Birthday celebrating

The kids get a "birthday box" filled with goodies from Grandpa and Grandma Neir for their birthdays. Avery was ready to go to it as soon as she got home from school. We quickly took the knife from her right after the picture before she cut a finger off! I think i had a mild heart attack during the two swipes she did take while i was taking a picture! Not sure why she was given that big of a knife!

Avery loves the fact that she was born on her Uncle Rodney's birthday. They have celebrated together several different times. We didn't plan it this year but their family was going out to eat abd we were to so we decided to meet up. (we didn't tell avery) Grandpa and Grandma Seaba came too along with Uncle Duane and Aunt Denise. Avery was surprised and thrilled and said "it was the best birthday dinner ever!"

the birthday duo wore their balloons and got sung to and enjoyed dessert which i just remembered i never got a bite of...i always get a bite!

I have enjoyed the way we have done the birthdays this year. No parties on the day of the birthday (since their birthdays have fallen on school nights). It has made the actual birthday a little more relaxed and enjoyable instead of just worrying about the party!

Avery can't wait till her skating party on Saturday...
