Geno's 3rd Birthday

For Geno's birthday today, we took him to McDonalds for lunch which is his favorite place in the whole world. He was able to play in the jungle gym and slide down the slide with his big sister Coretta and his friend Michael. He was having so much fun, he didn't want to leave.

Sledding for the First Time this Year

During the morning, we went sledding down the street in the neighborhood. Last year Geno couldn't handle the snow or the cold, but this year he completely embraced the idea. Once to the hill, which took some navigation on Geno's part (due to all of the layers which threw him off balance) we made it to the top. We sat Geno on the sled first and then Coretta sat behind them and off they went giggling the whole way down. Climbing up the hill each time proved difficult, but the more times he did it, the better he became. Finally, he decided that he didn't even need a sled, and that his butt served the purpose just fine. Using his legs he would push himself down the hill trying to catch up with Coretta. I then showed Geno how to take the snow in your hands and pack it in the form of a snowball. He found this quite fascinating and enjoyed making and throwing snowballs down the hill.

Here's a video of Geno trying to climb the sledding hill:

Now it is Coretta's turn:

Opening Geno's Birthday Gifts

Tonight we are making Geno's requested dinner which is mummy dogs (hot dogs with biscuit dough around them) and french fries followed up with homemade chocolate cake and ice cream. And of course who could forget the presents from Mommy, Daddy, Coretta, Grandma and Grandpa Earnest, and Grandma Marilyn. All in all, it was a fabulous day for turning three years old. We love you Geno!
