Happy Birthday Hudson!

Hudson turned three! And so it's only right that he got 3 birthday cakes in one week, right?!?

A cake with his cousins (homemade and decorated with love by his Auntie Sue-Poo and Romy)

A cake with his Nanny and Bobby (two little green froggies)

A chocolate cake with his Halmonie and Hadabogi

On a chocolate cake sugar high!

Cake(s), presents, and balloons...he really couldn't have asked for anything more.

The best things in life are free

Life has been challenging lately. And by challenging...I mean an awful, depressing, ugly roller-coaster of a ride (that's a whole other post in itself, and one that I'm not ready to write yet).

And then I got a birthday present that made me realize how lucky I am.

Hudson and I were playing at the park together on my Birthday. Hudson was digging in the sand. He pulled out a rock, stared at it, dusted it off, and then handed it to me. He told me he was giving it to me because it looked like a heart. Awwwwwww...a cold stone heart melted my broken one. It is without a doubt the best birthday present I have ever gotten. I told him I loved it, and would keep it forever. I totally mean it. (Except I've only had it less than a week, and already almost lost it...Rob found must have fallen out of my jacket pocket).

The Three Little Pigs

One of his latest favorite games...

is to reenact the story of the Three Little Pigs. We take turns being the big bad wolf.

"Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in"

"Not by the hair on our chinny chin chin"

"Then I'll huff and I'll puff (although Hudson always says "huff" again) and I'll blow your house in"
