February is our month for birthdays, but looking at back posts from the past few years, it also seems to be our month for germs - especially for the Munchkin and I.
This year we both got waylaid by a nasty stomach virus - each in turn - that takes a bit to bounce back from, and so our "birth month" celebration has been a bit more erratic than last year. I guess that saves all of you from the day by day play by play. Quick synopsis: chocolate, trains and tracks. Not very creative, I know - but the best this mommy could muster from the quarantine of the sofa. (and this virus was so icky -the chocolate did not even get eaten - it messes with your taste buds -not fun)
Now that we are feeling better - things may get more interesting. I have a few handmade projects in the stash (not photographed yet, sorry...), and the birthday cake of the year has been designed - providing the Munchkin does not change his mind yet again.
We have gone from a steam engine - to a diesel engine - back to a steam engine - to an alligator - to a dinosaur (T-Rex - standing NOT sleeping) - back to a steam engine - back to an alligator.
Since I "design" the party theme and invitations around the cake, I finally opted to send out electronic invitations with no theme on them at all - just to hedge my bets. Somehow I am anticipating boo boo lip and tears no matter what Hubby finally comes up with.
At least the germs hit us early -and perhaps will not visit again on my birthday like they did last year.
