Happy Birthday sweetie!

Three years.. WOW. It was a fun day… a bounce house (that she stayed in nearly all day), a few friends from preschool and her cousins, and a friend of mine and her daughter… cake, presents… and a late nap in the car on the way home.  It went well and she had a blast.  […]

Countdown to her Birthday

Five more days, and my baby will turn three years old.  Wow, time flies! I invited four of her friends from school, so far one has RSVP’d, but I did give the invitations a bit late (last Wednesday), so I pretty much expected to not hear from anyone until this week.  The one child who […]

Her upcoming 3rd Birthday Party

It’s quickly starting to look like Chuck E Cheese would’ve been the cheaper route, but we’re non-conformists, dang it!  Just because the other two kids had parties there, doesn’t mean we should, too.

Going to another birthday party

And it is again at Chuck E Cheese.  I am going to give the Kiddo some vitamins over the next few days to hopefully ward off whatever bugs are lurking at the pizza place.  I should have been gearing her up prior but I’m forgetful like that.  Bad mommy!

Countdown to Christmas

Only a couple of days left – are you done shopping? We are, with the exception of some sodas for the holiday party and a few other food items. But as of yesterday our gift shopping is complete, I had two things left to pick up and I was able to get those, one of […]

Countdown calendar

Yesterday my husband came up with the idea of making a countdown calendar for the Kiddo, to help her see how many days are left before she gets her presents.  Every single day she asks, “my presents?”, so she grasps the concept that she’ll be getting to open presents, however she doesn’t quite get that […]

Christmas Day will be quite interesting

The Kiddo is already super excited to see all of the different Christmas decorations that the stores are putting up for sale already.  W@l-M@rt has a tall Christmas Tree at each entrance with huge red & green unbreakable ornaments on them, and she always MUST go and look and inspect (and touch!!) the tree and […]

Picture Day

It’s picture day at her preschool today.  They did this earlier this year back in the spring, and those pictures turned out pretty well despite the fact that we totally missed the announcements about picture day and she wasn’t wearing anything special that day. LOL Today I dressed her in a red shirt and a […]

Holiday shopping for a toddler

Well, I guess she’s not quite a toddler anymore, I mean she’ll be three in January. When the ToysRUs big toy book came in the mail, we gave it to her to look through to try to gauge what she may be interested in having for Christmas and her birthday. The big hit was the […]

Ready for Halloween?

Yesterday we went to a local farm that has a fesitval every fall (I’ll post a few pix later this week), and afterwards we went to my brother-in-law’s house to hang out and let the kids play.  BIL’s wife wanted to go get her daughter’s Halloween outfit and asked if I wanted to go along, […]
