Three years old is the age when kids first start to understand that it is their birthday. Carson was so excited that it was his birthday and that he would be getting presents. One night I heard him in bed singing Happy Birthday to himself. It is so cute! We first celebrated his birthday with family at Chuck-E-Cheese. Carson and his cousins had so much fun. We could have stopped there and Carson would have been great. But of course this was the year I decided to do a big birthday party. It was work but it was worth it!! More to come on that later.
