Thanksgiving & My Birthday Day

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. :) Now you may be wondering about the title of this blog. My birthday day? What is that? In our home, when it's your birthday it is tradition that you are waited hand and foot and pampered all day. You do no work and whatever you need someone will get it or do it for you. You choose your birthday dinner and cake and you are pretty much the king or queen for the day.

That being said, sometimes the actual birthday falls on a day when it's impossible to do this for the birthday person, like during the work week when everyone is out working or at school. So on a weekend day when everyone is home, we celebrate the person's birthday and call it their birthday day when they will be pampered all day by the rest of the family.

This year, Steve decided to do my birthday day on Thanksgiving! Which meant I had NOTHING to do all day yesterday for the big Thanksgiving feast. Usually he and I cook together for the rest of the family and company. Yesterday, I got to sleep in til 10:00! When I got up the turkey was stuffed and in the oven and the table was set with our nice china and crystal. I had breakfast and tea served to me while I watched the Macy's Parade and read a book. When company got here, I sat and chatted with them. It was wonderful! The kids helped and brought me whatever I wanted. Someone ELSE fed the dog! Pure bliss!!

After dinner, while we had dessert Mom and Joe gave me a new robe and slippers for my birthday. Soft and pink and fluffy. So nice!! Now Taco, who loves my old robe and thinks it's his, can officially have it. LOL

I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. I know I have a LOT to be grateful for this year.

See ya next time! :0)
