Christmas Rush

Oh the weather outside is frightful, as the song goes but all of us I am sure are trugging alone trying to finish out holiday shopping. I am done thank god, but just have to wrap everything.
Christmas is always a special time of year for us because my son Vincent was born on Christmas day so on top of all else I have to make him feel extra special and not "jipped" in anyway that day. No small feat I might add. Usually we have the mad rush of openning presents, family comes later, more opening of presents. It has gotten smaller over the years thank god because 8 years ago when I first moved into my house all I saw was a sea of wrapping paper 10ft deep.

Usually after dinner, I clear the table put out the birthday tablecloth and then we switch into birthday gear for my son, who by the way I would have named Nicholas in a heart beat if I didn't have to follow tradition and name him after my husband, If I had had a girl that day trust me she would have been named Noel. The way I look at it it is a sign to be born on Christ's birthday and my son is a very special little boy.
Wishing you all Happy Holidays.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How sweet. I remember the sea of wrapping paper, now I'm down to just a small muddle puddle.

And like your son my daughter was born 4 days after Christmas. It was easier to make her day special but once her little brother came along he thought he got "jipped". Just knew his sister got more than you just got to love them. :)
