Olivia's 3rd birthday

No, Olivia is not turning 3 now. She turned 3 about half a year ago back in November. In fact, it was November 26th and since it fell on a weekday, it meant that it was a school day for her.

Here's a closer look at the two cakes. We of course got Dora cakes, since that's her favorite cartoon now. The cake on the right has Olivia's English name, while the cake on the left has her Chinese name. Cakes were made by
