Birthday Traditions

We just celebrated another birthday here ~ my oldest daughter turned 9 yesterday!  I can't believe only one more year until we're in the double digits!!

I really enjoy celebrating each of my kid's actual birthdays with a few simple, inexpensive, yet really fun little traditions.  It's easy to fit them into our regular day and the kids really look forward to their special treats.

 Starting her special day with Birthday Pancakes

(I made the plate a few years ago at a Paint-your-Own Pottery Place)

She was so excited to get home from school so she could do our newest tradition ~ the Birthday Balloon Pop!

Quick pose before the popping begins!

Let's get that money!

WooHoo!  Nine bucks!!

And finally, ending the day with a simple little Pepperidge Farms cake and candles!

Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!

Oh, and I didn't take new pictures, but she also had a Countdown Stand like her little sister!

NOTE:  I'm still working on some posts about the joint birthday party I threw for my girls this past weekend!  You can see the Cupcake Stand  and cute Autograph Pillowcases I made, but more details to come on the rest of the party.

    Dear Barbara D.: When I started to look into this, I beard shirt found a family t shirts whole world of gadgets, reviews by customers and enough online videos on how to properly tuck in a shirt to waste a couple hours. So, there are many contraptions designed to tackle this problem. The one that seemed most comical has garters at either end of supernatural t shirts a hunk of wide elastic that you attach to your socks and your shirt tail (at the same time).

  6. Greetings, the HFM clinic website is a goldmine of valuable resources on hormone replacement therapy, specifically human growth hormone therapy. The information is clearly laid out and well organized, making it easy to understand the benefits and risks. Their commitment to safety and medically sound treatments is evident, and it gives me confidence that I am in good hands. My experience and insight about the brand, and clinic, about good experience HGH clinic for men has changed my life, and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking hormone therapy.
