Do you enjoy celebrating your birthday?
-Do you make a big deal about it or just celebrate with immediate family usually?
-Does your DH/SO have a hard time buying for you?

Does your DH/SO enjoy celebrating his birthday?
-Does he mind if you make it a big deal?
-How difficult is he to buy for?

Do you go all out for your kids' birthdays or are they generally low-key?
-If finances weren't an issue, would you crazy for their parties?
-If they're old enough, do they make lists of what they want for you?
-How difficult is it to buy for them?

My DH & I don't make a big deal of our birthdays. Mine is two weeks after Christmas, so I never want anything. We typically just go out to dinner as a family. DH's birthday is Halloween, so trick-or-treating with Leah takes over. I make a cake and cook him a favorite meal or we go out to eat. We usually just exchange cards for birthdays instead of gifts.

For Leah, both sets of grandparents come down for a weekend and we do a small party with them. I decorate with streamers & balloons, have food and cake, etc. It's always a fun time! She's very easy to shop for - she obviously doesn't make lists yet but she certainly tells us what she wants! LOL
Thanks to Kiliki for my super cute siggy!

I don't really do anything for my birthday. I don't celebrate at all, just stopped bothering. Not sure, I don't get anything for my birthday.

He would rather just hang out with a couple friends. I don't make it a big deal.

Jackson, I usually just had a big family party, pot luck style. Last year was the first year I had him a friends party. I told him he was allowed to invite 5 friends, and we went to Clay Cafe. The kids all got to paint a little pottery figurine. I don't think I'd go crazy, might do something more expensive, but nothing extreme. I stopped having family ones, because twice, I've planned them all out and only 3 people showed. So just like my birthday, I stopped bothering at all.
Thank you *Kiliki*!

My birthday has been completely ignored by my spouse for the last 3 yrs. He hasnt done more than a card the two years before that.
My mother and sisters send cards...thats all I get. DH hasnt even taught the boys to celebrate it or do more than wish me a happy day...if he feels like it.

I do a cake and cards on DH's birthday. He'd rather forget it but Im not gonna do to him what he does to me.
The boys draw him pictures some years too.

We keep the boys parties low key...just us with a cake, their favorite meal for dinner and a gift or two.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

We don't have parties for mine and DH's birthdays....usually just dinner and a movie or something.

For the boys, we do parties. The little boys are family and for Conner, we'll do a party with kids from school.

For our birthdays, we just go wherever the birthday celebrant wants to go to dinner. We don't exchange gifts for birthdays, Christmas or Anniversaries. Jeff would probably be embarrassed if I made a big deal out of his birthday. I plan on putting together a party next year for his 30th. He'll get over it.

For the kids, we just celebrate here as a family and they're easy to buy for since they're so young. I think Josie will be harder to buy for since we will have bought for that age just a year earlier for Em, so she'll inherit a bunch of her stuff. Finances don't limit my ability to throw them a party, but I still wouldn't go crazy like those people who spend thousands on their kid's 5 year old party even if I had unlimited funds...
