The first week of Christmas is especially exciting for me as I celebrate the birthday of my youngest son. Yes, December 2nd- Tucker was officially three! I will never forget the nesting whirlwind that attacked three years ago, I had all decorations out, shopping done, dinners made and in freezer and much more.
We had a Christmas is coming themed family party with a Polar express twist! On December 2, I planned a special day. We started with our tradition of eating donuts for breakfast- Since Dunkin is around the corner. Then lunch with daddy… much to my efforts he didn’t seem to care too much. However, three days later when his party happened, he was pretty pumped!
This year i planned a family activity. We cut out cookies from sugar cookie dough- cooked them and then had a decorating extravaganza. This was extremely fun- everyone really got into it! Apple cider was brewing and the christmas cheer was in the air!
Everytime I set Tucker up to decorate he would start eating the cookie! oh well, they were delish!
I think it’s really special that he was born during the christmas season. I will never forget how full my heart was that first christmas. He was three weeks old!
The night of the family party I drifted off to sleep with incredible thankfulness for a sweet family that lives nearby. It was so precious to celebrate Tucker’s birthday with all of them!
Tucker- your amazing. smart- unbelievably strong willed. Sharp- nothing gets past you. You love your brother. You love Candy and you can climb anything! You delight everytime I seem you coloring, painting or doing puzzles- which is pretty much everytime I look at you! Your so special and I know Jesus has a special plan for your life. Happy Birthday, Tucker!
