Today was Naomi's third birthday and we had a grand time.  She gave everyone a present, Hobbit style, by sleeping in until 7:15.  Anne frantically finished her dress (see below) while I fed her and cleaned the house a bit. At 10:00 am the brunch/lunch party started.  In attendance in addition to us were, Nana and Grampy (my parents),  Papa and Grandma (Anne's parents), Uncle Brent and Aunt Sarah with Cousins Grace and Margot, and Aunt Laura with Cousin Grant.  Naomi was the belle of the ball in the beautiful dress that Anne made.  We had coffee and Naomi played and watched shows.  At 11:30 lunch was served.  Pulled pork sandwiches, beef brisket, mac and cheese, coleslaw and baked beans from Mel's, a local bbq joint.  It was delicious.  Then we opened presents with Naomi.  From mom and dad, some books including the brand new That's not my Elephant book (thanks Usbourne)  to complete the series, and a light up lantern.  From Papa and Grandma some christmas music (hopefully naomi will like one song).  From Nana and Grampy some wobble toys and a snowsuit and other clothes (which we dressed her in and then she threw up on it 5 seconds later).  From Auntie Laura and Uncle Jimmy an adopted grizzly bear (her name sake) and from the Anderson crew a Matruska Doll (sp?).   We had lady bug cake and ice cream and Naomi proceeded to not like icing.  After more swinging and shows, Naomi busted up the party by trying to fall asleep.  A splendid time was had by all!  Thanks!
