This past Sunday we celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary! Or as it shall be also known from now on: our Family Birthday! I did not come up with this idea totally on my own; I had some help from this post from one of my favorite blogs. But a party, birthday, and cake... that has me and Noah written all over it! :) I think an anniversary is a perfect way to talk about marriage and family with kids and celebrate something totally worth celebrating! (And this year I used it to talk about our last name and why it is special. He always insists that his name is "JUST NOAH" whenever anyone asks his last name or I answer for him...)
I got out our wedding album to show him and try to explain what a wedding was and one of his very first comments was: "Oh Mama, you are special; you are the princess of our family." Oh what a sweet boy. Then he asked me if I was going to wear my wedding dress to church.
(As you can probably tell from the picture, it really was a pathetic attempt at a cake. Oh well, perfection is not a necessity for celebrating and having a wonderful time. It was still good and I'm blaming it on summer heat.)
We sang "happy birthday to our family!" and all blew out the candles.
Oh, and we made a project.
Six years later and we get to be living this:
