My Baby is 3!

When you first have kids people try to tell you how quickly they grow up. It's hard to believe until you actually experience it though. Yesterday our youngest turned 3! He seems so grown up now! :-)

We managed to pull his birthday together for very little outlay this year which is helpful in our current situation.

For his presents he got:

* ride on tractor - DH managed to wheel and deal it as a "freebie" with a bigger purchase earlier in the year.
* fireman dress up set - bought from Cheap as Chips about 18 months ago and stashed in the cupboard
* fireman book - left over from my Learning Ladder sales kit
* 2 T-shirts - bought in September for his summer wardrobe
* packet of white freddo frogs - the only outlay of money I really made for this birthday

The cake was homemade and assisted me in my "use it up" challenge as I had some bits and pieces (lollies etc) from other decorating projects in the past 12 months. Also reused a Winnie the Pooh cake decoration that one of the other kids had.

I think he ended up having quite a good day.
