Birthday Festivities

Maizie's Big 3 was tons of fun. Last October, I was 7 months pregnant, we had just moved into our first house, Jason had gotten laid off and then started a new job, our second car stopped running and I was helping organize the ARTreach festival at our church. Needless to say, Maizie did not have much of a "2" celebration. I promised her (in my heart) we'd make it up to her. I'd say promise fulfilled! Mia's birthday is in November, but with Baby Ro #3 due to arrive right around Mia's 3rd birthday, we decided to do a little joint party at a pumpkin farm. Tanya made some yummy frito pie and wassel (sp?), which was perfect for the brisk weather we got.

Here's the rundown of the fun.

Looks like it was so much fun! Wish we could have been there to help celebrate! Can't believe we have 3 year olds!
