Happy Birthday Honey!!!

This has been the craziest week already...........and it's only Tuesday! *LOL* I am just sitting in shock that Christmas is just a few days away. Where did December go?!?!?!  It seems like we just had Thankgiving yesterday and now all of a sudden it's Christmas. Craziness! And I don't know about you but I always sit here the week of Christmas and think of all of these things I need to get. Even though I have been done Christmas shopping forever now, I keep thinking of all of these small things that I need to pick up this week. I am so happy that the kids will be on vacation from school sooooooooon! (Ask me if I feel the same way next week after they have been home for a week!) lol

Today is also my hubby's birthday which I am really excited about. I cannot imagine having a birthday this close to Christmas and according to my husband, it's definitely stinky. He said he has went his whole life with his birthday just blending in with the holidays and that makes me so sad.  We celebrate birthdays BIG in my family and each of our children have a special day that is all about them. I cannot imagine not making a HUGE deal about my kids birthday, no matter when it was....I mean seriously, even as an adult, I love my birthday because that's MY day. I think everybody should have at least one day out of the year where they feel especially loved and appreciated so today is that day for my wonderful husband....plus, I get to brag that he is one number higher than me in age until my birthday next September. LOL But I always try to make his birthday special because he basically said he feels like he has gotten the short end of the stick his entire life and I hate that for him. Nobody's birthday should be forgotten so I will be busy busy busy today while he is at work, making sure that his day is special even if he is stuck at work for 12 hours!!!

Do you have any family members who have birthdays close to the holidays? What do you do to make sure their day is special?


  1. Happy Birthday to your husband!

    My youngest turns 2 at the end of this month. Instead of having his party then, when everyone is getting ready to celebrate the New Year, we celebrate it in the beginning to mid January. That way we can still do a decent party and it's all about him!

  2. Not during the Christmas Holiday, but we have around Mother's Day.. My birthday and a grandson born on my birthday.. Mother's Day is a get together with family and we celebrate our special guys birthday.

  3. walking here with a smile. take care.. have a nice day ~ =D
