupcakes, and crowns, of course.  Oh, and you can’t forget the real life Princess who came to read to them (she used to be Cinderella at Disneyland!) Happy Birthday Charlotte, to many more!

Diana Elizabeth’s earliest memory was on her third birthday.  She remembers sitting in a high chair and to her left was a Rainbow Brite.  Of course, how could you forget something like that when you’re three?
