As we've grown older, it is a little bit harder to have three separate parties in one month. A couple years ago, we had a round-robin celebration. I hostessed Shannon's birthday, Shannon hostessed Holly's birthday, and Holly hostessed my birthday. (Mom didn't get left out...we let her hostess Easter!)
This year, life was getting in the way of our party month, and Shannon volunteered to entertain us for one big birthday bash. Now, Holly and I know how well Shannon entertains. Neither of us objected to letting her do all the work! None of us were disappointed. What a lovely evening!
Shannon's birthday is the first one up.
(Should I mention this is the big 3-0? Nah. Grin.)
Holly's birthday is next (even though she is the oldest).
My birthday closes out the month.
