I only have new furniture coming because my 12 year old ikea couch cushions died. We are getting a pertty leather set from Costco.

Quoting TheJerseyGirl:

 Awww...I bet you do miss him...that is so special. I love that they all made a bigger deal of your birthday since Im sure all the excitement of Christmas might make the cousins a little present crazy...lol. And how awesome is it that you were born on Christmas?!?!?!?! I'll be 45 on my next birthday too!

Quoting TheJerseyGirl:

Are you a Christmas baby ?!?!?


Quoting earthangel1967:


Not me not yet... I crazy love all the holidays but I like to totally focus on one at a time, I love to start thinking all christmassy the day after thanksgiving which is when I use to put my tree up and leave it up until new years day.



When we had to sell our big family house we raised the kids in this past year and downsize extremely, we donated all of our christmas decorations, large xmas treee everything to charity bc I have no room to store stuff like that in a 495 sq ft apt lol 



So we are probably going to go out on black friday and buy a small (easy to store) little tabletop xmas tree and that will be our only christmas decoration in our apt unless you want to count the Peppermint Twist christmas handsoap I got from Bath and Bodyworks. lol



Other than that we will still have our large family celebration and feast and game playing and my birthday party like we always do but we're doing it at one of our young adult kids houses bc there is more room


wreathhappy birthday Yes, Dec 25th I will turn 45. : ) No I never felt cheated my parents always gave me a birthday party and separate birthday gifts. (people ask me that all the time. : )


I have well over 100 cousins and they would often complain and get jealous (I dont blame them: ( .... bc my grandpa made such a HUGE big deal out of me being born on Christmas, the way he talked you would have thought I was the next best thing to baby jesus himself. HAHAHAHA  I miss my grandpa. : )

Thank you. My mom was 19 when she had me and she said she started going into labor pains in the morning so her and my dad RUSHED to their family's houses and delivered the presents as fast as they could and then rushed her to the hospital to have me (poor mom almost died having me too bc she hemoraged badly and went into shock ).

I swear my 40s have been my very very favorite age I have EVER been so far, I wonder if it gets even better in my 50s. I hope yours are great for you too. : )
