Our little guy has turned 3. Showing how old you are with your fingers can be tricky.
He's been working on it all week.
Of course he got his favorite foods today. PB&J for lunch.
Once Meadow got home from school we let him open his gifts. I got him some waterproof mittens which weren't very exciting to open.
Meadow and I picked him up a foam sword and shield that almost looks like the master sword from Zelda.
This was way more exciting.
They picked out the perfect gift for him. He has been using Meadow's sword or sticks and making his own shield out of found objects.
Now the kids can choose between lightsabers and swords.
We loved Meadow's ice cream cake so we had to get one for Theo too.
From Sebastian Joe's if you don't know. Meadow had a Nicollet Pothole Cake. For Theo's birthday we tried the oreo one.
He needed help blowing out his candles.
The cake was basically a fancier version of the classic Dairy Queen Cake. If I had a choice I'd pick the Nicollet Pothole cake next time.
Meadow is the lucky kid who gets birthday parties every year whereas Theo's are a little more low key. This year we decided to do a private theater rental. Movie theaters are offering private rentals at a discount to get more people to visit so we took advantage of that deal.
Theo doesn't have any kids his age in our friend circle, so small affairs are the norm.
Theo has never been to a movie before so this was a perfect first experience. He kept changing seats throughout the movie.
It was fun and the movie was just as good the second time.
Video games have taken over our household.
I tried getting us outside, but Brooke was still crabby from Meadow not wanting to go ice skating.
No, it was three times that I was turned down for different outdoor adventures.
I've given up getting upset about it and instead found plenty of projects to do.
Today was going through our old files. We had been hanging onto old tax paperwork for the last 10 years.
Meadow and I recently bought a crystal sun-catcher for the front and our bedroom. A simple way to add joy with little rainbows in your room.
