June 9th, {13th} & 17th

....are way too close together.
This is a picture of my older 2 boys & my youngest brother Phylip. They're almost like brothers...closer in age to Phyl than I am. They love yet annoy each other, tell jokes, wrestle, give piggy back rides. Phyl has even been known to make up a Scavenger Hunt or two for the young lads. He gives them his old clothes, books, toys, Pokemon cards & gameboys. So I guess they might as well share their Birthday week too!

Every 4 days in the middle of June we celebrate a Birthday. So that's why I was happy that Spence & Dude were in agreement to combine their birthday parties....but that would be a few days later.

Although the "party" would not be till later, I still think the actual birthdays are still so important to celebrate...would you please give that memo to my husband. thx. So on the 9th & 17th we did just that. Nothin spectacular...but just tried to make the days a little more fun than normal.

First the days began as they woke up to the kitchen decorated just for them-with banners, balloons & donuts.
Then they saw their chore charts:
We did things like go to:
Splash Pads
Swimming, Opening a few little gifts
& The Library
They got to Choose Lunch & Dinner Meals:

Spencer: Chick Fil-A-Lunch
Dinner: Sloppy joes, corn on the cob, watermelon, soda pop & chips
Daylan: McDonald's Happy Meal-Lunch
Dinner: Spaghetti, Garlic Bread, soda pop
And choose what kind of cake & ice cream to have:
Their Gift from us was:
A Fire Truck Birthday Party
& they could invite whoever they wanted.
....that's a post to follow soon.
