birtrhday week

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!

Sounds like a very fun and busy week. I can't believe you guys are actually leaving. I think I'm in denial. It doesn't feel real to me yet. I know it will though.

Happy Early Birthday!

Elizabeth said...

So this is what you were doing on the laptop at my house! But of course your birthday, as you so SUBTLY reminded us, is the MOST IMPORTANT of ALL birthdays!

As you know, our birthday week starts early in January. But, as far as I know, we don't plan on moving at the end of the birthday week. :-)

I'm with Sarah. I'm still in denial!

Ok, so let me get this straight. At least half the time you get pregnant in February. Remind me to see if I can get your parents to send you out to the getaway in Vermont in Feb. 2010. I will bet they will be up for it. They seem to like those grandbabies!

Man, we should be partying together. Mine on the 11th, Addison's on the 13th. Then Jesse and Megan are the next weeks. We have to budget for October like its a mini-Christmas!

Bridget said...

Yeah, good thing for you Kawena is in the too early to notice my birthday is skipped phase! So sorry about the mixup today at the part. I feel really dumb about that.

Happy early birthday!

Sweet! We have "birthday month" around here. We're all within a few days of march, except for Ethan, who was born in what we call the "off season." July. Lucky kid. His birthday is actually a novelty by then!

Mandy said...

I have to agree with Sarah and Elizabeth I am in total denial that you are leaving. I'm just happy I get to spend part of birthday week with you...see you on Wednesday

Next to Christmas, October has the most money going out for gifts. I think it is 8 bday within 11 days. Sounds like the same for you.

Happy bday all!

Good luck with your travels. You are not coming thru the Phoenix area are you? We could be a pit stop!

I hope you have a great birthday tomorrow and that your birthday week is fun and fabulous!

Best of luck with the move. I know how hard it is to leave friends that you love and who love you so deeply.

Here's to a happy and safe journey to NM!

Oh and i figured out what i'm sending you guys for your birthdays... it came to me last night while I was up and couldn't sleep until 2am so obvioulsy it will be late and you need to let me know where to send em! plus you wouldn't want it on time and then have to pack it up and move (not that its big or bulky or anything but just one less thing to move right?) Love you!!!

Mahina! Just catching up on the last few posts- first off, that picture of your darling family on 'hawaiian sunday' is beautiful! Second, I am excited to hear your pregnant- sorry it has been bitter sweet- wish I could be there to help... but it sounds like you have a great support system! After listening to conference today, I feel like I can conquer anything, right? Take care!
