Well, today was Allyssa’s 3rd birthday. For me it’s hard to believe that she’s already 3 years old.
Yesterday we had a birthday party for Allyssa at Holland Park. Allyssa was asked what she’d like for a theme for her party (okay not quite in those terms but she asked), and she chose Thomas. Not much of a surprise there. While Shane was planning to make a Thomas the Train cake, he ran out of time.
We planned for about 30 people from the RSVPs we had received. And then the day of the party, we had about half that actually in attendance. Apparently things came up and some weren’t able to come. Such is the way life goes.
Allyssa received many gifts and loved them all, she received art supplies and an easel, play dough, bubbles with tons of wands, a collection of polished rocks, a doll house from grandma, and several Thomas trains among other things.
Today, we just had a quiet family day (well after Shane finished work that is).
