So, by now you should know that the end of month is like Christmas for us. All three kids have birthdays in the same week. So of course it began with Megan.
I actually didn't get to be with Megan on her birthday. This is the third year I have not actually been with Megan on her birthday. Globals is always during her birthday. So the first year I was at Globals with Emilee, then the next year Megan was at Globals and then this year I was at Globals with Emilee again. It will probably be like that again if either one of them wins next time also. So, she celebrated with Jeremy, her grandma and Hunter. As you can see, they gave her cinnamon rolls.
She turned 14 years old today. It is very hard to believe that she is really that old and that I am old enough to have a fourteen year old. I am still in denial. This year instead of going out to try and find something for her, Jeremy gave her $100 in cash. I guess when she opened the card, she thought it was just a $20 until she opened it more and kept counting 20's. She was quite surprised.
Hunter was next. He turned 10 years old this year. I took him and a few friends ice skating on his request. Two of the boys had never gone before. They struggled at the beginning but they made it through and actually enjoyed themselves. Afterwards I took them to the pizza place called Stevie B's and let them play some games. It was a very easy birthday for me.
Of course he also had to celebrate with the family and his favorite dinner is Pesto pasta. We call it green spaghetti.
And ever since Hunter had a GiGi cupcake, he now has an aversion to frosting and just wanted a batch of brownies instead. Again, pretty easy!
I can't believe my youngest is 10 now. Man, the time does go by fast.
And then finally, the last birthday is Emilee. She turned 12 this year. Maleficent came out on her birthday and asked if she could take a few friends to go see it. How could I say no. Another easy one for me. Here they all are in front of the movie theater all sweet and cute.
And this is how we moms see them. Crazy, crazy and more crazy.
After the movie, I took them to get frozen yogurt. I sat at the next table and pretended I didn't know them. I think they all felt big.
Emilee also celebrated with the family. Her favorite meal is chicken and rice
...and she has no problem with frosting. 12 years old and going to middle school. She will be my girly, girl all the way. She loves clothes, nail polish, make up and shoes. She never thinks she can have enough shoes.
Happy Birthday kids! Hope your year is fantastic!
