Adria's half birthday
So we've stared something a little weird but the kids seem to like it -- we celebrate HALF birthdays as well as birthdays. Call it a chance to try to teach the joy of giving, call it just being our crazy selves, but come somebody's half birthday, we give them $10 and drop them off at the dollar store to go crazy shopping for nine people . . . but NOT for themselves. It's like Christmas on a small scale for the rest of the family, and believe it or not, the giver even has a smile though they get nothing physical other than hugs. This last time was fun as usual and some of those presents were amazingly dead-on!
