I have mentioned moose in a few other posts. He is a part of our family. He was originally a gift from my parents to Tre after a trip they took. But Tre preferred his red bear & so moose was left unattended. When Britton was about 18 months Moose was found & the two became inseparable buddies.
A few days ago Britt woke up in a start. His eyes filled with tears, his lower lip drooped & he said in the quietest, most pathetic voice ever "How could you have forgotten Moose's birthday?!" Funny thing is...I had no idea, in fact I am pretty sure we celebrated it around christmas. Sooo...while T & Britt were at school I found a way to integrate a moose party into family home evening. The kids made makeshift decorations with what we had in our craft kits & then Britt (who was in charge of treat for FHE) made a cake & all the boys decorated it. T wrapped up a gem from a cavern, a hershey bar & an old fast food toy for moose. When Rod arrived home we had our songs & lesson & then partied with moose..who apparently turned 2...although I distinctly remember celebrating his 5th birthday already. details details...it was just fun to celebrate with our kidd-os.
