Some members of our family have been known to celebrate their specialness for an entire week. We won't name names. Ok, it's all of us.
Since we are a family that is rich in being (as opposed to a family rich in having) we tend to not make a huge fuss over gifts in favor of family fun activities. This year I celebrated with home made cookies, reading in the sunshine, swimming, playdates, multiple breakfasts in bed and scrapbooking with friends.
These are a few of my favorite things.
And this is how I chose to celebrate the passing of another year.
