We started his celebration this past Thursday by meeting his Uncle Ryan and Aunt Hayley at Chick-fil-A for lunch and ice cream.
They surprised him with a huge castle and ogre. For a kid that doesn't love toys, he has played with this tons already. It is awesome. They are moving to Ohio and will really be missed by us.
On Friday, he had his school party. He was so excited about having his friends sing to him. He loved it!
When he returned home, we finished off his cupcakes. Why waste good cupcakes?
Later that day, we ate pizza and made more cupcakes with some of our friends. More singing. More celebrating. 3 is a big deal.
On Saturday, we planned a family pool party in Alex City. Then, the weather decided it was March again, but there were still cupcakes......and presents!
We were also celebrating my niece Chelsea's Birthday.
Finally, Sunday was his actual birthday. We all came into his room as soon as he woke up and started singing.
We sang again over orange rolls. Which are really even better than cupcakes to us.
Then..........Hudson's little body went into sugar overload. In fact, he still is trying to come down off this insane sugar high. 4 cupcake parties, 2 ice cream parties, orange rolls, and candy threw him for a crazy spell. I never even took any pictures of his birthday night with Ge and Pops because he was INSANE!
For instance, today at Publix, he threw my groceries out of the cart, busted a carton of yogurt onto the floor, squeezed out Clara's fruit squeezie on to the floor, and slammed her head against the cart. Sugar does not fair well with my little man. Lesson learned. I pray my little Huds returns to us soon.
Happy Birthday, Hudson! You are so loved.
