Christmas Eve Birthdays

My Mom is a
~Christmas Eve Baby~

Boy did she luck out
Every year us 3 kids have always made sure that we were with
My sister-n-law always makes her favorite dinner
She opens her presents at dinner
we have dessert, pecan pie
and sing Happy Birthday
 retire to the family room for
~The Big Christmas Eve Celebration~
She has always complained about that lousy birthday,
How as a kid she got one present instead of two from 
family relatives, unlike her sister!

So we have always made it known to the spouses that on
~Mom's birthday we are always there for her~
Not too long ago Mom said something
about that lousy birthdate again and I said,
"lousy, you made out big time"
Us kids have never went anywhere else for Christmas!
It's true, she is our tradition on Christmas Eve
all because she was dealt a bad hand for a  birthdate
she hadn't thought about it that way but for more than
three quarters of her life it was a darn good date to be born!
This year she is
Happy Birthday Moo
I love you and I will dearly miss you on
~your special day~
I can't remember the last time I wasn't there for you...

Her birthday last year
with my brothers

At Mom's with us and her brothers family a few days before her birthday
Her favorite..pecan pie
not cake
She was just down here visiting us

I think it was a perfect day to be born
and guess what...
3 years ago this Christmas Eve
her first Great Grandchild
~My Mattie~
was born on the same day
Lucky Madeline Grace
That's another post.....


  1. Happy birthday to your Mom! For sure, your family will have a Merry Christmas together! Enjoy the holidays, Kellie xx

  2. I'm a New Years Eve baby, I understand her idea of having to share her day with a holiday. But hey, the whole world is partying on mine! Merry Christmas.

  3. I'm really happy that Mattie gets to share Grams birthday. I just hope next year we can all get up there so they can have a big birthday party together! Mattie thinks that advent calendar you bought her is a count down to her birthday.

  4. What a nice family! My Mom's birthday was on Christmas Eve also. When she was with us, we always celebrated her birthday on Christmas Eve and Christmas on Christmas Day.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.


  5. Happy Birthday to your Mom and to Mattie! Thanks for sharing their birthdays with us. And, Kathy, thanks your for your words of encouragement.

  6. Mom's are so special!!!
    Merry Christmas to you friend!
    I hope your day was wonderful and your entrance (Below) is beautiful!

  7. I would say your Mom's lousy day looks pretty darned good to me. How sweet of the three of you to always make it even more special.

  8. Madeline Grace is adorable! What a present!

    Happy Holidays!


  9. So pretty your Mom is and you resemble a lot in her... happy family with lovely photos...
    Wish you a very Happy New Year
