For those of you who don’t know, Mroz family birthday traditions started about 4 years ago when I was laid off. I had no money to buy Matt a gift, so Augie and I bought some cheap decorations from the party store, a birthday ribbon, and made a sweet chalkboard drawing for him instead. Ever since then, Augie has requested all three of these things on his birthday and I kind of love it (even though it takes forever to do). It’s a fun way to document what the kids love at each age.

This year, obviously, Augie was very into emojis. I find this funny since he doesn’t even own a cell phone…but you know, kids. What else do you draw on your chalkboard for a kid who wants an Emoji party other than rainbow poop? Also, these streamers are my favorite EVER.
