Birthday Month Celebration

Birthday_edited-1 

Warm greetings sweet friends! The month of February is turning out to be one of the busiest months for me. Just as I recover from the hectic holidays, I get a small breather just before I have to start planning both my childrens birthdays in the month of February. First Grant's… than mine…than Miss Vivian's. All are back to back! Which makes it for a month long celebration and a hurting on my husbands wallet as he likes to tell it! hee! hee!

For Grant's 4th birthday this year we opted to take him for a long weekend to Disney instead of a traditional birthday party. Before we left for our trip his preschool had a little "Celebration of Life" in his honor. All the children gather and sit in a circle. Grant than holds a small globe and walks all around the circle and each circle represents a year of his life.

A candle is than lit for him to blow out.

Of course we had cake made for him. His new current love is Hot Wheels so I had a hot rod ice cream cake made for him. So long Thomas the train…we are into HOTRODS!!!

For Miss Vivian this year we decided to have the Tumblebus come and entertain all the children. The Tumblebus is a fun gymnasium inside the bus where the children bounce, tumble, dance, and play!

I love Betsey too! I had a chance of staying out in her rental home in Mexico; that was wonderful!
The celebration of life is such a great idea. More schools should embrace that.

Oh my gosh, sweet Jenn, I can’t BELIEVE I missed your birthday! I’m a Febbie girl also, February the 5th to be exact! It makes me quite squealy to learn that we share a birthday month, it does! I must pop something in the post to mark the most magical occasion there ever could be – the anniversary of your birth! Gaahhh! I am sending you great big belated birthday hugs in the mean time, honey! So thankful for yet another doozy of a blog post crammed to the brim with beautiful pictures & info! So much to look at as always, it’s sensory overload for the eyes! Little Vivi’s cake topper is to die for, (it’s almost as big as she is, oh my!!!) your Betsey necklace is making me salivate, I am so moved by the gorgeous celebration they threw for Grant’s birthday at his school & just adore the pic of him with Mickey & Minnie especially. Such happy, exquisite children you have, my love! I must also make naughty mention of how delish you look in your pretty pink birthday blouse! My gosh, I’m being WAY too fresh here but heavens, your bosom looks even yummier than that cake! I am oozing with love for you, Jenn, just as much as ever! I miss you so whole heartedly and simply ache to be in touch more than I am. Sitting flat on my butt right now in a complete daze from all the cute I see above! You knock me dead, Miss Jenn, I love you so!

Hi Jenn! Wow! What a FUN month with all of those special birthdays to celebrate! Grant and Vivian are such adorable children. :-) I love visiting your delightful blog, and seeing all of the photos you share. It looks like Grant had a blast at Disney, and Vivian was the belle of the ball at her party. And your celebration out with the girls sounds perfect to me. I love your new necklaces too. I knew Betsey Johnson made clothes and shoes/handbags, but I didn’t know she had a jewelry line too! I’ve gotta check it out!

Jenn,
These photos are precious. What a blast! I think the celebration of life ceremony that your son’s class has on birthdays is so cool.
This is what September looks like for our family…lots of birthdays..so busy, but lots of fun.
I’m also a big Betsey fan.
Happy Belated Birthday!
Elizabeth

Hi Jenn
Happy Belated Birthday!! It looks like February is a very busy month for you! :)
I received my sweet red Valentine girl in the mail this week….she is so adorable! Can’t wait to hang her in my “red” reading room when it is finished!
Hope your month of March is less hectic!
Have a great week!
Rochelle
