My daughter celebrated her 3rd birthday this month. We hosted a birthday party at home for her with many friends and family. It was a wonderful afternoon with a petting zoo and loads of good food. My daughter had an amazing afternoon. She could have cared less about her presents, but my son was more than happy to open all of them for her! We also attended many friends and family birthday parties. I turned the eternal 39 as well in September. Quite uneventful I might add! My son is thriving at school and making new friends. He is beginning to read and his math skills are amazing. He is also learning French! My daughter began two art classes and a gymnastic class this month. My son began a computer class and continues his Kumon lessons. Baby is growing fast, laughing and smiling and getting chubby! My husband is very busy at work.
