So how do we celebrate three birthdays that take place in the span of one week?
Dinner and DessertBirthday Kid chooses the dinner and dessert menu for their birthday. This is their chance to really have what they want for dinner. Here are this year's choices.
- Big Sister, age 10: Velveeta Shells and Cheese with apple pie. (A side note: It has probably been two or three years since we had Shells and Cheese. She hasn't forgotten it!)
- Brother, age 8: Andre's Pizza with peanut butter swirl brownies.
- Little Sister, age 5: Cheeseburgers and a giant cookie cake. This is incredibly easy and delicious!
The kids don't have parties every year. In fact, Big Sister turns ten this month and she's having her second friend party. (Her first party was a Little House party.) When the Birthday Kid has a party, they get to help choose a theme and activities. Last year, Brother had a LEGO party. (And no, I didn't blog about it.) Big Sister chose a Star Wars theme for this year.
All of our family lives hours away, so we don't have a family party. However, my mother-in-law visits every year for a birthday. (Often my father-in-law joins us, too.)
We try to keep it simple while celebrating the children's uniqueness!
What's your favorite way to celebrate a birthday?
