mindful mondays: birthdays

Yesterday was Dad’s birthday and today is Kelly’s birthday.  It was so nice to be together.  Grandma, Auntie Mieko, and Aunt Sharon were there too.  I love our family time so much.  I love being able to celebrate someone’s life and getting to share life with them.

I’ve had some great birthday parties.  For my 6th birthday we had a makeup and fashion show.  One of my friends had an older sister who taught her how to properly apply makeup and so looked like a doll, while the rest of us looked like we’d lost a boxing tournament.  Mom had gotten some really fancy dresses together and we all chose one to wear and model as we walked the “runway.”

Another year Dad put together a scavenger hunt of sorts.  We split up into two teams and had a list of hints, and the answers were the name of a store.  We had to go around and get signatures from employees within a certain amount of time.  My team lost but we had a blast.

I love birthdays.
