Aloha Friday: Happy Christmas Eve / Birthday to Me!

It’s a very special day today for two reasons. The first being obvious – it’s Christmas Eve. There will likely be cookie baking and Christmas Eve Pajamas opening and maybe a drive through town to look at the lights. I am so excited about Christmas morning this year, and I know my 4 1/2 year old is probably even more excited and he doesn’t even know about all the awesome stuff he’s getting!

It’s also a special day because it’s my birthday! 28 years ago today my parents got the world’s coolest Christmas present a day early. People all across the world were singing carols of joy and I like to think it was partly because they knew I had been born and that eventually I’d go on to write this blog and make a difference in the lives of five readers everywhere. I’d fill hearts across the country with laughter and pictures of cute kids and smug feelings of, “Jeez, if this girl can land an amazing husband and two adorable kids, I’m pretty sure I could solve world hunger or something.” Which means I probably sort of cause world peace at some point. No need to thank me, though I do accept cookies, free books and techy swag (I might even review it for you).

So my Aloha Friday question this week is:

What are you doing today to celebrate my birthday (or Christmas Eve if you prefer, but honestly, who are we kidding?)?

    Happy Birthday to the baby Jesus, you and I have a good friend that shares this same birthday. As far as our plans go we will be attending church together as a family and then spending a quiet evening and day tommorow as there are no little ones and the teens think it is a time for peace and quiet go figure
