Celebrating birthdays that is.
I would love to have done birthdays yesterday but seeing as today is my mum's birthday then we had to go with today and so 'celebrating ' for 'C' it became.
Happy Birthday mum, hope you have a great day.
I am a big one for sending cards. Even though the world has embraced modern technology you still can't beat writing in a card that you have chosen for the person, handwriting the sign off and if you are my 2 little boys adding half a page of 'O' and 'X's'.
I do have several people that I only keep in contact with via electronic systems and so I do have a website I send cards from Jacqui Lawson. They are cute British cards, well drawn and designed.
As with other things on birthdays I do also insist that you must have a cake.
I have been lucky up till now in that my 2 have never asked for a particularly weird and wild design, they have always been happy with plain simple round cakes.
Alex wanted Ben 10 one year, so I did the usual round cake added greeny white icing and 2 figurines of Ben 10 and an alien, he loved it, was so happy with it.
I did however go all out, my choice, last year for Ben's 8th birthday and I made him a cake in the shape of an '8', he loved it but he never asked for it.
Do you do anything special each year for birthdays?
