Tomorrow it’s birthday time again at our house. We had one birthday in January, three in February, now our only March birthday is today. One of our family traditions is to let the special birthday person choose their birthday meal and dessert. On Saturday’s birthday menu is taco salad, pound cake with strawberries and whipped cream! Yummy! Didn’t the birthday girl choose a delicious meal?
I believe some presents have already been given due to the excitement of certain siblings, but we will be giving our daughter some money as she has expressed an interest in starting her own business. Budding little entrepreneur!
A new family tradition that started with one of our birthdays in February is choosing a movie to watch. Our son chose some goofy animated movie, but our daughter chose The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland. The old version. We tend to like the older versions of books and movies. I haven’t watched The Wizard of Oz in years, so it will be interesting to see what our children think and what discussions come from it. Now, for other Christians reading this, we don’t agree with everything in the movie, but there are some things that we all can take from it. In defense of the good witch and bad witch, we will probably turn that into a discussion of the battle of the good and evil that is present in the world today, even though we know scriptures speak against witchcraft and sorcerers.
Since I don’t know the demographics of my readers yet, I find that when I talk about personal stuff I want to over explain our family’s position. Either that or I just automatically assume I am speaking with an all Christian audience, but I know that can’t be true. So I hope you all keep commenting and sharing your thoughts with me so I can get to know you all better. But know for the most part, I will be writing mostly about product reviews for the very reason I mentioned at the beginning of this paragraph!
