Birthday Traditions—Early, Early, Early!


It’s my birthday in two weeks, but in our family we celebrate early—way early! After all, how can you confine the joy of a birthday to just a 24-hour period?

With all this studying, I’d forgotten that my birthday was so close (well, close in Chaston time). So it was great to have my birthday start out with a surprise cupcake/cake! You can’t see the chocolate cupcakes in the picture, but they are my favorite—I’ve already had one. I absolutely love to eat these cupcakes after they’ve been frozen and barely defrosted. Such a great treat in between studying!

We have a lot of other birthday traditions, so I’ll be talking about a different one up to my birthday in two weeks! Some are just small things, but they are significant to us!

So what jazz song makes me feel celebratory? Definitely “It Don’t Mean a Thing If it Ain’t Got that Swing” sung by Ella Fitzgerald! Enjoy!

    I keep forgetting your birthday is so close too! No longer though! I’ll get a daily reminder!!! But what a cool birthday cupcake cake! I also love that eating things partially frozen got into it because that is DEFINITELY a tradition for all deserts it seems. They usually involve the freezer!
