Birthday Letters

When our oldest child reached her first birthday, my husband and I started a tradition for her and all other children to follow...  We decided to start Birthday Letters.

Every year on their birthday, each of us compose a handwritten letter to be opened and read on the child's 18th birthday. 

Now our goal from the beginning was to write the letters on the child's actual birthday.  Sounds easy, right?  Well, considering our daughter has totalled 3 birthdays and our son 1, we've yet to actually hit the nail on the head.

And here's a huge confession... We have fallen way behind this year.  Our son is 13 months old today and neither of us has remembered to write our letter to him.  We are 4 days behind in writing our daughter's. 

Oh, so sad.  I'm signing off now.  Bet you can guess what I'm headed to do...
