tools to planning birthday cards suprises

I don’t know about your family, but ours loves to celebrate birthdays. The kids count-down to birthdays and last week they were super-excited to celebrate their Uncle’s birthday. You see, my younger brother moved in with us, a few months ago so that he could go to college here in Texas and he has been like a big brother to my kids. They love to laugh, play games,  and go to the movies together. So, when I told the kids that his birthday was coming up, they really wanted to plan birthday surprise, starting with some fun birthday cards.

Oh no we need birthday cards

So, since we were heading to Walmart to pick up some dinner supplies, I figured we would check out the birthday cards selection, as well. When we walked in, we headed towards the Hallmark aisles and Little Man came to a halt. A huge smile crept over his face as he made a bee-line to the new Minions kids birthday cards, which made sense since he and his Uncle have been impatiently awaiting the release of the new Minions movie. He was also able to find even more Minions kids birthday cards right by the checkout area.

As Little Man oohed, ahhed, and laughed uncontrollably at the Minions kids birthday cards, which by-the-way are only available at Walmart, I couldn’t help but notice an assortment of Hallmark cards for as low as .49 cents, so I told the kids that they could stock up. I mean, it is always nice to have extra cards on hand for that last minute party invite, new baby announcement, etc, right? It was really nice just allowing each of the kids to choose an assortment of cards because, in all honesty, who could beat that price, you know?

After we chose the birthday cards, the kids led the way towards the bakery to pick up a cheesecake and a balloon to surprise their Uncle. When we got home, I got the cake ready and the kids signed the Minions Card they chose.

Oh and the best part was that I took just a few minutes to organize all those new cards the kids purchased to have them on hand for when they need them through the year!
