Birthday Girls and Guy

December was going really well, we were getting fun stuff done, actually completed a puzzle without Little Miss destroying it and losing pieces, when some wonderful mother decided it would be a Good Thing to send her son to AWANA with pinkeye. {SIGH} Well, we are one of those families that enjoys doing things one, maybe two, at a time. Needless to say, we dragged pinkeye out as long as we could! Blogging went by the wayside while we spent weeks following each other, wiping down and sanitizing everything. No fun. Eventually I'll get Christmas blogged about, but for now I will at least squeeze in a bit about our December birthdays.

Rachel turned 19 on the first. She's so easy to please as to be boring, as far as birthdays are concerned. She likes tiramisu cake from Fred Meyer - we even managed to find a large one for the price of a smaller one! For dinner, her favorite is one of my easiest comfort food meals - chicken and dumpling cream soup. I felt like such a loser in the effort department, but everything was tasty, and she was happy.  

Hubby was 42 on the 7th. Gulp. I'm still trying to figure out where our 30's went! Seems I don't remember much about them, they zipped by too quickly. Sometimes not quickly enough, though, when I really think back on them. This picture was actually taken on Christmas morning - like the garbage bag in the background, hahaha? He, too, was easy. We started a tradition a few years ago, where he picks up a new video game for his present. Boring, but we're kind of at that stage in life.

Miss Crazy Girl turned two on the 20th. What a terrible thing to do to a child! Well, we don't really "do" birthday parties, so I guess it really doesn't matter like it did when I was a kid! I always felt so bad for my oldest boy, who did go to public school, and whose birthday was right at the beginning of summer. This picture of Amelia was her getting ready to go play in the snow during our too few snow days. Goof.
Anyway, Emma made Amelia a birthday crown. I think it stayed on just long enough for a couple pictures, and no more.

She is my owl girl, and when I found these on Pinterest, I knew they'd be pretty easy to do - and they were! I was actually very pleased with how they turned out. We were going to have a small party with my cousin and three of her kids, but, you know. Pinkeye.

Amelia didn't notice anything missing, she got a cute little set of tools for play dough, some new Christmas jammies, and Owl Cakes. What more could a two year old want?
