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
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
was born on the same day
Lucky Madeline Grace
That's another post.....
