We started making a list of *birthday to-do's* beforehand ... Including favorite meals, fun things, activities, etc.
Having a list is the perfect way to make sure the day is full of special things that each kiddo wants to do!
Another birthday tradition is decorating downstairs the night before ~
Our kids LOVE waking up to all the decor! (And it makes bedtime the night before a breeze~)
