As many of you know, our trio babies had yet another birthday at the end of August, and they turned 8.
I really wish they would knock it off. :\
You know. The whole growing and growing and getting another year older thing.
I think it’s the food?
They eat a lot!! More than me. They love to eat. And eat. And eat.
And then they get bigger, and older, and smarter.
It seems to be a phenomenon of some sort.
I just wish they would stay little babies.
But, we always love a reason to celebrate!
And x3 is even better!
Which brings me to my excuse about all of the photos coming. Well you all know how many photos you take on your child’s birthday; with the cake, and the gifts or party, and what have you. So imagine having 3 to celebrate on the same day. My shutter finger is plum-tuckered-out by the end of the day! But it sure is fun! Anyway, I tried to be easy on you, and make some composites, so your scrolling finger didn’t get plum-tuckered out too. I also am diving up their birthday posts, so this is only the first post on their birthday, which may not be all that exciting, for you. But oh how it all was for them.
If you’ve been coming around here long enough, by now you know that a birthday-number breakfast just comes with the birth-day. It’s Daddy’s specialty.
They love pancakes. They had way more than their number. 😉 They had like…8 pancakes after they ate their number. And sausages. And juice.
They never ask for a thing for their birthday, except a balloon. At one point or another, each one of them says, “Do you think I can get a balloon on my birthday?”
It’s the least we can do.
But we do a little more. We’re simple people, but come on. Everyone deserves surprises on their birthday.
I can’t tell you how perfect these little kits were for each of them. They were thrilled. And have gotten a whole lot of fun out of them since.
Big sister had surprise gifts for them too. A little something she bought for each of them. Then, she also gave them her big Magnetix kit from when she was their age, that they have wanted so badly. (So, like a Yankee gift. Lol) She was so sweet, because we had no clue she had any of this stuff for them. She loves planning surprises.
We totally lucked out with the cake thing this year! They all really wanted the same kind of cake. “Coffee cake”, as they call it. It’s cinnamon struesel.
I resisted asking them, “Nothing with chocolate?? Are you sure?”
“PLEEEEASE!!?? ANYONE? “
It’s so easy to make these 3 happy. We could have been done right there. But……we had so much more in store for them for their special day. A big surprise we knew would really make their 8th birthday very memorable.
It’s all coming up, right here.
