So Birthday's are a big deal in my family. As a child my parents always had a party for us. It was never anything like the kids parties are now a days but we always had friends over, a special meal and of course cake. My grandmother always made us money cakes. Totally awesome! And now that I am an adult we still have parties, although they are just family now but our birthday's are always a special day. We get to pick what we want for dinner and my mom makes or gets us a cake. Now that I have kids, I really put a lot of effort into birthdays. I just feel like it should be the one day of year that you should feel special. It's your day!
