Happy Half Birthday Janey Brooke

for about 3 years now we have been celebrating half birthdays
i think it all began because the girls were always obsessed
about getting that "half" added to their age...me not so much

yesterday was Janey's special half day
according to tradition, on your half birthday you get a date with the parent of your choice,
{we try to do those every month on the date of their birth...some months go better then others!}
you can choose dinner and a homemade dessert
and the surprise gift is a new book

Janey chose putting and the park with Daddy
fried cheese and mandarin oranges
and a rainbow cake
her date was perfect
and her dinner was gobbled up with no complaints about "thank you bites"

she received one of her favorite new books we discovered at the library, A Friend (love it!!!)
and the cake was a delicious "rainbowy surprise"

we love you so very much Janey Brooke


  1. Hi Cindy! Thank you for stopping by my blog. You have a cute blog!

    I love this idea of celebrating half birthdays. I think I'd like to start this with our little guy, since he is going to be our only one. What a great idea.

    I love her cake! Very cute.

    Have a good day. I am following you as well. :)

  2. How fun Cindy! I love this idea too! I just had to think with my fingers when Brady's 1/2 birthday would be! Maybe we will suprise him in Sept. with a 1/2 birthday!

  3. How cute is that!? Love her dinner choice. Any cake left? It looks yummy!

  4. What a great idea. I wish I would have thought of this years ago! Two of my daughters have their birthdays late November, and it always feels like they are being squeezed in between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This would be a really nice way to celebrate with them when it is less busy.

  5. We do this too, isn't it fun? We celebrate their half birthdays with a 'half cake' (a cupcake with one single candle). I love your dinner and book idea, though - we need to expand our routine up here!
