we try to make the birthdays for the kids something real special for ourselves its usually not much of anything, in the past we did parties, this year we are taking them to amusement parks, since they both seem to love rides, etc

I know that at the mesjids around here we celebrate the Prophet mohamad's a.s. B-day as well as all our Imams a.s. and Fatima b-day A.s, (I know that if you are not shia you proabably wont celebrate those last one) but I dont think there is anything wrong with it as long as you dont listen to music and stuff that is harram...
I don't agree with celebrating birthdays in general, including the prophet's birthday... at the time of the prophet they did not celebrate his birthday or other prophets' birthdays. I'd have to disagree with the statement in the link "In Islam, birthdays are not considered `eid (a festival) like `Eidul-Fitr or `Eidul-Adha, because `eids have conditions and guidelines such as not being allowed to fast during the days of Eid." There are a lot of non-Islamic "eids" that don't have conditions like this that we don't celebrate because they are not our eids (for example Christmas... which commemorates the birth of another one of our prophets, but we don't celebrate it becuase it's not an Islamic eid). So I think it is an innovation. Most muslims I've known also do not celebrate birthdays for this reason. But I've also known others who celebrate Christmas because "it's a cultural thing," I just don't agree with this.
