Moon’s birthday isn’t until Wednesday, but we had her party on Sunday with her BFF, Jemi. The girls are getting bigger now, TEN, so we kept it simple. A few games at Mountasia, then off to Jeanette’s house for the girls to play wii, eat dinner, and have birthday brownies.
Jemi got a puppy for her birthday. Best. Present. Ever. The girls kept disappearing to the bathroom to puppy-sit. I think you can tell that the puppy was thrilled with all of the attention.
Just Dance was also a big hit. I had to watch for a long time to get a photo where most of them were doing the same thing.
Every year, Jeanette and I struggle with what to give as a birthday favor. The girls are too big for toys, and most of the stuff they make is junk anyway. I found this 3-D photo idea online and we thought it was cute. Also, cheap. Moon and Jemi were born four days apart ensuring that Jeanette and I will split the cost of everything associated with their parties for as long as we can get by with it.
If you’re having a birthday soon, feel free to use any of these ideas. And also to join our birthday club. We’d be happy to split the cost THREE ways.
