We decided to do a combination party,(since our oldest and youngest birthdays are TWO DAYS apart!), coming up with the theme: "It's Saturday, let's have a sundae and celebrate Luke and Sophie!"
We love traditions around here, what about you? Traditions are a way to teach your kids what you value. We value each other and are so grateful that God allows us raise these kids. So, we want to celebrate their birthdays in special ways. This doesn't mean going out and spending a lot; it's the little things that count and make things special.
Jacob, our youngest boy, commented to his cousin Wyatt, "We ALWAYS use this birfday banner". And, we do! That makes it memorable.
We also always write their name and what birthday it is for them on our chalkboard wall REALLY BIG. :)
Sophie LOVED her ice cream! And, by the way, her little shirt came from Wal-Mart! I just bought a solid yellow shirt and found and iron-on number 2 at Hobby Lobby for a dollar! Super easy and cute!
Luke needed a number shirt too! So, I found him an "8" at Hobby Lobby and just ironed it right on!
