Birthdays are an important part of our household. For the last couple of years I have shared my birthdays with the youngest. No, he was not born on my birthday. Rather, in 2010 (the same year he was born) he had open heart surgery to patch up some holes in his little heart. It was the best 30th birthday ever! Staying true to style, he had a fever this year due to an ear infection and we spent the 4th year in a row in the ER for him. Oddly, he's only 2 years old, so it may take a moment to realize that he was in the ER even when he was inutero! I think he's making it a trend!
Thankfully each year he has made it from the ER and back to home and all in all this was a good year. Tristan took a note from our month long backing sessions and made my birthday cake all on his own. White cake with lemon frosting. It was excellent!

As with everything, it comes back to learning. This year has been a LONG year of lessons and learning for our family but as we all sat down that night we ate cake and hung out as a family. Felix helped me blow out candles and my nephews ran around acting like silly teenagers. It's amazing what family time can bring and how happy it can make me. I truly love this time with my family.
Just wanted to share some family fun with you all!
