New Birthday Tradition: Make it a ‘Yes’ Day

I’ve been in a fog a lot lately.Not sure why, but I can’t seem to snap out of it. I even almost forgot to plan George’s 3rd birthday party, even if it is a low-key birthday party.

Henry’s Semi Truck 4th Birthday Party

Happy Birthday Henry! Henry turned four over the weekend and had a great birthday party. I usually try to set out some sort of activity for the kids [mostly boys] to do on their own throughout the party. In the past, I’ve had play dough and markers. This time, I tried going with Henry’s “Semi” […]
