The Past Week

Guys, so much has been going on this past week!  I'm exhausted, relaxed, and happy.

First, we had Anna's birthday party.  She turned 3, and we decided to invite her entire daycare class thinking maybe 5 or 6 would come.  Somehow we ended up entertaining 20 toddlers and their parents!  Luckily we had rented out a space that could accommodate everyone.  We hosted the party at a local farm, so all the kids had a blast.  We played pin the tail on the donkey and horseshoes, we had delicious cupcakes, and everyone got to feed goats at the end.  Anna came home and slept for a long time.

That said, she now does not understand that not every party is for her birthday.  Sunday was my best friend's birthday.  When we told Anna, she got a little pouty and pointed to herself to say it was her birthday.  When a character in a book we're reading to her celebrated a birthday, she told us, "No.  My birthday!"  Ah, the joys of an only child.

In non-child news, did I mention we're expanding the kennel?  The big move in day is this Saturday, and I'm so excited.  It's really just an expansion of our grooming and training, but it will give us a lot more space to work, and it will allow us to have more than one groomer.  That's huge!  So, we're spending a lot of time prepping for the move in, and we're busy planning an open house, so that's all keeping us on our toes.  I'm a little nervous as to how everything will work out, but I have the feeling it will all go really well, even if there are a few hiccups along the way.

That said, I kind of have to get back to work.  So much to do, but I did want to give y'all an update!  Talk to ya soon!
