The Birthday Parade

We now enter what I have affectionately termed the birthday parade. The hubster is first up with his b-day in a week or so, then the #1 boy has his, and finally I get to celebrate mine right before Christmas.

So what did I do today? Went shopping for gifts. I found a couple nice things for the hubster at great prices--gotta love that! And saw a couple things that might be work for the Job-boy next month. Gonna talk it over with Michael and see what he thinks.

Up this week, finding a babysitter for #1 son so Michael and I can go out to eat, a b-day tradition. Make reservations at the restaurant he chose. And find a great recipe for carrot cake, which I will be baking for him. He loves carrot cake!

I look forward to celebrating with Michael. And it really isn't that stressful to put together, even if I do joke about it. For the Joe-boy, the menu is the easy part. Pizza and more pizza! And maybe an ice cream cake, like I used to get when I was his age. But I'm needing some good gift ideas for him. Still I have a month to look around.

We'll see what the boys plan for my day. And it wont' be last minute Christmas shopping!

Til next time ....

Sounds like fun! I love shopping for presents. Hope you can find a baby sitter. As much as I love being a mom, I also like having those times where I can just be a wife ;)

Nothing like getting your shopping done ahead of time. I haven't even begun to think about Christmas shopping.
