We don’t do huge birthday parties, or lots of presents for birthdays, but we have chose to pick a day and let it be completely about them. From what they want to eat for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, to picking out their birthday cake (either store bought or homemade), to where they want to go for the day, and who they want to spend it with. Elisha wanted to spend a day at Nana’s orchard, swimming in the little pool and running in the sprinklers with his sisters. So we did just that. He also chose for me to make him cheesecake (Chocolate mint topped with homemade peppermint patties- his favorite). He concluded it was the best day ever.
