Family Tradition: Birthday Signs

Because of my belief in the importance of meaningful traditions, I’m sharing a few from time-to-time that we’ve established in our family…

When you wake up and go downstairs on your birthday morning in our home you are greeted by signs.  Lots of signs.

They’re taped all over the walls.  They’re home-made signs by the other three members of the family.

Some are sweet, “Happy Birthday, You’re The Best!” and many are funny, “We Love You, Even Though We Still Remember When You Farted At Dinner Last Week.”  (Not an actual sign, but I would definitely use that!)

We have a blast making them, and the birthday person loves getting them.  In fact, we’ve had a couple birthdays when we weren’t going to be home, and our kids’ big concern was, “Will I still have signs?!?”
