We have twins. They were born split at midnight (the year of the millennium!) Which is really convenient because whatever year it is—is how old they are! We have a tradition that actually started for me back in college at the University of Dayton. My sorority has a tradition for new initiates called a cookie shine. Basically a room full of sweets laid out and all the new pledges get to fill up bags of goodies—on the count of 3! So fun!
I took that idea and decided to apply it to my kids birthdays. After they go to sleep we decorate the hallway and door with their favorite treats.
This year they turned 11—so we gave a little money too–which was a huge it!!
Poster board has a big 11 on it…
