My family loves birthdays. Most people just pass through birthdays like they are just another day, but we embrace them. We celebrate...big time. For the girls' birthdays we have a special birthday hat. The hat is purple cheetah print and says, "All hail the Birthday Princess." For the boys' birthdays we also have a special birthday hat. It is a top hat covered in sparkles...the boys love this hat. On every birthday celebration we bring out a single star pinata. This pinata is not used for getting out aggression, however. It is used simply for decoration. My eldest sister's husband was a tiny bit confused by that...it's understandable. Happy Birthday to today!
