Regrettably for my parents, not one of their children has managed to keep their birthdays straight. It’s not our faults, really. The dates are back-to-back. The 14th and the 15th. Easily inverted. Especially when you add family birthdays on the 13th, the 17th, and the 20th. Throw in Christmas, New Years, and my brother’s anniversary, all following on the figurative heels of Thanksgiving, and December becomes one giant month of cake. Not to say that is a bad thing.

There was something special about heading into the theater to see the Hobbit Saturday night. We said “Happy birthday, Dad” on the way in (9:30)and “Happy birthday, Mom” on the way out (12:30). We ate stir-fry for him Saturday and on Sunday braved the storm and ate lunch out to celebrate her. And in between all these festivities my mom and I (with Sister Kate on Sunday) baked for two days straight. I am not sure it is humanly possible for a family our size to eat the number of cookies we have in production for the holidays. We shall try nobly anyway.

And so it is that Christmas and snow are upon us. I am thankful for a coat that literally zips up above my eyebrows and for a family to play with and love with and celebrate with.
