Happy Birthday Daniel!

We celebrated Daniel's third birthday Saturday with a "Speed Racer" party. He originally asked for a Prince Philip party, then Spiderman, then Go, Diego, Go, and I think there were a few others. I had to put my foot down once we bought the Speed Racer plates!
The race track cake - this one only had me up until 11:30
the night before, a big improvement compared to
some of the other birthday cakes I've done.He smiled like this the whole time we sang Happy Birthday. Don't ask why he's wearing a Cinderella dress
(actually anyone who knows Daniel shouldn't be surprised!) Of course, he's already planning next year's party!

Cousin Time

Olivia and Daniel got to play with Emmanuel last weekend. He really liked their slide! We are all so glad that he, Uncle Tristaan, and Tia Maria are going to be here for a while!
Olivia, Emmanuel, Jaylin and Daniel, all in the sandbox. Good thing Eleanor isn't big enough to play yet - we couldn't
possibly fit one more in!

Eleanor at 8 Weeks Old

I haven't been able to get a good smiling picture yet, hopefully I'll have one to post soon. The jury's still out on who she looks more like, Olivia or Daniel. Personally I think she just looks like Eleanor now.

First Day of School - September 2nd

Here's Olivia headed off to her first day of Kindergarten. She was really excited, and only a little bit nervous. Dan was on vacation for the week so all five of us walked to school that morning. I can't believe my baby is in real school!
Here she is in line with her class, ready to go into the building.
So far Kindergarten is going great!
