a simple birthday

We were still recovering from illness on Bugaboo's birthday.  Therefore I cancelled our plans to celebrate with some of our local friends.  I doubt they would have cared that my house didn't get vacuumed this week, but I had no energy left to make a cake or snacks or entertain. Plus, our birthday boy was still not in the greatest mood for company.


So The Hubs picked up four fancy cupcakes on the way home from work, and we ate them after dinner but before cards and presents. Then we piled in the car (because I was a bit stir crazy from  two weeks of various illnesses at our house), and we looked at Christmas lights.



I felt a bit of mommy-guilt that this birthday was so boring, but we aren't in to big and fancy around here anyway. Many of the people around here who love him asked about him today at church or said hi to him in person.  He is loved. We are loved.   And most of the people who would have spent time with him on his actual birthday will come to visit at some point in the coming weeks anyway.
 

So no more mommy-guilt because even with the unexpected circumstances, it was a lovely birthday with my three favorite guys.

    1. The Cup - I think it is the closest one to our house. We've been to starcakes, too, but The Cup has bigger cupcakes, it seems.
