We’re going to be doing Adrian’s blessing at church the last Sunday of August. Afterwards we’ll have a thing at our house. We had already decided we’d just combine that with Fritz’s second birthday party. Then we decided to go ahead and add Cameron’s birthday party in there, too. With gas prices what they are and the distance some family members have to travel it just makes sense for them not to have to come back less than a month later for another party.
But then I started worrying that it would bother Cameron to have to share his 7th birthday party with a 2 year old and a newborn. As it turns out he loves the idea. In fact he wants us to combine his birthday with his brothers’ birthday every year. Now, I don’t know if we’ll do that since there’s a long space between June/July and October. He even drew a picture of what he wants their birthday cake to look like next year with 8 candles on one side, 3 one another, and one on another.
