But this year was definitely the coolest!
Why you ask?
Because this year our ages are 13, 15, 17 and 19.
Did you catch that? We are ALL TEENAGERS!
This year and this year only!
The boys and I have been waiting for when we all were teenagers for forever! So we combined birthdays this year into one celebration instead of 4 separate ones. The only difference was that Mamaw and Papaw only drove down once, we had one "cake" and Mom got bragging rights that she had ALL TEENAGERS now! (pity her.)
Presents were opened outside since the weather was so nice. Oops that's another difference...we normally have to do everything inside because it's always SO COLD!
A couple we call "our third set of grandparents", their daughter and two granddaughters stopped by just in time for cake (now that I think was planned :) Our "cake" was really homemade almond joy bars. But we couldn't get the bars to shape like bars. So we turned them into cupcakes. Because they stayed in that shape :)
