One of the reasons I originally started this blog was so that I had a memory keeper. I had no idea anyone would actually read it. Sometimes I love to look back to see how much my boys have grown since I started this little blog 6 years ago. I just might want to post a little bit of what it was like around here during the celebrations of our lives, so please humor me (smile.) Both boys and I all share birthdays within the span of 10 days, so it's usually a birthday extravaganza for that week and a half. We tend to eat a little too much, and hopefully have as much fun. Here is a glimpse into how we celebrated this year.
We usually have a birthday party where I have fun decorating. We never invite a ton of people, but it's always more relaxing that way.
The boys are really into the BBC show Doctor Who, so that was our theme this year.
A lot of these references would make absolutely no sense if you had never watched the show, but this was all about my boys.
This isn't really fish by the way :) It's lady fingers and pudding.
There are many different characters that the Doctor encounters on the show.
This is Lady Cassandra who, trust me, you would rather not meet.
Every year we have a pin a "something" on the something. This year we pinned Lady Cassandra's face on her "body."
One of the boys asked his mom on the way, "Do you think the party will be like last year?" She thought he was asking if all the same people would be there. He meant he was hoping there would still be a fun gift for him. Of course there was!
This is my handsome 14 year old. Every year we usually make a special breakfast and dinner. This year we went out for breakfast to one of Aedan's favorite places for chocolate chip and peanut butter pancakes. His requested dinner was hoison beef stir fry and snap peas.
Of course there was a cake just for him on his special day.
One set of grandparents took them out to Mexican Food, and the other set took them out for burgers and shakes. See what I mean? Our family might like to eat more than celebrate!
Silas requested coconut fried chicken and honeyed strawberries for his birthday meal.
Every year he also requests a chocolate chip cookie cake.
Make a wish!
