  • On their birthday I will tell them happy birthday and remind them about the upcoming party. I will also let them choose what we have for dinner, or I'll just make one of their favorites.

  • We usually go out to eat at their favorite restaurant on their actual birthday if it's not the same day as the party. We give our children their present(s) from us and let them open other peoples gifts at their party. Sometimes, if their birthday falls during the week, we'll go to Chuck E Cheese for dinner (if it's on the weekend, you couldn't pay me to go, lol). We also usually get a small icecream cake or pre-made goodie to at least put a candle in and sing Happy Birthday.

  • On their birthday we do 'family celebration' ... that is usually doing something fun that they like, this year my daughter chose Build a Bear and then we went out for lunch, then she opened her gifts from us and we had a small cake. Party day is for everyone else. My son's b-day is coming up and he wants to go to Chuck e cheese for family celebration.

  • We do the same as most of the others. I either make the dinner of their choice, or we go out to dinner and we have a small cake, plus they get to open their family gifts on their birthday. They'll have plenty to open at their party. If it's a school day, I used to go pick them up for lunch on their birthday, take treats to school, etc.

  • On their birthday, we do a family party which is decorations, two personalized homemade cakes and icecream, gifts from us and dinner. The party is just a chance to play with their friends and have a good time. It includes the same thing as the family party only more decorations, party favors, one large cake from the bakery, and lots of friends.
