In our family birthdays are HUGE! Bigger than Christmas! We celebrate the birthday person's wonderful life, showering them with attention (and relieving them of chores)
This very special evening contained the following:
A huge balloon bouquet
A pile of presents - more presents than we give at Christmas.
My son hates eating at restaurants, so I cooked my Grandma Raynard's Kansas City Brisket.
Homemade rolls, broccoli, baked potatoes, and salad.
Happy 16th Birthday to my #1 Son!
