Winter Solstice Birthday

My birthday falls on December 21st, the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. It's really not a good time of year for a birthday, because it often gets lost with the Christmas rush.

Birthday roses
My husband Terry always makes my birthday special. This year, we went out to dinner twice. And look at my thoughtful gifts! He bought me a dozen roses, some very fancy chocolates, and the Leg Lamp ornament from "A Christmas Story." I am so lucky!

I love cappuccino, so this tiny chocolate cappuccino masterpiece astounded me!

Leg Lamp!
One of my favorite Christmas movies is "A Christmas Story"

My mom and dad went with to dinner on my actual birthday, and were also very generous with their gift. We all had a good time at my favorite restaurant... Olive Garden!

Oh that is a fabulous lamp leg ornament from my favorite Christmas movie. If I ever see one, I will buy it.
You had a great birthday, I can tell.

Hi Terra,

Yes, it was a really fun day. The leg lamp ornament was from the 2009 Hallmark collection, so they are probably still available!
