Christmas Eve, Happy Birthday

The gifts are wrapped...

The stockings are hung...

We are ready for Christmas, but first we will be celebrating a birthday here at Creekside Cottage! Today is my husbands' birthday! I always make a point of celebrating it separate from Christmas, as those whose birthdays are near Christmas often complain that their birthdays get overlooked.

As a special birthday gift, my husband has 5 days off from work! What a treat for all of us! So, today we are going glow bowling, to pick up a last minute food item of two, dinner at my mom's, Christmas Eve Candlelight service at church, dessert, come back to the cottage to watch "The Nativity Story", open stockings! Somewhere in there we will squeeze birthday gifts...maybe before dinner...

My hope is that you and your families share special time together, remembering the Reason for the Season!


  1. Good morning! Wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas! And happy birthday to your husband too!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Mrs. Rabe. And Happy Birthday to your love!
