Hi E.! I want you to remember one thing, your boys are two different people. So you do not have to have their birthday celebrations exactly alike, okay? December birthdays can be lots of fun too! All of my boys were born in cold weather months so we have found tons of inside ideas. We are a homeschooling family. Although our kids have lots of friends, not all are here local and able to attend a party. So we decided years ago to make it a big family & friend celebration lunch. We invite all of our family and friends to come over for a cookout or pizza or covered dish lunch/dinner to celebrate our son's birthday. In fact, we just had one last weekend. My in-laws came up from GA and my family came from across the river and we had some friends here too. This year we just had pizzas and munchie foods. All the kids play around and eat. Then it's cake time. We get everyone together and light the candles and sing Happy Birthday. Then everyone has cake and then it's time to open presents. I will let them pick their theme for each birthday. When it's their first birthday, I get balloons for their chair and plates and napkins with #1 on them and a table cover too.
Mom, don't worry, he will love it no matter what you do for him!
