Birthday Shopping




Hubby and I are going birthday shopping tonight. It's always an expensive time of year since our two oldest share a birthday. The one thing I have been expecting since my second oldest was born has begun. Lexi, who will be 12 no longer wants to have her party with Mikayla. I understand it. I have expected it and waited for it, though I had hoped maybe they would never care. See, to me? I think it's so special to share a birthday with your sister. Ok. Well, it is special to me because they are my babies and as far as I am concerned that day is special to me because twice I gave birth on that day. I was given two wonderful gifts! Now, they are of course at the perfect age to want their parties separate. We are going after school today to get presents for them and the girls think I am all excited about it. The truth?

I am excited about getting alone time with daddy!

Having just had alone time, revel in it. It is so sweet.

My boys don't share the same birthday, but we've begun combining their parties. At this age they love it, and while I know it won't last forever, it is so sweet to watch them celebrate each other and all of their friends together.
