Tyler says that having a birthday close to (and often-times on) Thanksgiving means that he kind of gets forgotten or bypassed due to other celebrations going on. So, I take that as a challenge to make sure he has a great birthday every year!!
This year the birthday boy's big day fell the day AFTER Thanksgiving. That morning I ran to Kneaders and grabbed some cinnamon rolls for breakfast and brought them back for a breakfast-in-bed feast. We kind of lounged around in the morning and then did some birthday shopping (with a gift card from Mother Lucy and Father Charles) that afternoon. For dinner I had ordered some Empanadas (Tyler devoured some recently at a mission farewell luncheon), which I had ordered weeks ahead to be picked up just in time for a quiet dinner at home.
