My husband and our seventh child, Stephen, share the same birthday - July 24th - though they are separated by 31 years. You can read about that here.
At age 3, Stephen is into boy stuff, and likes dressing up as a racecar driver, a construction worker, or a fireman - or sometimes a bit of all three at once. Sometimes he demands, "Don't call me Stephen, call me [insert pretend character of the day]!" It's so cute, and it brings back memories of when the older boys were little.
Becky got him this tool set, which he loves
Playing with the toy cars from John
Miriam sewed this book for him by herself. He loves it and takes it to bed with him every day.
This construction themed set of plate and cutlery was another huge hit.
Birthday breakfast of pancakes, syrup, fresh strawberries, and maple syrup.
This racecar driver costume used to be John's, but is currently Stephen's favorite.
My two handsome men
Ticket to Ride is one of our favorite games, and my husband is all about India these days, learning one of their languages and such. So I figured he might like this extension set.

That night, we had a board game night at church, which was great fun. Many thanks to those who sent birthday wishes, cards, and even gifts. It was a great day all around.
