Three Years Old

Birthdays are a really big deal in our family. I have tried hard to establish traditions that the children can look forward to year after year on their special day.  I love spending the day affirming the birthday kid and showering them with extra love and treats. Here is Dominic's day in pictures:

The night before the birthday, after the kids go to bed, I transform the kitchen by breaking out the birthday tablecloth and banner.  I also display the cake, or in this case race car cupcakes, and surround them with the birthday presents and kid's favorite candies.  The kids also receive a special birthday balloon, which is attached to the birthday seat of honor!

Dominic's present:  The Little Tikes Grill.  I bought it probably 7 months ago on sale for 24.99.  It was a steal!!


Anxiously awaiting present time!

The traditional birthday pancake.  His is shaped like a 3 since that is what age he turned!

I don't have any pictures, but another part of the day is being able to pick all the meals.  The kids also get a special date.  Dominic chose a McDonald's Happy Meal date.  The two big kids are at VBS all week, so we had an extra special date with daddy and were able to eat Downtown!!  For dinner Dominic decided on tacos!!


Extra special ice-cream treat.  Dominic has severe food allergies (dairy, egg, peanut).  He always begs for ice-cream, but the dairy free kind is SO SO expensive.  Tonight I splurged and he had chocolate almond ice-cream. 

Tuckered out from the long, but fun day!!

                              We love you, Dominic Vianney!!!
