It was Abe's birthday last week and we all had a wonderful day. We did absolutely no work (beyond the bare minimum of chores, like feeding ourselves and the animals). Instead, we spent the day playing games, eating cake and cookies, lounging in bed, surfing online, etc.
One really cool thing about this year was that both boys are now of an age to get excited about other people's birthdays. So they wanted to make Abe something. They took the frame of an old picture and made it a new backing out of cardboard. We then used plastic folders for the front, into which they put pictures that they made. They really enjoyed it and were both very proud.
