Birthday season has officially come to a close today. Between August 20th and September 4th, we celebrate five birthdays and acknowledge another three. It's a hectic, cake-filled extravaganza that's delightful and always a bit of a relief to my sugar-overloaded system when it's over. Cody's is the last birthday, and his usually falls on Labor Day weekend, so we get to end with a three-day celebration that usually involves at least three different cakes. This year was no different.
So a little plumper, a little more sugar-filled, and a lot happier, I bid ado to 2009's birthday season and look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas and the smattering of well-spaced-out birthdays in the meantime.
