Wordless Wednesday - A Half Birthday

This wordless Wednesday, can't be that wordless. Today, is my Handsome's half birthday. He is 6.5 years old and we celebrate half's here. We don't do much, but we do give them the dinner they ask for and talk about their birthday all day. Then, we do a cake and sing, "Happy Half Birthday to You!" The kids really just love that they get a "special day" dedicated to them. Honestly, it really is about the candle. What kid doesn't love blowing out a candle?

In fact, here is Goddess' half birthday this year. Notice the face? This is one of my favorite pictures. She was kinda upset that Handsome decided to blow out her candle.  I ended up re-lighting and telling him to step back but didn't know that she made this face and pose until I looked at the photos after download.

    LOL that's quite a look!

  6. If you want to be cautious get something very small and cheap just for inviting your daughter, just as if you were invited over to a friend's house for a meal or something. But I think actually having a half birthday is a joke. They should call it what it excuse to have a party. It's probably just to let the kids get to know each other better but they could just be taking advantage of an opportunity to get presents. I doubt that though.

  7. Such a great idea! Happy Half-Bday!!! :)

    I can't believe he's 6.5?! Where does the time go????

  8. I can't believe Handsome is 6 1/2!!
    But what a great idea to celebrate!
    Of course, when you reach OUR age, we STOP celebrating the 1/2's - we don't want to be any closer to the next one than we have to be.
    Love the two pictures... your kids are beautiful no matter what faces they have!!
