This past week we celebrated another birthday in our family. Another simple birthday.
Somehow over the past eight years we have managed to avoid having big birthday parties. And somehow we have managed to create our own fun traditions that our girls love and look forward to.
This year our oldest had the option of having a friend party, but in the end, she chose to celebrate her birthday with one of her buddies by going to the aquarium. Her birthday was on Wednesday, and she really, really wanted all the celebrating to take place on her actual birthday.
This one is our lego lover, so at the beginning of the month I decorated our mantel in her honor. She even helped by making the letters for me.
She loved all the frames and numbers and other creations we came up with. Personally, I thought they were pretty cool myself.
In addition to planning the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the birthday girl got to design and decorate her own cake. We found these lego candies and candles and put them in her stocking for Christmas.
