Christmas Eve Birthdays

my first baby grand
was born on my mom's birthday
~Christmas Eve~

it was a very snowy 
cold night in germany... 
i was there from start to finish
bringing this little one into
the world that night...

this is the first year she has been
for her birthday

so early morning 
before all the chaos to follow 
i let her open my present to her

it was a a musical porcelain doll
that my grandmother had given  to me when I was four
it sings the happy birthday song

then later when her 
great gram
got here we all 
celebrated with a tea party

i am hoping my 
got more pictures
i was a bit too busy
by then


  1. What an uplifting story! And what adorable children. So Sweet.

  2. Hi Kathy, great to see you up and running again. I feel like it has been forever since catching up. I love this sweet post!

  3. Kathy, this post is just so heart-warming. Like you, I enjoy making gifts of special things to people who will enjoy them as much as I have. I've given my DIL and daughter some of my grandmother's jewelry, and the last time we went to Denmark I wore some of my late MIL's rings, and gave them to her great-nieces as I met them.
    I wish you and yours all the best in 2012 - and I hope that we get to meet up at some point!

  4. What a darling little birthday girl. You can tell how she loves her musical doll. What a treasured gift. My first babe was born on Christmas. She arrived two weeks early so we named her Nichole (with and h) after St. Nicholas. I couldn't have asked for a better gift.

  5. Awwww, how sweet Kathy! I hope you had a wonderful time. Got a lot to catch up in your blog here it seems.
