Birthdays We Missed

I had three very cute blog posts written in my head, celebrating each of the children’s birthdays and then in the busyness of the holidays and the house stuff, they never made it from my head to the page.

So, here they are. A day (or month) late and a few dollars short, a little birthday shout out to each of my beautiful babies.

My kids really like avocados and milk.

I had such a great time sitting down with Maggie over some crackers and milk to “interview” her. I think this would be such a fun yearly tradition to do with the kids on each of their birthdays. Do you have any special birthday traditions with your children?
