That's funny stuff.
Over the weekend we celebrated Macy's 8th birthday at home with family.
A little background, because I think it's genius:
We celebrate birthdays and parties this way around Lloyd Mountain;
Zach's birthday is in June.
Macy's birthday is in July.
That's too much party planning and serious house cleaning for this mama.
So the following system was put in place shortly after Zachary's birth;
Every other year each kid gets a friend birthday party...
(you know, the kind with a theme, kids, big messes, and actual invitations?)
This year it was Zach's party year.
The next year they get a "trip" year.
Meaning they pick the summer destination to celebrate their birthday and we are guaranteed a summer vacation EVERY YEAR.
So last year Macy had a friend birthday, (remember her rockin' ART party?)
This year was a trip year, so we visited San Francisco. (will be in a different post).
But we ALWAYS have a family party.
For every kid.
Have I told you that Macy has recently declared herself a vegetarian.
Meal planning has become difficult for me.
And party planning even harder...
Except she likes hotdogs and bologna.
I guess that still constitutes being a vegetarian since that is the
fakest non-real processed meat you can find.
I'm praying it's a phase.
Lucky for me she will still tolerate a small amount of ground beef for a taco.
*insert GIANT sigh here*
So a Taco Party it was for this year.
And boy do we love tacos.
