The hockey stick, ball and puck. Yes, the puck is just a round cake and looks nothing like a puck, but you can convince a three year old of anything :) And we actually do have an orange hockey ball so that's good. The stick is a little sad, but if you saw what I had to deal with before it was frosted, this is a miracle. Should have taken a before picture!
Kieran joining along in a rousing "Happy Birthday!!"
Bridget wondering where her cake is :)
Kieran's present opening stance, lol! He opened most of his gifts in this position :)
A few cute kid stories:
The other day Riley was playing pretend. He had a hotel with a zoo in it and he was the zookeeper. I was a person coming to stay in the hotel and he asked me my name so I told him my name was Alice. He said, "nice to meet you, my name is John," and he shook my hand (so cute, I know). Kieran was there paying close attention so I asked him what his name was and he told me he was "different John", heehee! Maybe he'll have a better imagination now that he's three!
One night we were having supper with my parents and the salad had almonds in it. Riley picked up an almond and said that he was going to "make it a present for his mouth". LOL!
Bridget has her second top molar. She's also taken one step about three times now...just one :) She can stand for a long time by herself but is still hesitant to take those steps. I'm not in any hurry, I'm busy enough!! Besides, she's my last baby...those are my last first steps so I'd kind of like to savour them too...maybe she knows that.
Oh, one more. The other night we had bbq'd hamburgers for supper. Kieran now, amongst all his other picky habits, doesn't like anything barbecued because he doesn't like "black stuff" (and if you know how Kevin barbecues then there's very little avoiding that!). So, he wanted his hamburger without the meat. I took it off and he had a bun, a cheese slice and ketchup. Then he asked for a second hamburger, with no meat, lol! We call it a Kieran burger!
I haven't had much of chance to scrap lately with all the cleaning, party planning, baking. I'm hoping to get back into it this week!
