Carina’s birthday is coming up soon.  Since about the day after her last birthday, she has been asking to have a “piggy bank birthday” this year.  She is still steadfast in this request.  Right now the plan is to have a few piggy banks and collect donations for a couple charities.  We’ll also probably play pin the tail on the piggy, and of course, there will be a piggy bank birthday cake.

When I was looking through some old pictures, I came across this picture from Carina’s baby shower.

That’s a piggy bank holding the balloons down and acting as a centerpiece.  I had completely forgotten that we decorated with piggy banks.  So, Carina has sort of technically already had a piggy bank birthday party.  Too bad we used the piggy banks as prizes for the shower games we played.
