It came and went again, and this year was bigger and better than ever. We decided to skip having official parties and to just do whatever the kids wanted the day of their birthday. They had both chosen themes, so I bought some things to decorate and make it fun to wake up to. Zara was great because we had to wake her up (she had a “mermaid” breakfast party) and all she said she wanted was donuts. How easy is that!?
Jude…not so much. He wanted an “original Star Trek” party with pizza for breakfast, before going fishing. Joel and I had it all planned out and alarms set for 6:30, but Jude jumped in our bed at 5:36am and said loudly, “I’m NINE now!” and thus began one of the longest days of our lives.
We ate pizza, we fished, we survived. Now the little two are talking about what they want to do for their birthdays even though they are six months away!
