Chris and Kendall’s birthdays are a week apart. My sister, mom and myself all have consecutive birthdays in December (20,21 & 22) and my parents always made sure all of our birthdays were special.
Back to my original point… it is important to me that I make Chris and Kendall’s birthday special! Clearly, I throw an awesome party for Kendall, ha! You can go back a few posts to see all of that.
On Chris’s birthday he had a family reunion so we celebrated there. Chris is (the opposite of me) and hates when people sing Happy Birthday to him. He would probably divorce me if I made a restaurant full of hungry patrons yell “Happy Birthday Yee-haw!” to him!
His mom provided a cake and you would have thought my husband was 7 years old. He loves his CATS.
This picture cracks me up.
Since we celebrated Kendall’s birthday last weekend we wanted to do something small for her on her actual birthday.
Chris went hunting so I made her a special birthday breakfast and invited my mom over to join us! We didn’t take pictures because neither of us were wearing makeup.
Later, after the huntsman returned, we let Kendall open her gifts. I struggled with shopping for her this year. Shocker, I know. Kendall has everything. Her playroom is almost embarrassing because she has any and every toy you could think of! We looked at a few “bigger” gifts and decided they might be a Christmas gift instead.
We got her a few small toys and some clothes and she loved everything!
We wanted to do something fun with her on her birthday. We talked about going to a pumpkin patch or driving a few hours to the aquarium, but Kendall was kind of in a mood (twos?) so we wanted to stay closer to home.
Kendall loves playing some skeeball so we took her to a local arcade/putt-putt/go cart track place and spent a whopping $3.00 on some skeeball before we left.
After our skeeball tourney and rewarding of silly bands worth 23 tickets we ventured over the river to Indiana to go to the big Bass Pro Shop store. Clearly, this was a Chris choice of events but us girls had fun too. Have you ever been to a Bass Pro Shop? It is so big and they have all kinds of fish
and dead animals on display. We liked the home decor area best.
We wanted to go out to dinner but at this point Kendall wasn’t having it so we dined via drive thru and headed home.
I realized I hadn’t got a picture with the birthday girl so I had Chris snap a few. These were the best we could do.
I love you enough for the both of us K-dawg! And I will love showing these pictures to your future spouse.
Now life can go back to normal since our October birthdays are over! It’s been real!
