Anne Turns Three

Am I three?

The first thing she said to us on Friday morning.

Anne had an epic birthday party yesterday. First her grandparents came over for a bit before we all piled in the car and drove over to Safari Run. We finished unloading the car right before the aunts, uncles, and friends started arriving. Despite weeks of hand-wringing on my part, the strategy of inviting our family, friends, and her entire school worked out perfectly and we had a wonderful group show up to celebrate. I think she had a fantastic time all the way through and was so pumped when it was over that she couldn’t nap or fall asleep until her regular bedtime.

Thanks again to everyone who helped make Anne’s party a success. She was looking forward to it for months. :)

Chez Anne

  • Her: Daddy, you’ve never had one of these before but it’s really good.
  • Me: I’ve never had what, a raisin?

She makes a sandwich out of two Cheerios and a raisin.

  • Her: This!

(It really was quite good.)
