I think one of my very favorite family traditions is their half birthday celebrations. I never did this as a kid, just something I thought I'd try out. What's not to love? A day to look forward to. The birthday banner comes out (make yours here). A day to wear your mama made crown. An extra special day when we celebrate the special kiddo. The very favorite dessert (apple crisp here, home canned apples!). A couple gifts (which the book was a quarter and the truck and puzzle were hand-me-downs). It costs next to nothing and it's a memory that I treasure and hope they will too. It's never too late to start a half birthday celebration...you'll be glad you did!
