Another birthday celebration...

I am all birthday'd out! Between the months of September and January, all 5 of us celebrate our birthdays!  And this year both Sean and I had parties too.  And this year was extra crazy with the adoption added in there.  And just the usual holiday hoopla, all of the other family members with birthdays during that time (there are 10 other family members and a few friends aside from our family of 5) our anniversary and the surprise birthday party we had for my parents this year, I am kind of relieved it's all over!  We had Tate's party and the gathering for the boys' adoptions on the same day and it was Wesley's 1st birthday with us so we wanted to something where everyone was invited.  Cason's birthdays were low key this year, but we had 2 with the Peakin side and one with my side of the family.  We had the one with my side on Sunday.
Cason loves being celebrated! :)

There was cake and singing and presents and lots of kids running around!  It was fun!

All of the celebrations were super fun, but I am not going to lie, I don't think I can do this every year.  I think we'll have to minimize the birthday celebrations in the future.  With just 1 child, it was fine to do a big bash each year, but with 3 all within a few month period all mixed in with the holidays, I just don't think I can do it every year!  Life is just getting too chaotic.  I am all for celebrating the birthday boy or girl on their day, but I am going to have to figure out a way to make it more low key going forward. :)  I finally feel like the birthday/holiday season in our household is over for the next 8 months and it does feel good!

Thank you Mom and Dad for hosting everyone at your house only hours after your return from Florida and to everyone for the awesome gifts!  I think unlike Mommy, Cason (well, all 3 boys!) would be happy to do this every week!
