Sweet, sweet September

Sweet as sweet can be the month of September! With all three children’s birthdays back to back… Lots of presents, lots of celebrating, friends over, sleep-overs … and then a much needed three week fall break at the end of a birthday marathon! Yes, 3 weeks off this year instead of the common 2! One week to recover from each birthday celebration! 🙂

As if kid’s birthdays weren’t already a big deal there is the usual back-to-school craziness with its pta meetings and school assignments topped of by our jog-a-thon fundraiser that takes place every two years.

Somehow we lived through it all ended up with great birthday memories to cherish for many years to come. It is so sweet to have a dozen 6-year-old, two dozen preteens and finally another dozen teenaged boys all be part of our already colorful and joyful life. I am grateful to have the opportunity to be the host and the creative mind behind these three celebrations each September.

What a treat this October was for us. Plenty of sunshine, extra time at the beach and as if that wasn’t enough a trip to the Cote d’Azur!

September, sweet sweet September – you will always have a very special place in my heart!
