On Celebrating Birthdays

We had quite the busy week celebrating Zoelle and Meridian! Phew! Never did I imagine having the girl's birthdays just two years and one day apart from each other. This year we decided rather than have a birthday party now, we wanted to wait and have a joint party in June so we can celebrate Xiomara's birthday then too. Yes, I am cheating a bit doing all three on one day. As they get older I won't do that. But this year, for their actual party, we are getting it done in one day. We do celebrate each of their actual birthdays together as a family, but for the extended family and friends, I do a birthday party.

I tend to go all out on birthdays as I figure it is once a year and truly want to celebrate them. Last year our theme was rainbows. This year because of our love of books, we are having a The Very Hungry Caterpillar party. Currently, I am looking at either making my own cake for it, or having one made. I still can't decide, so if you happen to have any ideas, feel free to send them my way!

When it comes to birthday cards, I know I can always turn to Shutterfly to help me out. I also know that if I need thank you cards, they are the place to go! At the end of each year, I order a photo book for each girl so they have those memories forever. This year, I'm hoping to see some awesome cake eating pictures from the three little girls whom I adore!
