Three years old

Today our baby boy turns three years old. He is growing up so fast. I say it a lot, but time does fly, especially with the second child. P. is so sweet, yet so stubborn, and all boy. We are so thankful that God made us his parents.

This morning we celebrated with the traditional train cake, though this year's was chocolate instead of vanilla, and opened a few presents. The rest of the day will be planned by P. I have a feeling we'll be visiting a few trains and may see a movie.

What do you do...

When your feet are cold while you are decorating the Christmas tree? Put on a couple of stockings, of course.

Happy Birthday to you...

Happy Birthday to K, only a week late. Last Saturday she celebrated her SIXTH birthday. It's so hard to believe she is six so soon. This year we took the kids to Disney as their birthday gifts and celebrated every day while we were there, so we are not hosting the string of parties that typically fill our December. Instead, K. got to pick what she wanted to do for the day. She chose to take her best friend, Kee, with her for a manicure, lunch and a movie. I was very much looking forward to such a fun girls day, and then the stomach virus hit me and I had to miss it all and most of the following four days (it was a very bad virus!). So, K. had a great "girls day" with her daddy, who graciously took his princess, Kee and P. for a manicure and on to lunch and a movie. K. had a great time, but I was very sad to have missed out on such a special day for her. I was able to crawl out of bed Monday to pick up cupcakes (there was no way I was baking and spreading the germs) and that night we all sang and she made her birthday wish for the year. Let's hope next Saturday brings a less eventful birthday for P.

A Good Citizen

K. received the good citizen award for her class at the PTO meeting last Thursday. We're so proud and so blessed to have such a caring child.
