I just had my birthday a couple of days ago....and celebrated it with all my family...we have a huge family! Lots of decorating for the party, cooking, baking, eating, laughing, family stories and memories. It was perfect....especially the laughing and storytelling part!
Blessings,
Debbie

Well, ideally I'd love to spend it some place tropical, but I happily settle for spending it at home with my family!

PamS said...

I am for staying at home with family. The party lasts longer for me by celebrating this way.

Janelle said...

Some of my most fun birthdays have involved airplane trips to fun destinations, but I'm pretty easy and am OK with about anything except making my own dinner.

Melanie said...

I celebrate with family - either dinner out, or dinner home, but always cake from my favorite bakery - and I've started choosing outrageous artwork for the cake. :)

Michelle said...

I love to celebrate my birthday by taking the day off work, not doing any housework, playing in my crafty room or maybe going to the zoo, allowing myself to have lots of yummy treats throughout the day, then going out to eat for dinner. Ahhhh...pure bliss!

Jane said...

Hi !! we always order in pizza and have home made cake and snuggle and open gifts with the kids !

My hubby takes the day off from work and we have lunch, go to a movie, shop a bit then have supper. It is so fun! :)

It has often happened in my life that I was away on a trip for my birthday, as I have it in August and we have holidays then. This is indeed a relaxing way to spend a birthday!

Erika M. said...

i hang out with my family. We usually eat dinner and have cake and ice cream

Betsy said...

I love being home and so it is a birthday treat when my family can all be together and just enjoy the day.

Ali said...

We stay home and the birthday boy or girl gets to pick their entire meal and dessert. Then it's time for presents!

Daniela said...

We used to go on trips for my birthday. Now, that we have a son, we hang out around the house and go out for a nice dinner.

Karen S. said...

Spending time with the family!

Lori said...

We usually go out to eat, my pick! And the kids love surprising me with homemade cards, my favorite part!

Happy Birthday!

Cindee Stacey said...

We go out to eat so I don't have to cook! My pick of restaurant of course!!

artfulwhimsies said...

I just love to have family come over and have a cookout and then some cake. This year I will get to celebrate on Labor Day.

Sue from Oregon said...

I like to have my kids make me dinner at home...doesn't usually happen, but maybe someday LOL!

Ellie A. said...

Well for the past 2 yrs. my group of friends help celebrate each others birthdays.. We each became a Bday fairy and send goodies to the Bday gal (we all live in different states) and the celebration begins the week of that person's birthday and they open a little gift each day.. IT REALLY is awesome not only when its your bday but when we hear about the fun that bday gal is having so we celebrate bdays all year long! :)

Zarah said...

I love to go away and DO something. Instead of gifts, we try to take a trip. Preferably together with family. :D

cornellgj said...

I love to go on a date with my husband for my birthday.

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

My FAVORITE way to celebrate my birthday is having a little game night at home. I do it almost every year, my friends will visit from out of town. We will play more kid oriented games until they go to bed and then pull out ones with more strategy. We have pizza, cake, and lots of laughs.

Samantha said...

dinner out, sushi!

Andi (RrlScrapGal) said...

My birthday is usually celebrated w/ Mothers Day. My family takes me to several local nurseries to plant/flower shop, then we eat at a Mexican restaurant and I get a big ol' Margaritta! Heaven!

cas said...

Well, with a Dec. 22nd birthday, everyone is always so busy that we just go out to dinner. This year, however, we went away for three days - it was a huge milestone birthday.....It was nice to get away, but still lots to do when we got back! I should celebrate in June!

kksb said...

Staying at home with my family and having my husband cook my favorite meal!

Kay said...

I love to have my family take me out to lunch to my most favorite restaurant. Then we come home and eat cake and open presents. It's usually a very relaxing day because my family pampers me a lot!

Tricia said...

My favorite way to celebrate is with my family at home, but because of the size and conflicting schedules, it usually take at least a week to get all the celebrating with everyone. I don't mind!

Speedtyper said...

I celebrate my birthday with my sister, i was born on her 4th birthday...we always find time to have a craft day and make cards or something with paper!

Happy birthday blog day!

Shannon Hager said...

I love to celebrate with a special dinner and a day to myself. I have 4 kids under 7, so a day by myself is a special treat.

Elsina said...

We usually go out with all the family, some hiking, or a mall-visit, a meal together somewhere. The kids love those days.
Evening before it starts with cake of course.

Nancy in CA said...

I'm an easy birthday grandma...as
long as I'm with my family things couldn't be better. Just celebrated it last Sunday with brunch out with the whole gang. A very lovely day.

Bev M said...

My birthday is a week before Christmas, so I enjoy staying at home with family, and trying to avoid for at least one day the holiday madness.

Luanne said...

As my kids are all grown and scattered, any celebration with all of them is wonderful!

shruti said...

love to go out on a trip with my family...

Colleen said...

I love to go out to Bennihanas!! YUMMMMMM!

Mary said...

I love to be taken out for a nice meal at a nice resturaunt by my family.

Nancy said...

I am one of the strange people who doesn't mind working on her birthday. I get to do what I love, go out to lunch with friends, have a cake with a group of people and then go home to celebrate with my family. It's the best of both worlds.

mcjeeps said...

My birthday is so close to Christmas that it's celebration is often forgotten

Allen said...

Going out is great. No clean up. God bless!
Peggy

Debbie said...

Just hanging at home with my family.........ooh and a big chocolate cake!! LOL

Debbie said...

I love to paper craft during the day and go out to dinner at night to my fav restaurant - The Melting Pot!!!!

Delicia said...

shopping and CAKE

Rebekah said...

Ohh I love going out with my DH for a lovely quiet dinner, then coming home to have cake with mom, dad sis and BIL. The best of both worlds!!
Happy Birthday!

iScrapNxs said...

Though I love a great night out as much as the next girl, with four kids now, staying home to celebrate with them is what I prefer. Always so special to receive the handmade gifts they've made for me. Thanks again for a chance to win!

I love going out to my favorite restaurant with family and then heading to the craft store with hubby for a shopping spree.

Pattyjo said...

I celebrate with my DH, children and Grandkids. They usually have my favorite cake and sing Happy Birthday to me. My 5 yr. old Grandson is a big fan of cake and he doesn't care if he gets a gift, just sing and eat cake. LOL

jen said...

with family!!! (of course if I could take my entire fam someplace wonderfully tropical in the middle of December I'd happily do that!!)

pattyo said...

We usually go out to dinner and then have cake & ice cream at home.

Kathy W said...

We used to go out on an outing for the day, but now most times I spend a quiet day at home with no obligations...no cooking, time pressures...lots of crafting time feels like a present of its own!

Lisa Lou said...

I like to spend the morning shopping by myself for myself (usually crafting supplies) then the rest of the day with family. :)

jennifer said...

At home with family is just fine by me :) Again, since my husband and I have the same birthday, sometimes we plan a special night out together.

melissaahelm said...

We have to go out to eat--Mom's night off!

Karen said...

Going out to dinner with my family.

Teresa Kline aka va.sunshine said...

Mandy Smith said...

I love relaxing on my birthday. No cleaning, cooking and a mid-day nap. Ahhh, can't wait till my birthday

BooksandLove said...

I love going out to eat as a family. We don't go to restaurants much so when we do its very special.

Cris said...

My family usually takes me out to brunch or dinner. I'm game for anything as long as I don't have to cook

Steph said...

I usually have family come and visit me here at home....we have a nice meal together, eat cake and spend time together.

Yvette said...

my favorite way to go out to dinner with my family and have everyone in town!

Sheila D said...

Birthdays used to be party time for me! Party Hardy was my motto. But time has mellowed me and now I'd like to just skip it. If no one remembers my birthday, I can stay the same age for another year. hehe

Jennifer Hansen said...

We always just seem to hang out. Usually just too many things going on, but that's ok!

kimsparks636 said...

I will always choose dinner with my family. Especially if they do the cooking!

NinaB said...

I don't have a preference really, as long as I'm with my dear hubby and kids.

lou340 said...

Usually,at my birthday I'm for staying at home with my family. Pizza for all!

Becky said...

I love to eat out, so eating at Cheesecake Factory would be my choice for my birthday!!!

Jennifer said...

My favourite way to celebrate my birthday is with a gathering of friends and/or family at home.

With food. And cake!

SueB said...

We've developed a family tradition where the birthday person gets to select their restaurant of choice on the actual day of the birthday; then we've often celebrated with extended family on the weekend.

Thanx for the inspiration and blog candy opp!

Sandra D said...

I love to go out for a nice relaxing dinner where someone else has done the shopping, cooking and dishes.

Vicky B. said...

Usually hang with family at a restaurant or someone's house. I like small gatherings vs. large. However, I'm really expecting a bash for the my 40th this year.

DeniseB said...

I like to go out! My favorite is Greek pizza at a local restaurant. Used to be a nice Italian place close by, but they closed several years ago. They always brought out a yummy dessert!
