Yesterday was Allison's 3rd birthday party. A good time was had by all, I think. The grown-ups played Rock Band and the kiddos basically just ran around like maniacs. I crimped Allison's hair for the party, so that was hilarious. It made for an especially nice effect when she jumped off the bed and her hair was flying everywhere. By bedtime the M&Ms, cake, ice cream and Kool-Aid (all blue, of course) had worn off and she crashed hard. The day ended with her sitting on the kitchen floor babbling and crying about nothing in particular. She fell asleep pretty quickly and slept until almost 9:30 this morning. And when she woke up, the first thing she asked for was another cupcake. Doh!
Also, Elizabeth did her version of Granddad's Ed Grimley impression last night.

I am now officially a small business owner. dumplindesigns.etsy.com opened last week and I've already made one sale! I mainly started it because I embroidered more onesies than Elizabeth could possibly wear, so I figured I'd try to make some money. I have lots more ready to go but I am waiting for permission from the company that designed the images I worked from. Hopefully I'll hear from them in the next week and then I can list a bunch more.

Today is Allison's 3rd Birthday. We didn't do much, the "big" party is on Sunday. Today we had lunch with Daddy and then went to the party store (or the Birthday Store, as Allison called it) and bought supplies for Sunday. We are having a "blue" party- She loves blue and said she wanted her party to be blue. So of course she wanted to buy everything in Party City that was blue. I managed to keep her to the necessities- cups, plates, napkins... and a blue Tootsie Pop. When she said good night tonight she thanked me for giving birth to her. She was coached by Tim to say it, but it was funny anyway. The actual to-the-minute anniversary of her birth is about 2 hours away. Time flies!

Tim and I bought the game Rockband for the X-Box this weekend. We have finally found a game we both enjoy and that he is willing to play! We're on tour and so far we've played Seattle and Los Angeles, with New York, Chicago, and San Francisco coming soon. I'm the guitarist and Tim (using his stage name Pug Rocksworth) plays bass. We rock.
Hmmmm.... There's this thing called pregnancy brain- It makes you a little bit forgetful. Apparently I had it when I started this blog last year. That potential pregnancy I posted about is now my 11 week old daughter Elizabeth! So now this blog will be for updates about the girls, and various other goings on!
