we are quickly approaching "birthday week" for our family. the second week of october has always been a pretty busy, but fun week for us in my family growing up.
it all starts on the 6th of october, the most important day of the month, of course, with my birthday! then, it is followed, very closely, by my mom's birthday on the 8th.
next, my two best friends in high school, i know that is not "family" but it is pretty darn close, have their birthday's. sara's is on the 9th and sarah's is on the 11th (yes, my two best friends were both named sara/h).
needless to say, it was a very fun time of the year for all involved!
well, if that wasn't enough birthdays for one week, we had to go and add more to the mix. lala was born in 2003 on october 11th. almost exactly 3 years later, kawena was born on the 13th.
so, on monday (MY BIRTHDAY) we officially begin "birthday week" in our family! and this year, it culminates with kawena's 2nd birthday, monday the 13th, and the day we drive away from oregon, set for the sunnier skiesof albuquerque(good thing she's only turning two and will have no clue that we are skipping her birthday party!). that is if we get everything packed and ready to go!
let the celebrations begin!
