Lots of April Birthdays!

We have three B-days here in my family in April! My Hubby's, mine and our oldest sons! PARTY TIME!!! YIPPEE SKIPEE!!! I'm thinking since my B-day is April 16th I will do something nice to thank my precious parents for having me! Any fun ideas of what I could do to thank my parents that day? I've heard in the past of people doing this but I forgot all the details. So I am open for all your ideas please :)

hmmm... that is an interesting thought. I honestly can't think of a thing that you could do. We have a lot of April birthdays, too. 4/1 (nephew), 4/12 (granddaughter), 4/14 (son), 4/20 (grandson), 4/25 (daughter-in-law), 4/27 (daughter). Except for the nephew, I give some kind of gift to all the rest.

Maybe you could give them a night at a nice hotel or dinner at a nice restaurant to say thanks. You know - sort of a "very post-partum celebration" and think of some catchy phrase. Or write them a cute little ditty about labor and delivery and how they get to receive a bonus from their "labor of love". Just a thought...

We have 3 April birthdays, and they are exactly one week apart. My cousin is the 7th, my nephew is the 14th and my son is the 21st. So busy weekends ahead.

Not sure on the gift for your parents, but I think it's a wonderful idea.

Happy Birthday to you all!

That's so nice of you to think of your parents! But since I don't have any creative ideas...I like the one that was left already.
By the by, I got the package. I will post about it soon! THANKS SO MUCH!! I LOVE IT ALL! ♥♥♥

I love April birthdays! (Could be because mine is on the 11th)

YEAH! Happy birthdays for you and the fam!

Debbie said...

What a fun month that will be.
Maybe a photo book for your parents? I'm not sure.

Sue said...

I knew we were "Aries" sisters..My b-day is in April too!

One yr. I gave my mom a list of all the things she taught me! It was pages long.

A post on your blog.
Your written testimony

We have 3 April birthdays in my family too, plus a 49th wedding anniversary.
Happy birthday to all of you in the month of April...

Man, I am drawing a blank ---you could maybe ask them to take you shopping for new cloths cause didn't we do alot of that while still a youngster at home???

Robyn said...

Hey Shauna,
Nice to "meet" you and thanks for popping by. I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

Brenda said...

Shauna you are so sweet! Always thinking of others on "your" special day! I am so thankful and blessed to be a part of your life!

Now for an idea, I think you should give them a card with a gift card in it for them to go to dinner. You could write in it Thank You for having me today! Now go out and celebrate!

Thank You for being such a sweet and great example to us all Shauna! Love you lots my dear friend! {{HUGS}}

I have a friend who takes her parents to lunch or dinner on her birthday and talks to them about all the things that she continues to learn from them. Expresses gratitude for them and basically spends the time in one bit parent pay-off. What I wouldn't give......

trublubyu said...

my mom would always send her parents flowers on her birthday.

happy b-day in a couple weeks!

Amber said...

Hey! Thanks for stopping by! I love meeting new bloggy friends and finding new blogs to read!!

That is a great idea...doing something nice for your parents on your birthday!! What about massages, or dinner, or gift cards to see a movie?

Looking forward to keeping up with you!!

Mother Goose said...

you have had so many fun giveaways! you are so fun! I'm sorry I missed them.

april you will be having a whole lot of goodness going around!

Take them out for brunch or create a video slide show of you and all your baby pictures through the years to current, of special moments and then sit with them and watch it! call it a movie night of the best night of their lives and have popcorn! LOL, I bet they would like it.

Rhonda said...

Like your blog....sounds like April's crazy...Great b'day idea...

Kate said...

I don't have any ideas either but that is a great idea. Hope you have a super week.

Heatherlyn said...

I don't know about parents, but it makes sense to do something nice for them on your birthday! Once, I heard of someone sending their MIL a flower for each year of her husband's life on his birthday. That sounds convoluted, but it makes sense. It could possibly be applied to your own parents.

Hope it's a happy April BD celebration for all of you!

Liz said...

I hope y'all have a great birthday. I think that is a neat idea to do for your parents!

Kat said...

Add me to the list! I'm an April bday too!
I was thinking of giving my folks flowers on my bday too. :)

Bobie said...

I have 3 daughters that were born in April and my Birthday is the day before you!! Happy Birthday to us!! I love April! I have several wonderful friends who also have April Birthdays. Very Sweet of you to think of your parents on your Birthday!!

Mechelle said...

I am thinking, I gave my mom a flower on birthday. Not a big deal, but it was from my heart. m

Tink said...

What a great idea to do something for your parents who gave you life! And I'm definitely taking YOU to lunch my friend!

Carla said...
