Christmas Birthdays

December is a busy month for most people. Holiday parties, shopping, decorating, baking and other festivities seem to dictate the entire month. While we don't necessarily have the busy social lives that some have, we do have 3 birthdays to contend with. The birthdays gear up on the 15th with my mother-in-law, then on the 21st with my husband and the 26th with my father-in-law.

That's a lot of birthdays in one family, awful close to Christmas. For some reason I find myself feeling a bit thrown by it all. It's hard to think of two great gifts so close together. Perhaps it would be in the best interest of my sense of sanity if I started thinking about their birthday gifts earlier in the year. Avoid the whole end of the year craziness that catches me a bit unprepared every year.

As for this year, well, I just hope my head cooperates long enough to get me through my lack of preparations.


  1. I usually have to plan Christmas gifts way in advance because the month of December is usually a tight financial month since students often cancel between Christmas and New Years. Because I didn't do this early year I am very stressed over the one birthday this month and Christmas presents. I do hope you will be able to come up with something and enjoy the season.


  2. Ohmygosh you do have a lot of birthdays this month! My oldest daughter was born on New Years Eve :) Have no idea what to get her for her birthday this year.

    I hope your head lets you enjoy the holidays!

    1. Thanks Della - I hope your pain will allow for your enjoyment too :)

  3. Oh my gosh. That does sound stressful. I hope this doesn't dampen your holidays.
