Shortly after our move to Lubbock, Abby celebrated her 7th birthday (July 27). Since we were new to the area and Abby hadn't met very many people yet, we celebrated her birthday just as a family. It was a nice day and Abby was thrilled with her presents.
Before we left New York, Grace Petrucci insisted that Abby have her annual pool party with her friends. It was wonderful for Abby to have a chance to spend time with and say goodbye to many of her friends. She was even brave enough to slide down the slide! Go Abby!
Our next birthday was Emma's on September 27th. She turned two years old! She was super excited to open her presents and was even more excited when she realized what was in the boxes. She received a doll stroller, a new doll, and a doctor kit.
Here is our 2 year old birthday girl!
Just a few days later on October 6, Michael turned 4! He is growing up so much! He wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cake. For the first time, his egg-free, dairy-free cake actually came out of the mold without crumbling to bits. He was super excited with the final result!
It is amazing to me to watch these three grow. They are so full of life and energy. We love them so much and are grateful to be their parents!
