    Birthday question...

    So with all the talk about birthday's going on I got to thinking about the kids bday and what we are going to do. The kids bday's are 13 days apart. DS(2yr) is Nov. 12 and DD(5yr) is Nov. 25 (Thanksgiving day this year)! Last year we did a combined one on a weekend between their actual bdays. So i was wondering should i just do the same again this year? Or should i try to do a separate bday? My hubby also suggested us making Thanksgiving the holiday we dont travel and having family come here but also do their bdays the same day? I dont care for the idea but what do you all think? I know i have a few months but with our families we have to give an advance notice or they will have some kind of excuse!! TIA

    Who would come to DD's birthday? Family or does she have a bunch of friends that would come? If its just family I think it would be fine to do the party on Thanksgiving, maybe in the afternoon after thanksgiving dinner. I would still do something special for her that Friday.

    I would celebrate DS's bday a few weeks early. I would think your DD would be getting to the age where she would like her own party.
