Sorry, I've been kinda of MIA with post since my merge with Leelou Blogs but it has been a busy week for me. The month of December is super crazy for us every year. We have 6 birthdays in the month of December in my family. First starts with my middle sister whose birthday on the 4th, my dad's on the 14th, mine on the 16th, my daughter is on the 17th (she was due on Christmas Eve), my brother-in-law (married to my middle sister) on the 20th and their daughter on the 21st. Yes, yesterday was my 34th birthday and it was a good day of relaxing, laying around watching movies. I don't know what my hubby got me because he forgot it at work. He has been stressed lately there so I forgive him.
Tonight is my daughter, Avery, who is 6 today, birtday party with only family & close friends. We decided that we will have a big party with all her friends in the spring. When you have birthdays in Decemenber, it can be costly. I think we are going to celebrate her birthday in the spring with friends and have our family birthday party on her birthday. I know some people do this. My mom and I were talking to this man who had the most adorable looking 1 year old boy the other day in Walmart and his kids birthdays are in December as well and he & his wife have a swimming party for their child in the summer and then celebrate with family in December.
Does anyone else have birthdays in December or close to Christmas? If so, how do you celebrate being so close to Christmas?
