We don't talk about the ground hog. Instead, we talk about birthday girls. After all, what birthday girl wants to talk about a 4-legged rodent on her big day?
Also, we don't watch much (if any) of the super bowl, because we are too busy with birthday parties and such.
This was a big birthday weekend in our family. Two birthday parties. Our daughter and our niece were born on the same day -- six years apart. Giving each girl her own "party space," we celebrated with our niece on Saturday, and for our daughter on Sunday.
Super Bowl Sunday is typically the day that we schedule our family gathering to celebrate our daughter's birthday. This year after everyone left, I chuckled and said the neighbors probably wonder why we have a super-bowl party every year, and everyone leaves BEFORE the game.... (Because all of the birthday gifts have been opened, and all of the cake and cupcakes have been eaten, and the icing licked off our fingers - duh!)
So, yes, we birthday-partied. And what a party it was. Celebrating 14 years of pure joy! We enjoyed a new Pinterest recipe for a birthday cake (I'll tell you about that another time). There were camera lessons (of some sort, I heard) and lots of Leapster-Explorer-sharing in the living room.
One lucky cousin even got to take a purse home!
Looking forward: It's week SIX of the 52 Weeks to a More Organized Home. This week we're learning about a home recycling center, and how to handle trash. Do you recycle? I'm headed over to Taylor's Home Storage Solutions 101 next to see if our family is doing things the most efficient way, or if there are things we could be doing better. More about that later in the week.
HAPPY MONDAY. Have a great week.
