I'm slightly conflicted about this. Do you tell their full rainbow bridge story at their birthday parties? I was planning on doing it somewhat like this... (this is the cliffs notes version, haha). Btw, it's a party for both of my DDs, their birthdays are days apart so we always celebrate together.
Two little angels fly from star to star gathering light and love and wisdom etc. They look down at earth, see their parents, etc. There is a big angel at each star, one big angel helps DD1 cross the rainbow bridge. DD2 stays behind and waits for the earth to go twice around the sun. A little about DD1's babyhood, then how she calls out to DD2 in a dream, and DD2 joins us earthside after sleeping in her mother's womb.... then tell about how both girls brought light and love to our family. Then start the lighting of the candles.....
When N was one year old _____, When N was two years old, _____, etc.
I'm not sure I want to tell the full story- I've read it aloud and it takes about 2 minutes to read, so not terribly long. If I don't tell the full story, I'll just do the little vignettes when lighting the candles.
What do you do?

Two cats, two dogs, complete chaos.
