I am pretty sure that most families don’t roast pigs for Birthdays. That being said, it’s obvious we aren’t normal. We also named the pig we roasted. Say hello to Sadie!
We’ve been roasting pigs, lambs and sometimes chickens for my little sister’s birthday ever since she was born. Even though we celebrated on Saturday, she officially turns 9 today! Happy Birthday DoodleBug! Also, we had 2 people celebrating their 50th and 60th birthday ( I won’t mention names…Hi Mom! Hi Dave!) so even more reason to celebrate and eat 3 different cakes.
When I asked my sister what she wanted for her birthday she responded “pajamas and a volleyball”. Such a simple girl and yet I bought her none of those things. Trust me, I still spoiled her like a good big sister does.
I can’t believe next year my sister will be in the double digits! She’s growing up way too fast. And by too fast, I mean she’s almost as tall as me. Hopefully I’ll hit my growth spurt at 30, I think it’s a couple years late.
What’s something you request for your birthday? I always ask for my mom to make me chimichangas (which I think are actually enchiladas but we’re not changing the name now). And pineapple orange cake ( and I don’t even like pineapples).
