I posted several years ago that we celebrate birthweeks, not just birthdays. Sometimes I think it gets kinda outta hand but then I say..what the heck!!! Why not celebrate as long as you can. Right?
Sam's Birthday actually fell on a Saturday so I think that's why it seemed to stretch from Thursday to Sunday! Party Thursday, Shannon and I finished shopping for his gifts on Friday, lunch with friends on Saturday and we gave him his gifts, dinner with just the 5 of us on Saturday night, and lunch with Nana and Papa (Shan's parents) on Sunday after church. THEN we had his Celebration of Life (explained here) at school on Monday!
WHEW! Momma was wo' out!
But I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my boys...I quietly celebrate all three of them every single day. They are they greatest gifts of my life!
What could it be?
A new helmet and ALL the safety gear...Mommy's favorite part!
