Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, a few weeks ago I asked you what you wanted for your birthday. You said a swim party. After asking you again last night you suggested tickets to the circus. Congrats on being the biggest (almost) 31 year old kid I know. Dear Warm Tumbled Jeans From the Dryer, you. complete. me. Dear Plastic Santa, thanks for A) forcing me to learn how to hotwire things through my headlights B) giving the Exploder more holiday flair and C) reminding me of my Papa. (The Santa he mounted to the front of our VW bus growing up no longer makes me want to hide under a blanket). Dear Husband, love you more than birthdays, warm bevvy's, and childhood memories tucked in my back pocket.

Are there any other December Birthday's out there? Tim's is Dec 28th. I always feel so bad for him since it's so close to Christmas. PS, you can download some free holiday music here, here, and here. Better than a membership to the jelly of the month club!

December 28th is my precious little brother's birthday, too! He's turning eleven this year! I always said he was my favorite Christmas present, since we joke that we're twins. :)

My husband's birthday was last Saturday, December 3. It's hard because all the birthday/Christmas present shopping has to happen all at once. He has 6 months in between each of my gift-giving occasions to build up more ideas! Still, it makes December that much more fun!

I was a Christmas Eve baby. My birthday sometimes gets lost in the shuffle (even more so now that I'm an adult), and I can't tell you how many b-day gifts I've had wrapped in Christmas paper. BUT, I'm glad it's before the holiday, not after. On my birthday people are still excited and merry, but it seems like once Christmas comes and goes those poor people with birthdays after Christmas are completely forgotten.

My birthday is December 23rd, my husband's on the 17th, and my brother's on the 14th. December is a fun month!

My husband's is Dec 18th, exactly a week before Chirstmas. And everyone always forgets, or are unable to make any birthday party because they have holiday plans. And he gets the two-in-one gift shaft. I try my best to keep them completely separate events.
And remember peeps, if you are giving a birthday gift to someone who has a December birthday, do NOT wrap it in Christmas paper. ;)

No December Birthdays here....but Evan's and baby girl's will be in Jan. Evan also wanted a swim party this year, so we are having it at the Aqua Tots in Rockwall! Indoor swimming in a heated pool! I think it's the best idea ever! I bet they do 31st parties the same way they do 6 year old parties!

The Mister's is this Friday...we're celebrating with hommade shrimp tacos and cake!

My daughter's is on the 19th-best Christmas present ever! :) I work hard to make sure her birthday and Christmas are totally separate!

The Buddy's birthday is on the 20th. Inuetero, we called him Kink, so this year, and for the foreseeable future, we will celebrate Kinkmas - that special holiday that comes before Christmas. Merry Kinkmas Beckett!!

Yeppers! TODAY is my birthday!
Happy Pearl Harbor Day!!!

Yay December birthdays! I always wanted a pool party, but when that didn't work, we had boat parties instead. They put Christmas trees out in the bay every year, so it was even better than a pool party, because I could claim they were for me.

Also, not sure how close either of the locations are, but I know you had fun with Warrior Dash so: http://thecolorrun.com/locations/

Can I just say you are my absolute favorite blog to read? Always great pictures, funny stories, and an evident love through you and your hubby. Love it! Have a great day!

Our daughter's Birthday is January 1st and we decided when she was born that we would make it ever so special with it's own traditions (has always stayed up until at least midnight, after we say "Happy New Year!" we say "Happy Birthday" and she gets to open her presents right-then-there from us and her brother)...she loves her Birthday!!

Happy Birthday Tim! (from a stranger)

my birthday is the 28th, too! It's a real bummer that its so close to Christmas, but i've learned to just deal with it. last year i celebrated turning 25 in japan with my husband (he was deployed there). This year we're back in Guam.. our home for 2 more years.. only benefit of being in Guam is I kind of get 2 birthdays since we're a day ahead :) happy birthday, tim!

Mine's December 10th...
Tough to get a bike for your birthday, but be snowed in and unable to use it for nearly 5 months!!

Sarah said...

Mine is on the 20th! During December, I love having my bday during the holidays...who doesn't want Christmas and your birthday in one week? It makes the rest of the year kind of uneventful, but totally worth it. Plus, I can almost always guarantee that I'm out of school/able to get off work. :)

LOVE THAT SANTA!!!

Rebecca said...

My 4 year old twin sons have birthdays on Dec 28th! It's crazy trying to figure out gifts with events so close together. I'm tempted to throw them a half-birthday party one year but I know they'll want a party with all the trimmings on the 28th as well. But really, celebrating them twice in one year would be a gift in itself. I'd just have to throw half parties for their brother and sister as well. This could be very fun!

Amanda said...

My birthday is December 28th, too! For the first time in years, my best friend will be in town to celebrate with me!

Autumn Star said...

My birthday is tomorrow... :) Happy early birthday Tim. :)

Love the reference to the jelly of the month by the way. Love love love!

geri said...

Love your Blog
