This year's birthday for both Bianca and Portia were "off" years. That means, I don't do a big party. They can choose a friend or two and we take them all to a movie and actually buy movie snacks. Since we had just moved in before Bianca's birthday in the fall, the two of us had gone to the Shakespeare Festival to see Hamlet instead of doing a movie (she didn't invite a friend; she just had me). So I let Portia pick a couple friends--Ashley and Lydia. And then Bianca brought her best friend too. It was a pretty low-key year, but I think they had fun. We saw The Croods.
