Because I am sick of thinking and endlessly talking (sorry) about seizures, I have decreed it to be contest day. I am going to be giving away a Precious Moments Birthday figurine to the person who can share the best birthday that you remember having as a child.
The one that comes to my mind is my 9th birthday celebration at my grandma’s house in Idaho, where she made me a cake and my cousins got to attend. Since my family lived in Missouri at the time, it seemed extra-special to have my cousins there celebrating with us.
I also have a fond memory of my 16th birthday. At 9 AM on the day of my birthday, I was at the driver’s license office office, ready to take my driving test. An hour later I had my new license in my hand. Don’t ask me what I did the rest of the day; that was the highlight for me.
Because I’m going to be pretty busy for the rest of this week, you have until Monday morning to share your memories. Sometime on Monday or Tuesday I’ll pick a winner. The Precious Moments figurine was donated by Preciousmoms.com. They also have a birthday party planning kit that you might like to check out.
I can’t wait to hear your memories. I’ll be reading with the focus of trying to figure out what tends to make birthdays most special for kids. With 5 kids age 10 or under, there are lots of Owlhaven birthday parties still in our future, and I’d like to make them good ones!
