Spencer had a birthday! He’s three!
Notice the lovely three in that picture.
I woke up early to feed Madison and finished right as all the other kids were waking up.

As I was crawling into bed I heard Brooke say, “Where are all the decorations?” Oops. I had forgotten to put up the happy birthday sign and to cut threes out of paper and hang them everywhere. When I woke up I saw that Brooke had taken matters into her own hands and had decorated for me. Bless her.

Happy birthday Spence!
