Birthday Week . . .

Christmas is over...
New Year's is over...
Life is back to normal....
that is for most people.

For a number of years once New Years was over I was planning birthday parties. 

My daughters were born 2 years and 3 days apart. 

I would plan a kids party complete with cake for my first born on her birthday...
evening would come and we would have a second cake and extended family would come over.

Three days later we would do it all over again..with the middler...

This only lasted for about 5 years as we moved away from family...
then we only had one cake and party with friends per daughter 
so birthday week got a little easier...

Once they got married those parties quit...
but I tried to do something separate with them on separate days...
First Born was 2....
Middler was 1 week...

this was my last year with only 1 Birthday Party
the second week in January....
and even though I don't have the busyness of those parties anymore,
I have the memories...
of 'Birthday Week'
